Jim started boating with his father aboard a bull-nosed 36 foot Chris Craft, frequently venturing to BC to play chess with “Mac” at Princess Louisa Inlet. In the early 80’s he successfully brokered yachts on Lake Union. Jim has cruised and flown the waters of Puget Sound, British Columbia and Alaska extensively, first as a commercial float plane pilot and then as a captain for a major airline, both Seattle based. Jim’s reputation and commitment to “always exceed customers’ expectations” garnered service awards throughout his career. He is a lifelong boat owner enjoying exploring remote regions and is an avid sports fisherman. Jim returns to the yacht brokerage industry in Portland, Oregon with an expansive knowledge of boats applying the same unwavering approach to detail and customer service whether you are buying or selling.
