Biography

ABOUT JEFF

Jeff is an accomplished yacht broker with 30-plus years of experience. Known for his integrity and knowledge, he served on the Florida Yacht Brokers Association board of directors as chair of the Public Affairs Committee for more than a decade, advocating to protect and grow the marine industry. Under Jeff’s leadership, FYBA accomplished the following milestones:

• Doubled the 90-day sales tax exemption to 180 days
• Passed legislation capping Florida’s sales tax on boats at $18,000
• Defended repeal of Florida’s Yacht & Ship Brokers Act to protect consumers
• Developed the "Deferred Importation" initiative for foreign flagged boats

His in-depth understanding of U.S. + Florida regulations – specifically tax laws that affect yachting – is invaluable to his clients and peers alike. After touring multiple shipyards, Jeff has a strong sense of yacht design, materials, techniques, and construction. Southern Boating Magazine once called him “one of Florida’s leading marine industry advocates” and “one of the top yacht brokers in the USA.”

Hooked on boating at age 7, Jeff has a treasure trove of industry experience. With thousands of sea miles under his keel, he offers customers a wealth of resources. Two significant adventures on the water he recalls include a 35-day, 30,000-mile circumnavigation as well as a non-stop, 2500nm sailboat race from San Francisco to Hawaii.

A consummate advocate for buyers and sellers, Jeff loves helping clients achieve “two of the happiest days of a boater’s life” and would love to help you achieve yours today.
