Fort Lauderdale, 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)

Designed by Sparkman & Stephens and built by Concordia Custom Yachts, Cavu is sloop rigged with in-mast furling and optional cutter rig. The design features a very nice center cockpit allowing for a generous owner's stateroom aft with a Pullman double forward complete with its own head and shower stall.
Being a custom build, the quality of the joinery work, done in teak, is outstanding!
Cavu had a major refit with numerous upgrades to all the systems onboard in 2013-4. These included sails (since replaced in 9/19), solar, windlass, electronics, safety, bottom, refrigeration, air conditioning, soft goods, lighting and so much more. After a year-long refit, the owner headed out to the Bahamas, Turks and Caicos Virgin Islands and down the chain to Grenada. He cruised up and down the chain for five years until health issues forced him to call Mount Hartman Bay, Grenada, home. His health issues worsened and earlier this year he passed away in hospital in Grenada and the boat was brought to Ft Lauderdale to sell.
I have sailed numerous times on Cavu and found her to be terrific under sail and beautiful at anchor.
She is located in the heart of Ft Lauderdale and easy to show.
