Bill brings decades of experience in the boating world having owned his first boat at age 6, and building one at 13. His long career spans from charter boat captain, professional and private sport fishing yacht captain, commercial fisherman, crabber, salvage and underwater repair diver. He has performed custom tower and other designs for vessels that he has captained. Bill managed Virginia Beach Fishing Center for 4 years, and built the new floating docks there. His career in boat sales began in 1971 at a marine dealership in Virginia Beach, which he later acquired, operated and expanded to a full line outdoor sporting center, gun & tackle shop until 1998.
His experience in the yachting industry includes sales manager for new lines such as Silverton, Riviera, Sabre, Back Cove, & Hunt Yachts, as well as owner of full line yacht brokerage, and yacht management services. “I feel my clients are the kind of discerning individuals who know exactly what they want, and do not need to be sold. Sometimes that may be just a vision in mind that needs only to be focused on that which is real. I have a keen awareness that your boat is a large part of your life style.”
