Brian Commette

Yacht Broker

Yacht Broker Brian Commette grew up in the boatbuilding town of Bristol, Rhode Island, where his first paying job was, appropriately, in a boatyard. Family sports included sailing and skiing. With his brothers he campaigned a 23-foot keelboat. The family later cruised New England in a larger wooden yawl. While in college, summers were spent working in a local boatyard. Winters gave an opportunity for competitive skiing with some success. By junior year, Brian was nationally ranked in Nordic competition (cross-country skiing and ski jumping). Following college, the career track defaulted back into boatyards and boatyard management.

He learned a competence with all of the trades: mechanical, fiberglass, rigging and electrical. I was an easy transition into yacht brokerage. During his 25 years in yacht brokerage with Northrop & Johnson, Brian has served as both as board member and president of the Yacht Brokers Association of America (YBAA). He has also worked tirelessly with the Certified Professional Yacht Broker program, serving as Chairman and now in the position of counsel. His professionalism and his knowledge of yachts and their systems has proven to be of great value to his loyal clients.
