Born and raised in Maryland, Greg was very fortunate to have grown up in a boating family. His orientation and interest in boats started early on aboard his family’s vessels while cruising the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. By age 12, Greg’s interest and desire to be around or on the water had become a passion. Always interested in different makes and models of vessels, he was becoming a book of knowledge. He helped find and purchase the families next vessel, a 44’ Pacemaker Motor Yacht, in 1972. Having already completed multiple Power Squadron courses, he was known to typically be at the helm of the 44’ Pacemaker when she was under way.

Greg has bought and sold boats most of his life. He is very knowledgeable of the boating market place and works daily to stay current with the most up to date information in the yachting industry. His knowledge and understanding of the yachting industry, both the type of boat and how their systems function, helps him to identify boats that are suitable and the right match for his client’s needs. Additionally, he has developed a vast network of maritime service professionals in all areas to offer his clients full yacht management services prior to, during and after the sale.

Greg believes that identifying the right yacht is only the beginning of the relationship that you build with your clients. His willingness to continue to provide advice and support over the years have established repeat business and the invaluable word of mouth referrals that he has built his business on.

Whether buying or selling a yacht, working with Greg will be a positive and rewarding experience. He was excited to bring his professional consultative selling, organization and service skills to United Yacht Sales over 10 years ago. His integrity, knowledge and passion for boating have made it possible for him to develop the necessary processes and methodologies to be successful in today’s competitive market place. Looking forward to getting you aboard and Earning Your Trust ....... One Boat At A Time!
