Cassidy has been boating all of his life having been brought up on the island of Malta. After years of enjoying the ocean on a recreational level, he decided to turn his love of the sea into a career and obtained a BA Honours degree in Maritime Law from Plymouth University. Cass is also a commercially endorsed Yachtmaster and has worked as Captain / Crew on a number of yachts prior to becoming a broker. In 2003 he hung up his deck shoes and moved to Dubai to help set up a brokerage business to cater for the Middle-East market. He then went on to be recruited as Sales Manager for Fairline Middle East which had the dealership for the brand in most of the MENA region. In 2011, Cass moved back to Europe and joined the Sunseeker London Group as Sales Broker for Sunseeker Malta.
