Gage began his life-long love of sailing during his college years at his hometown University of Houston. He spent summers sailing an 85ft Alden schooner from Houston to New York. Upon graduation from college he served in the U.S. Navy as a line officer, completing his duty in Viet Nam in 1971. Shortly after release from naval service he moved to Florida, and began a career in yacht brokerage. Always appreciating classic lines and fine performance of traditional sailing vessels, and admiring well-executed joinery in any vessel, he moved comfortably to residential construction, specializing in well-executed high end finishes in wood. Beautiful boats, and sailing them proficiently always in his heart, he returned to yacht brokerage in 1991.
Gage actively searches worldwide for vessels to meet his client's needs. His commitment to thoroughly understanding a client's desires has provided him with a list of satisfied vessel owners who return to him time after time.View Broker (Gage Powell)
