John Negele grew up in a Navy family and spent many years living overseas including Morocco, Hawaii, Guam and Washington DC. John says, “Water has always been in my life and my blood; I started a career in the boat industry back in 1984 and had positions from boat sales to GM.” Currently John is enjoying his flexible time that allows him to apply boat brokerage, captain charter service skills and dabble with a lifelong passion for playing occasional music gigs at local areas. He says, “I also enjoy spending time with family and friends on my Whaler, Half Pint and my new rescue Golden Retriever, named Jenny”. John loves living in Sarasota, and holds a 100 ton USCG and a private pilot license. He enjoys helping new boaters learn how to be safe and have fun!
