Lighthouse Point, FL
Raised in the small mining towns of northern Ontario, Derek found his interest for all things ocean watching Mike Nelson on Sea Hunt, the 1950s television series. While backpacking in Europe in 1972, Derek was offered his first position as crew on a pre-war wooden cutter bound for Brazil. This is when the passion came to life. Derek learned navigation and seamanship during this voyage, and his talents have grown exponentially over the years.
By 1986, Derek had owned 2 of his own sailing vessels and spent 12 years cruising the Caribbean and Pacific Islands. Derek then captained sailing yachts up to 80 feet in size both privately owned and by charter and has delivered vessels to all corners of the globe.
He has logged over 175,000 nautical miles and completed 7 trans-Atlantic and 3 trans-Pacific crossings. In 2002 Derek began a new chapter as a yacht broker, working for a local brokerage in Fort Lauderdale. It wasn’t long before Derek’s knowledge and expertise brought him to the forefront as the “go-to guy” for sailing vessels within the firm. Honest, easygoing and knowledgeable are a few of the adjectives previous clients have used to describe Derek. He now hopes to help you achieve the dream he has lived.View Broker (Derek Jarvis)

"Evergreen" Ta Shing Taswell 49
This is a good one and she's ready to sail anywhere. Located Fort Lauderdale. 3 cabins / 6 berths / 2 heads with showers.
Taswell sailing yachts are built by Ta Shing. The first Taswell yacht was launched in 1986 and since then well over 100 have been built in a wide range of sizes from 43 to 72 feet. These beautiful cruising sailboats are widely known for their superb craftsmanship and extraordinary circumnavigation abilities.
The first vessel in Taswell's line of modern, technically advanced performance cruiser series was introduced in 1988. While advancing themselves into the world of state-of-the-art design and technology, the new series still maintained the refined luxury, elegance, and dependability that made them world-famous.
Keep in mind this boat is a proven bluewater boat and is cruise ready. It is USA flagged and is spec'd for 50 Amp 125-250 volts AC power. Centerline aft berth with en suite head/shower. Four bunks forward with head/shower for a total of six berths. You will not find a more capable blue water equipped sailboat at this price.
Apart from keeping the boat cruise ready and super clean, we have meticulously maintained all the systems and continuously upgraded, for example, we just installed new sails among other projects.
