Harry Walp

Yacht Broker

Harry was born in Philadelphia, Penn. and grew up in Portland, Conn., and Medford, New Jersey. A graduate of Drexel University with degrees in Commerce & Mechanical Engineering, Harry was recruited into the automobile industry as a Regional Sales Manager for an American automaker and eventually purchased a small new car dealership in southern New Jersey. 

Under Harry’s leadership, new car volume quadrupled in three years, and superior customer satisfaction earned his dealership the Chairman’s Award three years in a row. After selling the dealership, Harry relocated to the Seattle area, where he refocused his career on the yachting industry. A powerboater since age 16, Harry chose to bring his love of the sea, strong organizational skills, and customer empathy to the recreational marine industry.

In 2004, Harry became Sales Manager of a Seattle-area boat dealership, where he earned his Certified Professional Yacht Broker (CPYB) credentials. In 2010 the opportunity to join Grand Banks Northwest, followed by subsequent acquisitions by Stan Miller Yachts and recently Galati Yacht Sales, focused Harry’s attention on the trawler and Downeast cruiser markets, where he specializes today.

A strong proponent of 'giving back to the industry,' Harry served on the Board of Directors of the Northwest Yacht Brokers Association for a decade, was elected its Treasurer for six years, and completed a two-year term as the Association’s President in December 2020.
