Nicolaus was born into a sailing family in Philadelphia. He started sailing at the age of two, and has been at it ever since. He grew up racing sailboats internationally, and in 2015 moved to South Florida to pursue a career in the yachting industry.
After several years of coaching sailboat racing, he earned his captain’s license and ventured into the world of deliveries and charters. Nicolaus soon grew tired of being away from home for weeks at a time, and proceeded to apply his knowledge of yachting and boats into a career in yacht brokering.
In his spare time, Nicolaus enjoys racing his Star boat and cruising on his 40’ monohull, cycling, tinkering with cars and working with his hands.
