Terra Gaffga

Yacht Charter

Terra joins RJC Yacht Charters after spending 9 years managing one of the most successful private charter yachts/programs in the Bahamas. Her multi-faceted career, from working onboard as crew to liaising directly with charter brokers and guests, provides a unique draw to clients and fellow brokers alike.

A native Floridian, she grew up on the coast of northern Palm Beach County and fell in love with nature, both terrestrial and oceanic, from a young age. She graduated from Stetson University with a degree in Environmental Science.

Terra discovered the world of yachting when she met her husband Scott, a yacht captain. After tying the knot, Scott realized his charter yacht program was growing in popularity to the point he needed additional hands on- and off-deck. Terra joined the team to assist in any way possible, mostly managing the office, but playing an integral role in logistics and liaising for charters. During her tenure with the program she also spent 2 years on a new-build team orchestrating the interior design team and interior outfitting for the build in China.

She calls Jupiter, FL home with her husband, 7-year-old daughter, 4-year-old son and a trusty yellow lab named Sampson.
