With more than 30 years in the yachting industry, Yacht Broker Bob Fritsky brings a wide range of hard-won experience to every yacht transaction. Previously a yacht importer and dealer and the former CEO of Ferretti Group USA, and with more than a decade as VP of Sales at MarineMax, Bob has built and delivered dozens of over-100-foot yachts.
One would think that after 30 years, a person would have seen everything, but the yacht business continues to surprise and inform Bob, who believes even the most difficult transactional waters can be navigated safely with trusting relationships, and comprehensive communications. Many clients have built and bought multiple yachts with Bob as their trusted advisor. He actively networks his clients together, so they can share their knowledge and ideas to everyone's benefit.
Bob built and sold four businesses before buying a yacht and catching a passion for all things maritime. His resultant strong business and contract law sensibilities often inform his yachting transactions. An experienced European traveler, Bob enjoys bringing clients not only to visit European shipyards but also to appreciate the cuisine, culture and history surrounding the shipyards. In addition, throughout the years, Bob has developed a trusted coterie of surveyors, technicians, yacht managers, charter brokers, and many other highly skilled specialists, always available when required.
"My job is to provide an uber-luxury experience while you build, buy or sell a mega-yacht. I find each transaction is a mixture of psychology, education, hard numbers, soft numbers, a pinch of poker, and a dash of alchemy. It is a magical experience to help my clients achieve their dreams, and I assemble an impressive team to help me make it happen." says Bob. "In a business where we can be looking at eight-digit pricing, be assured I am available to all my clients 24 hours a day, wherever the continent, and whatever the season".
