Jeroen grew up in the Netherlands as part of a true boating family; for his family boating is a way of life. Jeroen’s family migrated to the U.S. back in 1980, where they have been building sport fishing yachts since 1993 under the name Garlington Landeweer. A Dutch family constructing traditional sport fishing yachts was not something that was typical for this industry.
Jeroen could not wait to step in those same footsteps, so after years of growing up spending his summer breaks on both a sport-fishing yacht in Florida & the Bahamas and a sailboat in the Mediterranean (Sardinia, Corsica, France, Italy, & Ballearics), Jeroen co-founded together with three of his family members, Chaser Yachts, where they specialize in building high-performance luxurious Dutch dayboats ranging about 50 feet.
After moving to the U.S. to grow the business stateside, Jeroen realized that a combination of representing the Chaser Yachts brand and brokering yachts was not just a perfect mix for him but added tremendous value to his clients through his expertise as not just a manufacturer of yachts but providing business to his resources in the industry as a broker too.
