President & Founder

In January 2003 I founded Temptation Yacht Sales, (which later was incorporated as Temptation Yacht Sales, Inc.) and registered the domain www.temptationyachtsales.com

 

My exclusive professional focus since 2003, Temptation Yacht Sales, Inc., business plan focused on formation of a yacht brokerage with a strong deviation from the industry standard pertaining to contractual terms, fee structure, inventory selection, and strict customer service goals.  Additionally it was my objective to incorporate the vast online / technical resources available then with a commitment to continuous improvement to ensure we offer the best platform to buy or sell your next boat

 

My exposure to the marine industry (professionally) began in 1997 with a marine services start-up specializing in maintenance programs for 18’-50’ + vessels located in Southeast Michigan.

 

Born and raised in South Eastern Michigan I’ve been boating my entire life and am focused on and dedicated to promoting the boating lifestyle.  Today my Wife Kelly and I along with our two Children (Lyndon & Ivanka) enjoy boating on Lake St. Clair and surrounding waterways.

 

I’m committed to the future growth and success of this company.  I’m passionate about what I’m doing and am proud to say I still absolutely love what I’m so fortunate to do every day!

The boat buying process can be time consuming and frankly not the best use of our clients’ time. Whether you would prefer to be enjoying leisure activities, watching your children’s activities or engaging in business pursuits you do have a choice in how you spend your free time.  A solution is to delegate the responsibilities to someone that is in the industry that can save you time, aggravation and money.  I am your “personal boat shopper” for hire, by offering assistance in locating the right boat, vetting the boats by obtaining background information and requesting additional information, travel to the boat for an advance viewing and inspection by me before you see the boat, conducting a market analysis to assist in establishing value, handling the negotiations and preparing the contract that works best for you with the terms that work for you to protect your interests.  I can assist in multiple facets of the boat buying process: obtaining a marine survey, transportation, and financing, locating local skilled tradesman if the boat needs work.  I started using this approach for clients who were remote and couldn’t break away from their employment obligations or travel arrangements were cost prohibitive.  Would you like to have someone working for you to eliminate the negatives of boat buying?  Most of us hire real estate agents to help find their dream home, why wouldn’t you hire someone the find your dreamboat?  I can offer you objective assistance in locating your next boat, gathering information, working for you to negotiate the right deal and give you your time back.  All included in our brokerage fee, extra charges may apply for travel and other expenses.  I welcome your inquiry.

 

Customer service and referrals are a large part of our business.  Ideally I would like to assist you in your boating lifestyle whether you are a first time boat buyer, looking to fulfill your retirement dream or somewhere in-between, on the water enjoying the experience.

I have grown up in a multi-generation boating family; as far back as I can remember I’ve been boating. The first boat I remember was my Father’s old 35’ wood Chris Craft Sea Skiff with a blue hull and its name was “Rum Runner”.  I spent my summers as a child boating with my parents and traveling the Great Lakes. I have continued that tradition with my family as well. I’ve moved up through 3 boats myself and spending our summers on the Great Lakes is a way of life.

 

I have a deep background in strong customer service. As a Commercial Account Executive dealing with Fortune 100 Companies, I understand what it takes to know what our Client’s need’s are, and to meet and exceed their expectations. My mission, for our Clients, is to be a step ahead and to make their experience with Temptation Yacht Sales one they’ll always remember and pass on to others so they can experience the Temptation Yacht Sales difference.
