• Wayne Smith

  • Yacht Broker

Wayne was born and raised on New York’s Long Island where his love affair with boats began.  He was given his first boat at age 5; since then, he has never been without one.   Wayne had a successful career in book publishing, working for a number of well-known companies in senior management positions and as a CEO.  Seven years ago, Wayne moved to North Carolina, where he embarked on a second career as a yacht broker.  He enjoys getting to know his clients, many of whom remain in contact with him.   Wayne is a member of the Marine Trawler Owners Association (MTOA) as well as the American Great Loop Cruisers Association (AGLCA).

When he can, Wayne enjoys getting out on his own boat – a 31’ Camano Troll – and spending time with his family.  Wayne is married, with two daughters and a granddaughter.  Wayne has helped clients all over North Carolina but has also brokered successful transactions as far north as Rhode Island and as far south as Florida.  Wayne really enjoys helping clients make their dreams come true – call him anytime!
