Ocean City, Maryland
Chuck grew up cruising on the Chesapeake Bay developing a passion for being on the water at a very young age. Chuck acquired his Coast Guard Masters license at age twenty and after graduating Cum Laude from Catholic University of America, he made the decision to turn his passion for yachting into a full time career. In 1994 he went to work managing a large marina and boatyard on the Potomac furthering his skills in both maritime management and the yacht service fields.
In 1997, Chuck completed an Advanced Propulsion Course with Propeller Dynamics in Australia and moved to Ft. Lauderdale to start a propeller design and repair shop. Although Chuck loved the business and boating lifestyle of South Florida, in 1999 he returned to the Chesapeake Bay to be closer to his family. Upon his return, Chuck started a career in yacht brokerage and has since established a loyal base of clients who have entrusted him with the sale and purchases of their vessels. Chuck joined Jarrett Bay Yachts with the opening of their Maryland office in 2005 after working for several years with two other national yacht brokerages. He has since completed certifications with Viking, Princess, Regulator, Hatteras, Cabo, Cruisers Yachts and Grand Banks Yachts becoming an expert in both new and used models of these high quality brands. Chuck has made multiple trips to all of these manufacturer’s facilities including several trips to the Grand Banks factory in Malaysia as well as the Princess Yachts factory in Plymouth, England. Chuck is a licensed Florida Yacht Broker and successfully represents high quality listings from the Keys to Maine and has a proven track record including receiving the Top Overall Broker sales award for Bluewater in 2014, his third time receiving this honor and the Top Gun Award for a record number of closings in a single year in 2015.
When not busy selling boats (something he does on an almost 24/7 basis if you ask anyone that knows him and his trusty cell phone!) Chuck enjoys captaining yachts for several of his clients as well as taking his own family out on the water. Chuck is a proud father of three and is also a competitive runner and cyclist that enjoys participating in adventure racing, triathlons, and other distance and strength events.
Chuck is always eager to help new and existing customers and is involved in all aspects prior to, during and after the sale. Chuck believes the most rewarding part of his business is the friendships he has made over the years with his clients. He prides himself on the amount of referrals received and the number or repeat clients he is honored to serve. It truly is the highest compliment a customer can pay him in his opinion!
