Following their ambitions to live on the water, Rob and his wife Deanna sold their Colorado mountain home and bought their first boat – a Selene 55 Ocean Trawler from Jeff Merrill in 2017.
After moving aboard, they explored the Channel Islands of Southern California and also ran a luxury yacht charter business onboard their trawler.
In 2018, Rob became a licensed California Yacht and Ship Salesperson and joined the JMYS team to share his love of the sea and firsthand knowledge of trawlers with others.
Rob’s passion is helping first time trawler buyers with finding their dream boat. In the recent years, he has helped buyers from coast to coast in successful transactions involving brands like Selene 57, Kadey-Krogen 48, Nordhavn 63 and many others. As a trawler owner-operator, Rob is uniquely qualified to help perspective buyers.
