Josh wasn’t quite born into the boat business, but some of his earliest memories are boating with his family on the Illinois River when his father began his selling career. It was only natural that Josh followed the same path as a love for boating soon developed. Starting as early as 14 years old painting boat bottoms to detailing and managing a small dealership inventory in later years; then to his first (and only) sales job at 21 with Grande Yachts, now One Water Yacht Group.
Josh joined Grande Yachts in 2012 just as the industry was recovering and the company was pursuing new boat sales. Gravitating to Chris Craft early on, Josh quickly became very passionate about the brand and helped the company achieve number one dealer in the world multiple years in row while also being the top individual salesmen. A brand management position for Chris Craft soon followed and as the company continued to grow so did Josh’s experience in other products and brands.
In 2019 at the age of 28 Josh was tasked with opening his first store for the company in Palm Beach Gardens as a selling Sales Manager. After quickly growing the team and the companies footprint in the area Josh opened a beautiful new location in downtown West Palm Beach as General Manager in 2021 – the first office to be rebranded as One Water Yacht Group. The location continues to be very successful and more importantly has developed its own culture of positivity and a fun experience for the brokers and the clients. In addition to brokerage they offer Sunseeker, Riviera, Absolute and of course, Chris Craft.
“I truly enjoy every aspect of the yachting industry and the experiences it offers. Having the opportunity to meet with so many incredible clients from all walks of life and provide them assistance and solutions for their boating needs while simultaneously learning so much from them is the greatest job in the world. Building our team in here Palm Beach and helping with negotiations and problem solving is rewarding beyond measure. I look forward to the opportunity for myself or one of our expert team members to help the next client fulfill their yachting dreams!”
