Josh grew up sailing the shores of the Great Lakes. His experience includes cruising and racing, ownership of mid-size C&C Yachts, and chartering monohulls and catamarans in the Caribbean. After earning his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering he became a Captain in the United States Air Force, serving eight years as a special operations navigator with eight combat deployments.
During his later years in the Air Force, he began his maritime career on a part-time basis. This included operating a successful internet based marine supply business. During his early years in yacht brokerage, he built an impressive and diverse group of listings of power and sailing yachts and cultivated a loyal client base.
After completing his time in the Air Force Josh moved to Florida to pursue his true passion; a full-time career in yacht sales. He is currently a licensed and bonded Florida yacht broker at David Walters Yachts. Josh blends his professionalism, sailing experience, and focus on his client's needs to help both buyers and sellers navigate the waters of the boating market. His clients value his dedication and commitment to providing quality brokerage services with results.
Just wanted to take the opportunity to pass on my deep appreciation for a job well done. I know Ohana was a tough boat to sell and though I tried to keep her maintained as best I could from a distance, I believe all the attention to detail that you and Stuart brought to bear had much to do with her finding a new owner. I'm sure the new owner will have many wonderful adventures with her...and yes, it is bittersweet, but I'd rather see her on the water and doing what she was built for!
I did enjoy working with you and your "can do" attitude. In many ways, it was a good match since I'm the same way. When you have a job to do, you do whatever it takes to get it done and done right. As an old CMSGT once told me many, MANY years ago... "Just stay out of my way, boy, and you'll be amazed at the results."

Josh Mclean bends over backward to satisfy both the buyer and the seller. He went out of his way to resolve issues with his own hands, on his free time, despite a pregnant wife waiting for him at home with a warm cooked meal because the buyer requested it. He is also a competent captain and knowledgeable pertaining yachts, navigation, repairs, financing and much more. You wouldn't regret giving him the opportunity to serve you.
