Luke Buxton grew up in Sayville, NY, and learned to sail at the Wet Pants Sailing Association on the Great South Bay. He was lucky to have parents who liked to sail and spent most of his summers on Fire Island. Luke attended Salem State University in Salem, MA, where he majored in education and was a member of the sailing team. He currently lives in Rowley, MA, with his wife and two children.

Luke's introduction and what became his passion for racing and cruising sailboats started with his next-door neighbor, who would gather a group of kids to race and help deliver boats from the north to the south shore of Long Island. This experience sparked Luke's choice to make the sailboat business his career. He first worked at Weeks Yacht Yard, building DN ice boats and Force 5 sailboats. Luke moved back to Massachusetts in 1997 and worked for Dion's Yacht Yard as a rigger and painter. In 2016, he moved to Manchester Marine as a customer service and project manager, refitting and conducting annual maintenance on yachts ranging from 13 feet to 65 feet. Luke currently sails Stars and recently bought a Finn. He and his wife also owned a J/30 and C&C 29 and enjoyed racing and cruising both boats.

"I have been impressed with the quality of the products Quantum offers, and I feel fortunate to be working with the company. Quantum's team approach, education, and giving back to the sport is a winning combination for all types of sailing. My goal is to help each customer with the overall aspects of how they use their boat, whether it's a day sailor or mega yacht."
