Meet Dmitry Lyubimov of UNIQ Los Angeles

Dmitry, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I started with buying my first boat – a 31′ Sea Ray Sundancer, just for pleasure. And when my other business (I had an Advertising company) went down, I had to figure something new – that’s how the idea of renting a boat came to my mind.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Oh yeah, there was a lot of obstacles! Starting from getting all the licenses, hiring right and reliable crew, learning how to be a sales, customer service, accountant, crew member (I use to go as a crew on every charter) and much more… And going forward boats that breaks time to time and usually at the worst moment. But overall, I love how much I learned within this years and how people say, “A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor” – same as in business.

Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I consider myself a businessman and entrepreneur. I have worked in many different sectors, but I started out selling cars from auctions. I then sold electronics, started an advertising company in Los Angeles (which I still own), ventured into the hotel business in Bel Air, CA, worked in luxury car rental services, and finally run an Online store. It’s impossible to know what business venture will be successful and which ones won’t. So, it’s wise to take on new projects, assess unique challenges, and correct your directions on the way.

Any big plans?
Yes, we are planning to expand our yacht charter operations in Monaco, Sydney and Dubai.

How did you choose Miami as your new city, and how well is it going so far?
Miami is one of my favorite cities for yachting as there’s so much you can do, numerous places to go on a yacht, great restaurants with boat docks, and private islands. Miami is definitely made for yachting because the ocean is always warm for swimming and enjoying the water toys. You could even go to the Bimini Islands in the Bahamas for a few days.

So far, it’s going well for us. We already have ten yachts in Miami, and they come in different sizes, from 40′ to 120′, with a wide range of options and different budgets. Our yachts can fulfill any desires, and I would love your readers to check them out. If they want quality yacht charters, boat rental services or have any questions, we’re ready to answer. We are happy to offer luxury yacht rental services and some discounts to your readers!”
