A Midwest native, Juan owned several successful businesses before being persuaded in 1997 to join a friend selling boats in Minnesota. He quickly developed a passion for boating and the yachting industry as a whole.
Subsequent opportunities afforded him valuable experience selling both new and brokerage yachts, working with new boat builders for improved manufacturing practices, delivering boats throughout the United States, and teaching new owner’s boat and yacht operation and maintenance. Juan’s previous business expertise frequently comes in handy for trouble-shooting mechanical or electronic issues.
In 2008 Juan and his wife, Liz, a marine journalist, relocated to South Florida in pursuit of warmer temps and sunnier skies.
Juan holds distinction as a Certified Professional Yacht Broker (CPYB), Master 100 Ton Captains License and is an active member of the Florida Yacht Brokers Association (FYBA).

I just wanted to take a few moments to comment on my experience buying a boat through my yacht broker, Juan Pasch.
Juan was available to me anytime, anyday, to answer my questions regarding the boat and he always got back to me right away with the answers I needed.
Furthermore I felt a friendship and sense of trust developing with him that I see was quite justified. He did what he said and more – and the boat was all he represented it as. Juan was also helpful in getting the boat surveyed and shipped and handled the financial details with complete professionalism.
Its a pleasure to deal with someone who is making sure he is doing everything he can to ensure a satisfying purchase for me and to do it with friendliness accessibility and professionalism.
Next time I’m in Florida I’ll enjoy buying him a beer!

Thank you so much for the help with the sale of my boat. From listing it, to selling it, the transaction, communication, and professional manner in everything was outstanding.
You got me the most for the boat, even more than my local broker who I was going to list with, but you showed interest first. Thanks again and have a great year.

A letter of congratulations is due for your efficient and professional brokerage with sale of my 35′ Fountain Lightning. After 15 months of being listed with a dealer in Destin, Florida, you were able to locate a bona fide buyer within 3 weeks of your listing.
My boat was a niche item due to the power, drive upgrades so not a “cookie cutter” offering.
All of your listing, marketing, presentation, and sale contract was done in extremely timely and perfectly represented fashion. Also the fact that the boat was 675 miles from your brokerage was also impressive from the results you got. Your attention to detail and almost daily updates were deeply appreciated and comforting. Your enthusiastic representation made this the perfect yacht brokerage experience.
I would not hesitate to pass on the ultimate praise of yourself to any future boat buyers and or sellers, I look forward to any future boat dealings with you, at any time. Thank you again for an incredibly smooth, easy, and gratifying brokerage experience.

I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you how much I appreciate the effort Juan Pasch put forward in concluding my recent purchase of the “Sea View”. I have been looking for a quality Bluewater Yacht for over a year and dealt with several yacht brokers during that search. I am very happy you had the boat of my dreams and were instrumental in the transaction. I am sure you are very proud of the numerous certifications you hold but “true professional” should be added. I never had to worry about actions being completed, status of the deal, who had what responsibility, or whether I was being told the truth.
Juan clearly went above and beyond in making sure everything was done even after the money had been transferred and the deal was consummated. Helping me find a temporary marina and acting as the Captain when the boat had to be moved were examples of your professionalism and commitment to the customer.
That kind of service is rare today and you are to be congratulated for the effort. It goes without saying that if I meet anyone who is looking for a yacht, Juan’s name will be the first one I give them with my whole-hearted recommendation. If there is anything I can do for you, please let me know.
