Contact Sean

Sean has been involved with boats, sales, and the marine industry almost his entire life.

Sean spent his earlier years on St. Thomas and St. John, where he learned basic seamanship aboard a Pearson Renegade. Upon moving to Sarasota, Florida, he cruised and raced on a 27’ Starwind. After graduation, he started his sales career as a stockbroker and later joined the US Navy as an Electronics Technician stationed in Yokosuka, Japan, for five years. Deployments from Japan took him to ports of call all around the Pacific Rim with some of the best scuba diving spots from the southern tip of Australia up through Bali, Guam, Indonesia, Hong Kong, and Russia.

After leaving the US Navy in 1998, he returned to sales as a Realtor and Mortgage Loan Officer and eventually yacht sales. He established the importance of transparency and education to help customers make well-informed and knowledgeable decisions when buying or selling a boat. He currently calls Jacksonville, Florida, his home port, while doing charters and deliveries on the eastern seaboard.
