When I started
selling yachts nearly 20 years ago I would have never guessed that
this hobby would have become a profession. As I look back at the
years now, the boats I've sold, and the new friends I've met I can
think of no other profession I'd rather be in.

I've been both the Vice President
and a Director of the Gulf Coast Yacht Brokers Association (GCYBA)
and I am currently in my 2nd term as a Regional Captain for the
Yacht Brokers Association of America (YBAA). I am also one of the
oldest Florida Licensed Brokers in Texas (#1815), which allows me
to buy and sell boats in Florida and I have received Beneteau's
Top Gun award 3 times for sales and dedication. I believe there
is no substitute for experience when it comes to buying a boat.
Whether it's power or sail, I'm sure that my experience can help
you make the right choice.
Of course I've never lost my passion for boating either. My wife
and two daughters, who are 12 and 9, enjoy sailing our '99 Catalina
320, Poco Yate, on Galveston Bay and the Texas Gulf Coast. I would
look forward to working for you and showing your family why I believe
this is the best family oriented activity you can pursue.
