Captain Triporo was born in Hurst, Texas where he lived an active childhood enjoying baseball, football, ice hockey and boating on the nearby lakes. His true passion for the water began when he left the Lone Star State and moved with his family to Tampa, Florida where he indulged in the pristine waters of the gulf which would eventually inspire him to take up yachting as a career.
Following college, Triporo moved to the yachting capital of the world. Being in Fort Lauderdale provided him with the opportunity to begin his maritime career as an engineer onboard luxury vessels ranging in length from 70 to 350 feet. His continuous hard work in the industry led him to his current rank of Captain/Engineer with the goal of reaching his 500 Ton USCG License. Captain Triporo has built 3 yachts in Italy as lead engineer and as captain has manned yachts up to 120ft. Currently he holds a 200 Ton USCG License with a MCA Y4 rated engineering ticket.
In his free time, Triporo enjoys watching Chicago Blackhawks professional hockey, volunteering and helping children with their educational needs, fishing with friends and live music. His oath to protect marine life and helping children all over the world can be seen directly through his non-profit as he dedicates a percentage of sales to foundations that exist to do just that.
