JMYS is pleased to introduce our newest broker to the team, Eric Bescoby!

Eric started his boating education at 6 years old when his family of 8 bought a 16’ Glaspar with a 75hp Evinrude outboard at Lake Havasu where he spent every summer until he graduated college. His Dad bought a newer, larger boat every few years and Eric grew into the role of maintenance man for the family boats.

Eric’s first “big’ purchase was a Hobie Cat to go racing and he eventually qualified for the Hobie 14 Nationals at Lake Tahoe. He continued to race with his wife for over 10 years and won his final race on a Hobie 17’. After raising 3 kids, Eric bought a “dream” boat of the era, a 24’ Campbell Cuddy cabin day cruiser with a 330hp Mercruiser I/O at Lake Havasu and started teaching his kids to water ski and fish.

After a 30 year career of successive promotions in manufacturing management with a Masters of Business Administration, Eric became Chief Executive Office for manufacturing companies acquired by Private Equity firms for turn-around and eventual sale. It was at the end of his career when he was introduced to the trawler Bible – “Voyaging Under Power”.

After regularly showing his Nordhavn 40 Sprezzatura to interested boaters in marinas and anchorages from Alaska to Maine, Eric met with Jeff Merrill to discuss joining him to assist buyers and sellers of trawlers and share his knowledge and experience of trawler features, cruising, live-aboard life and places to explore.

Eric is a California Licensed Yacht Salesperson, a member of Californian Yacht Brokers Association and the Offshore Cruising Club. He is located in California, and can help with any of your trawler needs.
