San Blas Islands, Panama
Stephen Reverand came aboard David Walters Yachts with a lifelong love of boats and more than three decades of offshore and inland sailing experience. As a teenager, he restored a cedar-planked Barnegat Bay sneakbox and sailed local lakes in the New York area. As a young professional, he upgraded to a classic 35-foot yawl and sailed from New York Harbor, east on Long Island Sound to Block Island, R.I., still one of his favorite ports of call. Later he raised his family on the Chesapeake Bay catching bushels of blue crabs from his 22-foot center-console runabout. Most recently, Reverand cruised his 42-foot Tartan staysail sloop Zephyr over 10,000 nautical miles from the Chesapeake to New England to the Bahamas and back following the fair winds for more than four years.
Before transitioning to cruising sailor and yacht broker, Reverand enjoyed a colorful career in the media. He served as a foreign correspondent for NBC News, spending six years in Asia. When he returned stateside, he joined the Discovery Channel where he oversaw the hit adventure series Deadliest Catch and received a Peabody Award for his work as executive producer on the documentary Black Sky: The Race for Space. Later, Reverand joined National Geographic as the head of nature films and specials production filming in many of the most exotic destinations around the globe.
In keeping with his love of boats, Reverand also created, produced and directed the PBS television series Boatworks and wrote the long-running boating humor column Deviant Readings for BoatUS Magazine.
