My Present
Hi! I'm Senior Charter Broker John Cichanowicz. I have been a part of Northrop & Johnson since 2017. I love being a Charter Broker and part of the N&J team where I truly enjoy sharing the wealth of knowledge and experience I garnered throughout my career in the yachting and charter industries with my clients.

My Past
I am originally from Rochester, New York, where my love of life on the water began. I spent my childhood motor boating and sailing on Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence Seaway. My summers were spent cleaning and crewing my family’s yachts; thus, my interest in yachting was born and bred. My professional yachting career began in 1988 when, at the age of 20, I moved to Florida to chase my dream of cruising the world on the open seas. In 1990, I attained my 100-ton captain's license, which was followed by my 1600-ton license in 1997. I then became a Charter Captain and cruised thousands of nautical miles during my 20-year career at sea.

My favorite areas to charter include The Bahamas, the Caribbean islands and the Mediterranean Sea. Having successfully captained hundreds of charters, I decided it was time to begin a new chapter. I moved ashore in 2008 and hung up my Captain’s hat to become a Charter Broker. I joined Burgess yachts, where I worked for nine years as a charter broker.

My Future
I look forward to continuing to help create dream yacht charter holidays for my clients for years to come.

My Outside-office Life
When not working, I enjoy horseback riding, waterskiing, snow skiing and traveling the world, as well as a love of all creatures great and small. You will often see me out and about with my little dog Dax.
