Posted by Gregory T. DuBose — April 18, 2016
JUPITER, FL - Waterfront Yacht Brokerage (“Waterfront Yacht”) today announced three new additions to its strategically growing team of brokers. Bill Lutch, Rick Meyers and William (“Eddie”) Winbrow each bring extensive marine industry experience to sellers and buyers of sport fishing boats, motor yachts and powerboats in Florida and the Bahamas. Co-founded in 2015 by Rob Thomson, Managing Partner of Waterfront Properties and Club Communities, Waterfront Yacht is the first local yacht brokerage to operate as a sister company to a luxury real estate company. The tandem offers a distinct advantage, each bringing the other an inherently qualified and vested prospective customer base.
Rob Thomson comments, “Two things separate Waterfront Yacht. Exposure for our clients’ vessels is unmatched. Our websites deliver 100,000 unique visitors a month. The second thing separating our team is our people.” He continued, “When Joe Kelly and I formed the brokerage, we didn’t set out to employ sales people. We wanted professionals who truly understand boats, boat buying and boat ownership.”
For more than 30 years, Bill Lutch has owned charter boat businesses in Florida, Pennsylvania and Maryland. A certified engines specialist, Bill brings hands-on experience in many brands, including MAN, Caterpillar and Cummings. “I have owned and still own many boats. I understand the cost of ownership and the value of well-maintained engine rooms, electrical systems and overall condition of vessels of all types.”
Rick Meyers is a licensed captain and yacht management business owner. Having spent more than 25 years working on a variety of privately owned boats ranging in size from 17 to 170 feet, he comes to Waterfront Yacht excited about the focus on knowledge and service. “Waterfront looks at the owner’s real and long term needs for a vessel. For us, putting clients on the right boat is everything.”
Eddie Winbrow brings 30 years of experience as a full-time and freelance professional sport-fishing captain in South Florida. For the past 16 years he has successfully run a freelance captaining and boat oversight business, Prosportishing. Waterfront Yacht co-founder Joe Kelly comments, “Eddie’s broad technical and practical knowledge of boating, combined with decades-long commitment to honesty and integrity are a perfect fit for our company.”
