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.

Florida LicensedView Broker (Erik Haaland)
Shenanigans is a well cared for 1977 Grand Banks 42 Classic. The GB42 is the base by which all other trawlers and downeast cruisers are measured against. These popular yachts boast high quality construction, layout, and comfort. There's a reason why these yachts were built for over 30 years with more than 1,500 hulls built.
Shenanigans is no exception. Her owners have kept her in good shape cosmetically and mechanically. She has newer canvas, newer electronics, newer fuel tanks, and a newer genset. Her exterior teak trim was just varnished and she is getting a full spring detail.
If you're in the market for a GB42 to do the Loop, cruise to the islands, or just explore the Chesapeake, then make sure to come see Shenanigans before she's gone!
Electronics and Navigation
Shenanigans is equipped with a forward V-berth, and aft cabin with port and starboard berths. Both heads are equipped with newer electro scan Lectra/San MSD devices.
