Professional Yacht Broker

I am currently living in Newport, North Carolina with my wife Cindy. We came to Newport with our three sons 12 years ago to work with the company True World Marine that had relocated to Beaufort, NC. I began my employment with True World Marine in 2002 as Human Resources Manager and new boat sales. During my employment until the company closed in 2015, I attended numerous boat shows along the East Coast from New York to Miami as part of the sales team. While working in that environment I gained an insight into the vast array of leisure and fishing vessels that are available for those who love the water. Whether you sail, fish, or just pleasure cruise I can assist you in finding the boat that fits your lifestyle; or I will help you sell your boat.

I grew up loving the water from a young age, being born in Minnesota, the land of 10,000 lakes. Water sports were part of my early childhood. Our family moved to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida when I was 7 years old and the ocean became my playground. I know the love of the open water and the desire to access the beauty and treasure afforded to those with a ship to sail. Some of my greatest enjoyment on the water has been catching giant blue fin tuna on Stellwagen Banks out of Gloucester Harbor and landing large, giant halibut in Kodiak Alaska. Many fishing stories to tell.

My life journey has taken me many places around the world. First stop was Vietnam in the Army then Colombia, Mexico, stops in Brazil, Uruguay and Russia to name a few. My journey took me to South Korea, together with my wife, to work for a newspaper as an assistant to the president of the company for English speaking guests and dignitaries.

I worked in international communications for 13 years. During those years I came to understand that we are all pretty much the same as to what we want and expect in a relationship, that being fairness and honesty. I apply those ethics to my approach in all communications and aspects of the sale.

Whether you are interested in listing your boat or you are looking for a boat to get you out on the water, let’s work together to achieve your goal.
