About Tiffany Herrington
Growing up in coastal southern California, I developed a deep love for the water at an early age. While my family never owned any boats, I was fortunate to have friends who did, and jumped at every opportunity to get out on the water, whether to go deep sea fishing on a trawler, crabbing on a rickety old rowboat, or sailing in a catamaran.
Upon later migrating to the beautiful Pacific Northwest, I took sailing lessons and relished the experience of learning to navigate and work harmoniously with the elements. I vowed to have my own sailboat one day, but first, my love of travel led me to Central America and then to Europe, where I lived for several years in Berlin — a dynamic and vibrant capital, albeit not a sailing-centric one.
My desire to realize my long-held dream of having a sailboat was stoked while traveling among the Greek islands one summer, where I was restricted to only being able to visit the islands that the ferries frequented. I longed to see the other less-inhabited islands dotting the horizon and decided then and there that it was time to pursue the sailing life I’d long imagined. I subsequently returned to the U.S. to the place I knew to be a perfect jumping off point for the endeavor: Seattle. I am thrilled to now own and live aboard my first sailboat, a humble but sturdy 1969 Bristol 33, together with my equally enthused, boat-loving partner.
The newest addition to the team at Waterline Boats / Boatshed Seattle, I bring with me a unique range of experience and diverse set of skills from two very different professional backgrounds: the legal field, and the brewing industry. To be able to work for people who are incredibly invested in and passionate about what they do, alongside a team of capable brokers who are driven to help other boat lovers find their perfect vessel, is an absolute pleasure and dream come true. I'm very much looking forward to contributing to this endeavor in my role as Brokerage Coordinator and Developer.
