Darla Skaf was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. At that time, her only nautical adventures included ‘Tuesday Night Sailing Races’ at Etobicoke Yacht Club aboard a Grampian 28 and watching the ‘Tall Ships Sail-Past’ in Toronto Harbour.
Being an avid traveler, Darla stopped in Ft. Lauderdale to warm up, after trekking Annapurna in Nepal. She quickly fell in love with the Yacht Capital of the World… and never left.
Darla’s background is in finance and her education began by attending Humber College in Toronto. It was there that she focused on Accounting Principles and Financial Reporting. Over the subsequent 20+ years in Ft. Lauderdale, her accounting knowledge was expanded to include industry-based businesses such as a Yacht Interior Design firm, a Yacht Provisioning company and a custom Yacht Interior Workroom.
It is this diverse experience, along with her vibrant and energetic nature, that has made her an asset to Fairport Yacht Support. As our Administrative Manager, Darla supervises and supports our staff in day-to-day operations.
Darla lives in Pompano Beach and continues her love of the water by boating, snorkeling and walking on the beach.
