As most marine industry professionals, I was introduced to sailing on a Sunfish when I was a young lad by my brothers, soon progressing to Hobie-Cats and then power boats. I've crewed, owned and captained sailing and power boats from 30 to 160 feet over a thirty year career in the charter industry from Maine to the Caribbean. All this experience has blessed me with a world-wide network of marine professionals that I've found is an immeasurable asset when helping people make well informed, smart decisions to get on the water.


Selling my boat was very stressful, but John and Tom made is very easy. John was very helpful with suggestions, and very positive. I would highly recommend Manatee Pocket Yacht Sales to anyone selling a boat.
