Kevin O'Conor

President

Kevin H. O’Conor spent 15 years as a professional mariner in command of luxury private and charter yachts up to 300 feet in length. Captain Kevin O’Conor took the opportunity to move ashore when he was offered the position as Head of Acquisitions with Triquest Florida, a private real estate development company in 2015.

His career in the yachting industry included world-class training programs, the experience of large high-profile yachts, that include a 300’ (90m) Sail Yacht with worldwide cruising. He also has extensive refit and new build management experience.

Kevin is "hands-on" and is the driving force behind the idea and execution of Berth One Palm Beach. He is always available and can provide trusted referrals or recommendations to accommodate our mega yacht clientele. 

Carson Maddocks

Marketing & Advertising

Carson is our Marketing & Advertising specialist from down under! He's a great blend of family man, class-clown and hard worker. When this Aussie isn’t at home with his family and chocolate lab, he’s helping businesses get in front of the right people at the right time, or helping automate their workflows, ultimately saving his client’s time and money.

As someone who is as fearless as he is adventurous, Carson is not afraid to eat an entire tub of chocolate ice cream in one sitting - or adventurously backpack across South East Asia.

Though he has never worked on a yacht, working with Kevin has allowed Carson to gain in-depth insights into the complex large yacht industry from somebody who knows it best.
