Seattle-based yacht broker Bill Mark cruised and lived aboard his Defever 54 for more than 18 years. His interest and love of boating began when he learned to sail on Class-A dinghies and aboard other sailboats while serving in the Navy. After an honorable discharge in 1974, he moved to the Northwest, immediately buying a Hobie 16 and crewing on larger sailboats.

After a few years, he moved up to a Pearson 24 sloop and then to a Northwest 38 sloop. In 1999, he purchased his Defever 54, gaining invaluable experience with the care and operation of larger vessels.

The last 12 years of his employment with the Department of the Navy found him working on various sized boats around the world, including the Arctic and special tasks for the Department of Defense (DOD). 

After retiring in 1997, he worked at various marine suppliers before starting his career as a yacht broker. Bill has belonged to various yachting clubs including “Trawler Crawlers” and “Defever Cruisers.” He is also currently a member of Brownsville Yacht Club. 

His enthusiasm and in-depth knowledge of sailboats, Trawlers and the live-aboard lifestyle allows him to offer great advice during the buying and selling process for both new and experienced boaters.
