Erik has been involved in the marine industry for over a decade. He started his brokerage career with Martin Bird & Associates in Annapolis in 2014. Prior to that he was a successful Store Manager with West Marine, winning many top accolades including multiple District Store of the Year awards. Erik was born in New York where he learned to sail at a young age on the Hudson River. In the mid-1990's his family moved to Annapolis, where his fondness of the Chesapeake grew by being involved in sailboat racing, fishing, and other water related activities.
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.

|Yacht Name:||Suits Us Too|
SUITS US TOO is a clean and well maintained Tiara 3500 Express. She has been pampered for her entire life; covered storage by her first owner, and lift kept for the past 10 years by her second and current owner. Canvas is three years old and in excellent condition. Cushions are in good condition. She is mechanically sound and clean.
The 3500 Express is a top-tier cruiser with luxury-class accommodations and an oversized cockpit. She?s heavily built on a modified-V hull with a solid fiberglass bottom, prop pockets, and a wide 13'9" beam. The interior is huge for a 35-footer thanks to her super-wide beam. The big lounge next to the cockpit steps can be converted into a private stateroom at night. A removable pedestal seat allows the dinette to seat five, and can also be converted into another bed.
She is powered by the optional Crusader 502 XL big block V8 engines, producing 380 shaft horsepower. This enables a 20 knot cruise and top out in the mid 20's. Engine manifolds/risers serviced five years ago.
For its equipment and size you will not find a more perfect yacht for having fun on the Chesapeake.
