Dan started boating very young. He grew-up here in Annapolis sailing with his family, and with the AYC Junior Fleet. Over the years, he and his family have owned many boats, both sail and power. He started his career in the marine industry in high school as a dock boy with Yacht Basin Company in downtown Annapolis Harbor. In 1980 his family purchased York River Yacht Haven in Gloucester Point, Virginia and moved to the Southern Chesapeake. For 34 years Dan was active in all aspects of the 315 slip full service marina. He had many different responsibilities over the years including; General Manager/President, Boatyard/Service Manager, Yacht Broker/Vice President – Commonwealth Yachts and Ships Store Manager. The family sold the marina in the fall of 2013. Dan has chosen to come back to Annapolis and pursue his favorite niche in the Boating Industry, working as a Yacht Broker. He brings with him a wealth of technical and performance knowledge in both sail and power boats. A boat is a very personal item. Finding the “right boat” is an art as well as a science. For Dan, it has become second nature after many years of experience and a true love for boating.
