Over the years, Gary has been involved in delivering boats up and down the East Coast and Gulf of Mexico while pursuing a career as a management consultant. For 30 years, he, his wife and daughter enjoyed cruising and racing sailboats on the Chesapeake Bay from Annapolis to Norfolk.
In 2003, he got his 100-ton master’s license and worked as a tow captain for TowBoatUS and operated a tour boat on the Potomac River near Washington DC.After leaving his career as a management consultant, he returned to yacht brokerage with Richard Bertram Yachts in Tampa. He now represents Fillingham Yacht Sales in St. Petersburg.
As an owner of a restored, Bertram 20 Bahia Mar and a Bertram 38 convertible, it’s safe to say, he knows his way around a Bertram.
“Gary recently found a cruising yacht for our family after we searched over a year. Gary handled the transaction between the parties efficiently and kept us informed of progress throughout.” – Mike Pilkington
“Gary recently helped us to purchase a sport fishing boat in Florida. It sold within the timeframe that Gary had provided for us. We found Gary to be very professional and helpful and I would not hesitate in recommending him. We believe that he was totally committed to achieving a good outcome for us and we’re very pleased with his performance.” – Emily & Mark Jonston
