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.

The below deck space of the 42DS is spacious, airy and comfortable. Her interior space is a tasteful combination of rich wood, abundant light, from the portlights and hatches, and upgraded microfiber fabric upholstery. When you enter the salon the forward facing Nav Station is to port with a long bench settee that can convert to a single berth. To starboard is the U shaped dining settee with a drop leaf table, perfect for evening get togethers while onboard. When needed, the dining settee converts to a double berth without dropping the table.
The Owner's cabin aft has a center King berth, en-suite head, opening hatches and portlights with full standing headroom. The forward Guest cabin has a central double-size berth with portlights, ample storage and private access to the forward head.
