Jay was brought up in Richmond, Virginia, spending most summers cruising and fishing on the lower Chesapeake Bay and Virginia Beach. He received a business degree from Tulane University in 1975 and enjoyed a successful 20-year career in the apparel industry in Virginia and New York. In 1995, he relocated to South Florida, joining the team at Gilman Yachts as a broker. His first listing and sale was an 86’ Burger (no one told him that’s not supposed to happen).

Since then, Jay has traveled practically around the world to provide his clients the expertise and product knowledge essential to making informed, “market wise” decisions. That, coupled with his dedication to service before and after the sale, has brought Jay unparalleled success and referrals.

From 1999 thru 2008, Jay was the leading new yacht salesman in the United States for Horizon Yachts. During that time, he made numerous trips to the Horizon shipyard in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, overseeing various custom projects from 70’ to 130'.

Most recently, Jay has joined the team at Denison Yachting in their location at Soverel Harbour Marina in Palm Beach Gardens. Denison is one of the fastest growing yacht sales organizations in the world, providing their clients 21st century marketing strategies unmatched in the yachting industry.

Whether buying or selling, Jay Rhoades is ready to provide his expertise and the service you deserve for all of your yachting needs.
