Born and raised on the intracoastal waterways of Stuart, Florida, also known as the “Sailfish Capitol of the World”, Bobby has been boating his entire life. At the age of 16, he was managing and living aboard a 50’ motor yacht. Knowing his passion for the water would be his career path, Bobby set out on a quest to start his own charter fishing business. Through hard work and perseverance, he was able to purchase his own charter sport fishing boat, The Tidewater, "48 foot pacemaker" at the age of 24. This not only allowed Bobby access to broaden his yachting skills and business experience, it also taught him valuable lessons regarding maintaining boats in Bristol condition and the “tell-tale” signs of a well-maintained boat.
He was eventually recruited into the “big league” of sport fishing and captained both custom and production boats. Competing in the top sport fishing tournaments in the world, running the crew and keeping meticulous servicing records were all aspects of his daily work. During this time, he also had the opportunity to understand another aspect of boating…the build. By working as a conduit between the owner and the builder, Bobby was responsible for making sure that every need was met to perfection. His most recent accomplishments include 2 boat builds of a 70’ and 67’ custom sport fisherman.
From the buyer’s perspective, Bobby knows what to look for and what to avoid. From the seller’s perspective, he knows where there will be added value. He has been honored to work at such an elite level of this profession and honor and integrity have guided me throughout my entire career. Bobby is the father of two beautiful little girls and the husband to a wonderful wife, Janis. In their free time, they spend every minute they can on the open water.
