He has owned multiple boats of various size over the years, lived aboard a classic 1968 Hatteras 50’ motor yacht for over 5-years, operated small charter vessels and spent thousands of days on the water.
Now Marcus is putting his love of the water, passion for boating, and his Engineering and Captain experience into helping others realize their passion for boating and love of the water too! Whether you are selling your boat, a first-time buyer, or looking to upgrade to your next dream yacht, Marcus puts his 30+ years of experience to work for you and provides guidance every step of the way.
