Jim has owned a big boat all of his adult life. He bought his first, a 1969 35’ Chris Craft Tournament Sport fish, in 1979 in Port Isabel Texas. He has owned three Chris Crafts to 50’, four Hatteras yachts to 58’ and an assortment of others all over the Gulf Coast, Northwest and Florida. He jokes, the reason he knows so much about power boats is because he could never afford a mechanic as all the money was spent on the boats themselves.

Jim is a licensed bonded Florida Yacht broker and holds a USCG 100 ton master license. He has cruised the waters of the West Coast from Ketchikan, Alaska to Cabo San Lucas and the Sea of Cortez, the East Coast from Kittery, Maine to Trinidad, the Gulf Coast as a competitive sport fisher from the Florida Keys to Brownsville, Texas and even took a 60’ Viking up the waterways of the Mississippi River to Minneapolis Minnesota. He spent the summer of 2014 cruising the Great Lakes as captain of “Independence” a 70’ Burger Yacht he sold to a now friend.

Jim opened “Yacht Doc” of Kirkland, Washington in 1989 and has been a yacht broker ever since. He brings a wealth of knowledge to HMY and can lead the way in finding you that perfect powerboat of your dreams.
