Offering CAPTAIN SUPPORT SERVICES, Tim Leachman, a native Californian of Newport Beach and Santa Barbara, has been sailing yachts and operating commercial vessels for over 38 years.  After a year cruising Mexico and Central America, he arrived in Costa Rica aboard his sailboat "Caribbee" with Katie, his mate, in 1993. Falling in love with the area he decided to put the anchor down indefinitely, establishing Land Sea Services.
     Based out of LAND SEA SERVICES in Golfito Bay, Costa Rica, Tim is available for YACHT MAINTENANCE CONTRACTS for foreign flagged vessels.  He can keep a watch on your vessel while you do some inland travel.  He's a good resource on cruising anchorages and routes too as he's put in plenty of sea miles making deliveries via Florida through the Panama Canal to California. This past decade Tim made not only coast to coast passages including more than a dozen canal transits- He's completed deliveries to Mexico, United States, Tahiti, Tonga and several Central and South American ports too.
