Jon has also always been extremely active in the boat and yachting world. He started boating with his family on the Mississippi in the 80's. He has done a ton of recreational boating up and down the Mississippi, all over Florida and the Caribbean. On top of all of the fun boating he has made a career out of being a marine professional and yacht captain with his 100 ton master license.
Jon started a marine detailing and maintenance company in Lake City, Red Wing and Wabasha in the late 90's. This led to a yacht maintenance business named "Marine Concierge" which he owned and ran for 6 years based mostly out of Gulf Harbour Marina in Fort Myers Florida. Yacht maintenance graduated Jon into becoming a boat captain. He was the primary captain on a variety of yachts up to 80'. He has extensive for hire cruising time in the Bahamas, Florida, and many delivery trips up and down our nations river systems.
About 10 years ago Jon made the move from FL back to MN to kick off his business "Market's Marine Concierge" on the Mississippi, St Croix and Lake Minnetonka areas of MN and Western WI. In addition to selling, fixing and babysitting boats you will also find him kicked back on his own boat at his home marina of Treasure Island North of Red Wing.
