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.

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:||Convictus Maximus|
Convictus Maximus is a great Farr Performance 42, she is Farr Design 588. The Performance 42 was designed to be a good all round racer for offshore, windward/leeward, and cruising with friends and family.
On deck she is all business. A carbon fiber mast, twin helm wheels, all controls are led to the cockpit. This particular Performance 42 has been refit to include the addition of a fixed bow sprit for asymmetrical/Code Zero and split back stays to allow for a square top main. She has received great care including a repaint in 2010 that included removal and reinstallation of all deck hardware. Electronics were upgraded in 2012, and she had a Black Widow race bottom applied in 2017.
Below decks she is nicely outfitted for comfortable racing or cruising. A full nav station, three generous cabins, galley, and saloon. Couple this with great headroom and you will see that the Performance 42 is the perfect multi-purpose yacht.
Convictus Maximus is a veteran of Newport - Bermuda, Block Island Race Week, and IRC Championships.
With the right owner she would be a great platform to expand into todays race environment in the ORC classes.

Just add crew and sails and she is ready to go.
