As one of the newest members of the East Coast Yacht Sales team, Robert brings a client-first outlook and a consultative approach to yacht brokerage after a 30+ year career in corporate real estate. Working with Kevin McGettigan in the new NY/NJ regional office, Robert is a long-time resident of the Bayshore area and a member of Atlantic Highlands Yacht Club.
Robert’s 40 years of boating experience spans both sailing and powerboating. A former sailing instructor and professional yacht captain, he has owned, chartered, or delivered dozens of sailing and motor yachts. He captained two Newport-Bermuda Races (with return trips) on his own 42-foot sailboat and served as Navigator for a third NBR Race. He has knowledge about boats, systems, and equipment, and this helps sellers and buyers with pricing evaluations. Robert applies his long experience to help clients market their boat effectively or find the right boat at the right price.
His education includes a BSc in Business from Vanderbilt University and a graduate degree from Thunderbird. He holds a US Coast Guard 50-Ton Master License with Sailing Endorsement. In his free time, Robert and his wife Corinna enjoy visiting their daughter in Florida, sailing their J/42 Lucy Belle, scuba diving and snow skiing. He also enjoys sailing small boats including windsurfers, catamarans, and foiling wing boards.
Robert looks forward to getting on the water with you and sharing his passion for boating.
