About Us

Alaska Yacht Services

In 1952, Cliff Taro founded our parent company, North Pacific Maritime, to provide vessel agency services for the growing number of ships doing business in Alaska. The company has continued to grow and prosper, over the years becoming an integral part of the shipping industry in Alaska. Yacht Services of Alaska was created as a division of North Pacific Maritime to assist yacht captains navigating in Alaskan waters.

Les Cronk, Paul Axleson, and Destiny Bell in our Ketchikan office, Fred Angerman of our Wrangell office, Fred Reeder of our Sitka office, Drew Green of our Juneau office, Stew Stephens of our Skagway office, and Michael Lichter of our Anchorage office all bring many years experience servicing vessels in Alaska.
