IYC (International Yacht Collection) has announced the addition of Susan Flammia to its Luxury Yacht Vacation Division. With yachting tenure that spans twenty years and broad experience in all aspects of the industry—both on land and at sea—Susan rejoins colleague Jennifer Saia in presenting and managing luxurious vacations for exclusive clientele through IYC. Her most recent post was at Yachting Partners International.
Like many in the industry, Susan’s legacy includes making a critical lifestyle change from the cold of New England to the warmth of Fort Lauderdale and, ultimately, the call of the sea. She began as a stewardess and quickly realized a passion for food. Soon be-coming a chef, she went on to cooking aboard both charter and private yachts and experienced first-hand the rigors of crew work and the great benefits of travelling to exotic destinations near and far. In 1992, she transitioned to land-based support of luxury travel, founding “A Yachting Holiday,” the respected luxury travel venture. In addition to organizing client itineraries and vacation fulfillment, she personally travelled to varied destinations to ensure her clients’ expectations would be realized.
Jennifer Saia, Executive Director of IYC’s Luxury Yacht Vacation Division said, "I am thrilled to have Sue as part of the IYC team in the Luxury Yacht Vacation Division. We worked together 20 years ago at The Sacks Group and we've been trying to re-connect ever since. I respect her dedication to her clients and attention to detail with her charter bookings. I know she will thrive here at IYC and we all welcome her enthusiasm and knowledge to round out our professional group of Charter Agents."
As an IYC Charter Agent, Susan works directly with the chartering public as well as travel agents, matching the perfect yacht to the precise needs of varied charter clients. This includes knowing the yachts and their crew in addition to extensive familiarization with global destinations. From initial inquiry to all aspects of the charter experience and logistic needs, Susan Flammia’s task is to fulfill the yachting dream seamlessly.
