Marine electronics specialist Raymarine recognised its 2019 Pro Ambassador of the Year at last week’s ICAST.
The recipient, Captain Frank Crescitelli, has operated Fin Chaser Charters in the busy, but productive waters surrounding New York City for nearly 20 years and has been a key partner with Raymarine since the very beginning.
“New York Harbor is one of the busiest navigation environments in the nation,” said Crescitelli. “There’s a lot of traffic and security zones and I need to be able see and understand all of it to stay safe. I trust and believe in Raymarine products and FLIR technology so much that I’m legitimately happy and excited to talk about it with anyone at any opportunity.”
“Frank is a complete embodiment of everything we could hope for in an ambassador and partner,” added FLIR Maritime Marketing Director Jim Hands. “Anyone who knows Frank understands that he goes to work every day in a challenging environment with a special enthusiasm, passion and work ethic.
“He appreciates the opportunities he’s worked so hard to create for himself, so it means a lot that he trusts our products to create safe and memorable experiences for his customers. We value our relationship with Frank very highly, and are proud to recognise his knowledge, enthusiasm and unique brand of outreach with our top honour, the 2019 Pro Ambassador of the Year.”
Other Raymarine Pro Ambassadors recognized for their contributions to the brand and the industry include Captain Albert Hernandez, of Cutler Bay, Florida; Angling International World Trends correspondent, Italo Labignan, of Welland, Ontario; and Captain Morris Campbell, of Punta Gorda, Florida.
