Debbie has been around boats her whole life. She grew up in Eastern Washington spending every open weekend at the river with her family and their ski boat. After college she was introduced to sailing in the Seattle area and fell in love with it and soon became an avid racer splitting her time on the sound and Lake Washington! She met her husband, Jon Thompson, after a race at the CYC clubhouse in the mid 80’s and they have been racing and cruising together ever since. They have 2 daughters who grew up sailing and love spending time on their Cal 33 and Cal 20. Debbie loves to network with boating friends to find the right boat for her customers. Debbie lives in Tacoma and her focus is listing and selling boats in the South Sound.

Nancy Draper is not one to sit at the dock. Rather than lounge on the beach waiting for husband Van to finish racing Hobie Cats one day, she and a friend found an “extra” catamaran to take around the course. She’s never looked back. Nancy’s love of boating has taken her on many cruising adventures with Van, including her current favorite adventure of finding remote anchorages where she can launch her kayak and explore.
