Raised with strong Midwest values, Jeff has been called “one of Florida’s leading marine industry advocates by Southern Boating Magazine and “one of the top yacht brokers in the USA.”
Hooked on boating at 7, Jeff has a treasure trove of boating experience & memories. Two memorable boating adventures were a 35-day 30,000 mile circumnavigation and West Marine’s “Pacific Cup” nonstop sailboat race from San Francisco to Hawaii.
Jeff married his passion for boating with business in 1987 by becoming a Florida Yacht Broker. As an accomplished yacht broker with over 25 years of experience, he brings a wealth of experience to the table.
Jeff serves on the Florida Yacht Brokers Association (FYBA) board of directors as chair of the Public Affairs Committee, advocating for the marine industry. Accomplishments include doubling the 90-day sales tax exemption to 180 days, Florida’s $18,000 sales use tax cap and protecting consumers by maintaining Florida’s Yacht & Ship Brokers Licensing.
A consummate advocate for buyers & sellers, Jeff loves helping clients achieve “two of the happiest days of a boaters life” and would love to help you achieve yours.
