Charles Badoian

Yacht Broker


At 12 years old Charles told his mom he wanted to live on a boat and that dream became a reality at 35 when he moved onboard a baby trimaran full time. Growing up in Greece and moving back to the USA for highschool and college, Charles has never veered far from the water. After a decade in the Florida Keys and the Bahamas, Charles is now based in Bocas del Toro Panama, living on his Shuttleworth catamaran. Charles has a deep understanding of ship systems and has been living off grid for over a decade, with a significant amount of shorthanded performance sailing. “There are few things I appreciate more than watching the eyes of a new owner light up when taking the helm of their new boat for the first time, or seeing a well-loved boat going to a great new home, and knowing I helped make that a reality”

Now, Charles joins the growing team at TMC at its new offices at Red Frog Marina in Panama. Just north of the Panama Canal, Red Frog Marina is a superb location to slip your catamaran before a crossing in the canal or hauling out at the renowned Shelter Bay Marina. For assistance with any work or logistics you might need help with in Panama, be sure to contact Charles!
