Yacht Sales - become a client for life
Licensed Florida Yacht Broker - Captain Eric A. Gervais - Bio
In his early years, Eric developed a strong love and respect for yachting, having explored many rivers, lakes and oceans while growing up in Coastal New England. During High School, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps (delayed entry program) to serve his country and further explore the world. Earning a meritorious promotion early in his career, he seized the opportunity for extensive travel abroad on the Marine Security Guard Program (a “joint venture” between the Marine Corps and U.S. State Department that provides special operations and internal security at American Embassies and other locations abroad). With extended tours in Japan, Denmark and El Salvador, he has traveled to over 30 foreign countries giving him some unique and very well-rounded skill sets.
After college, he worked as a Stockbroker before following his childhood dreams of purchasing his own businesses in the yachting industry. As the owner of Coastal Yacht Services and Coastal Yacht Maintenance, Eric has really enjoyed going back to his “Yachting Roots”. He was asked to join “Team Marlow Marine” in 2011 and has become a First Class Yacht Broker with a client for life approach and exceptional knowledge in many areas. Having logged untold nautical miles aboard various yachts over the years working as a delivery Captain with his Yacht Service and Yacht Maintenance companies, Captain Eric has an exceptional understanding of the numerous differences between Yachts (ride characteristics, quality of construction and fit/finish just to name a few). Since 2011 he has been able to log thousands of nautical miles aboard many different Marlow Explorers (ranging in size from 49’-97 ‘) and therefore knows from firsthand experience, the additional features and benefits of a well thought out and quality built yacht. He is one of a select few Captains that operates Marlow Explorers for new boat off-loads, boat shows and during the client delivery and yacht orientation process. You will be hard pressed to find a better candidate to assist you with your Yachting needs.
