The professional sales staff at Brewer Yacht Sales Warwick are committed to making your boat buying or selling experience an enjoyable one! Our Brewer Yacht Sales brokers have on average twenty years of boating industry experience, and it is their job to make your transaction smooth and worry-free. We want to build long-term relationships with our customers, whether you are transitioning out of your current boat or into your next one.
I have spent most of my life on and around boats beginning as a young child, learning to sail Sunfish and Hobie Cats, driving on my Dad’s lap in a classic mahogany lake boat, and cruising the Jersey shore with my parents and brothers aboard our 36ft Chris Craft. After moving to New England I continued to seek the boating life with my own family and owned a variety of sail and power boats that brought me cherished times with friends and family.
Drawing on my experiences over the past 25 years developing and selling theme park and water park attractions across the globe as well as my background as a Psychologist, I decided to pursue my lifelong passion to work in the marine industry. Being a customer of Brewer Yacht Sales over the years, I have seen the professionalism and quality of the team and am happy to join them as a broker.
In addition to being an avid and experienced boater, I am a careful listener and an astute negotiator- both skills that I look forward to putting to work to help my clients find and secure the perfect boat for their needs and lifestyle, or sell when it comes time.
