Cyndi Nicholson

Sailing Specialist

Please welcome Sailing Specialist, Cyndi Nicholson, to the Lakeshore Yacht Sales team. Cyndi has been engaged in sailing all her life. From cruising Lake Michigan as a kid on her Dad’s boats, to hosting others on sailing adventures in the Virgin Islands, as well as she and partner Jarrad Pitts now getting their Morgan 461 ready for live-aboard. She began working at a yacht club in high school and continued into a long career in the yacht club industry, in yacht club management and as an Adjunct Professor of Sailing with Grand Valley State University. Cyndi received her USGC Master Captain’s License in 2011, and enjoys helping others discover life on the water. There has never been a time that she can’t remember daily life involving sailing and the people that embrace the lifestyle. “My philosophy is that being on the water is a gesture of passion, and it means something different to each person. I strive to help people understand the different kinds of experiences they can have on a sailboat. From a competitive racing boat to a comfortable leisurely cruiser, sailboats can be very diverse and I enjoy helping people discover what may work for them.” Cyndi’s career has been based on exceptional customer service, and when you work with Cyndi you’re not only getting an experienced, dedicated professional but a passionate fellow sailor. Her focus is to bring the right buyers and sellers together, and facilitate a seamless transaction for you. She believes “every boat is someone’s dream boat” and with her diligence in follow through and broad industry reach, she will work for you to make those connections happen. You may contact Cyndi at or (773) 480-3571.
