To further is career as a yacht broker Erik attended continuing education training and was granted certification as a Certified Professional Yacht Broker in 2017. His drive to ensure his clients needs are met is paramount. Erik believes that his job is never done with any client, and that the personal assistance he provides clients, some years after they make their purchase, is what sets him apart from other brokers in the industry. Erik is known to be very personable and easily explains different vessels and their systems, making it a pleasant experience for both buyers and sellers as they not only get to know their boat better, but understand how to remedy issues along the way. He has a wide breath of yacht sales experience, from blue water yachts to center console fishing boats, picnic boats, sport fishers, racing sailboats, trawlers and motor yachts.
When Erik is not showing boats you can find him on the Bay on his Scout center console or being involved in the sailboat races out of Annapolis and around the East Coast.

The Boston Whaler 21 Ventura is a versatile runabout that's perfect for both skiing and fishing. Her broad-beamed, dual console, open bow design allows for plenty room and comfort. With a large bow area, comfortable helm and companion seating, and aft seats, there's plenty of room for everyone. Spacious walk-through windshields can be secured to provide weather protection in colder climates. Storage can be found under the bow seats, in the consoles, and in the stern. Options include under-gunnel storage for rods or skis, a livewell, a trolling motor panel, a fishing seat, a ski pylon, a Bimini top, and stainless steel handrails. Unibond construction makes the 21 Ventura virtually unsinkable. Decks with superfine, nonskid, micro-pyramid surfaces provide excellent footing even when wet. A higher freeboard, combined with the Accutrack hull's reversed chines and spray rails, gives this boat a dry, comfortable ride. The deep-V slices through chop and waves smoothly, while the running strakes get her up on plane fast and improve fuel economy. Fiberglass, stainless steel, and marine-grade vinyl construction make cleanup easy and quick.
