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.


Josh helped me buy and sell the boat. He's been a true friend and confidante all through the process.

- Mike McShea - Seller of Hylas 54

Josh went above and beyond the call of duty to help sell our yacht, flying out to the Great Lakes to take pictures and help me deliver her to a marina. He was attentive when it counted and gave sound advice along the way! We are very pleased with our result and his service!

- Taylor Davis - Seller of Shannon 43

In a word "Terrific". 

- Frank Davenport - Seller of Hylas 49

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."

- Mike Miravalle- Seller of Shannon 53 HPS

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.

- Pierre Holstein - Seller of Island Packet 31 Charity

With 27 hulls built, Slainte is among the last delivered as Hull Number 26.</p> <p>Designed with the signature lines and performance put forth by renowned Naval Architect German Frers and constructed by Queen Long Marine, the exclusive builder of Hylas Yachts, known for their legendary craftsmanship, stout construction, and elegant interior finishings.</p> <p>Final commissioning was completed in November of 2018. Since then, Slainte has enjoyed extensive cruising throughout the Northwestern Atlantic. Commissioned by an experienced sailor, Slainte was designed to meet the needs that were lacking in their previously owned vessels, making her perfect for summer family cruises in Long Island Sound to Montauk and Block Island, onward to Newport, cruising the Vineyard and Nantucket Sounds as well as offshore passages to Bermuda, BVI&rsquo;s, Bahamas and up and down the Atlantic coast.</p> <p>No expense has ever been spared with regards to upkeep and upgrades. As with any fine yacht, Slainte&rsquo;s program has always emphasized safety first, which has been achieved through a diligent preventative maintenance regime. Slainte has always been under the management of a professional captain who assisted with passage planning and basic vessel handling while underway for offshore passages and deliveries and managed any upgrades and general maintenance while ashore.</p> <p>A refit was completed in Connecticut during the 2020/21 winter season due to the associated travel complications related to the pandemic. The rig was removed and inspected, and some components were upgraded. The batteries were also replaced, along with a list of other improvements.</p> <p>She was most recently hauled in March of 2022 for fresh paint on the hull, boot, cove stripes, and anti-fouling paint on the bottom and running gear. Slainte is as good today as the day she was commissioned and is always ready to take you anywhere you desire, safely, comfortably, and in full Corinthian style.</p> <p><strong>Highlights</strong></p> <ul> <li>NEW Hull paint in Flag Blue with Snow White Cove and Boot Stipe! &ndash; March 2022!</li> <li>NEW SeaHawk Red Bottom Paint &ndash; March 2022!</li> <li>Exquisite teak interior with finely finished raised panel cabinets with high-end furniture-grade fixtures.</li> <li>Bamboo cabin sole with teak inlay and positive locking sole hatches for offshore sailing.</li> <li>Granite countertops throughout the galley and marble in the forward and aft heads.</li> <li>Custom IMTRA lighting with dimmers and valance lighting throughout the yacht</li> <li>High-quality upgrades include Moen faucets and plumbing fixtures, Cameo headliners, and Ultrafabric soft goods.</li> <li>Twaron hull with carbon aramid fiber reinforcement, solid layup without core</li> <li>Linen Beige molded non-skid fiberglass deck</li> <li>Teak toe rail and rub rail (un-varnished)</li> <li>Manship hull ports and opening deck hatches</li> <li>Watertight collision bulkheads fore and aft</li> <li>Side-Power bow thruster</li> <li>Pushpit extended to the mid-ship gates</li> <li>Full suite of Raymarine cruising electronics and iCOM communication equipment</li> <li>110 HP Yanmar engine with 1,600 hours</li> <li>9kW Northern Light generator with 1,250 hours</li> <li>MaxProp Easy 22 propeller</li> </ul> [empty string] [empty string] [empty string] [empty string] [empty string] 0160F686-9A38-F44F-B88DB9B15822B285 [empty string] [empty string] [empty string] 1965 [empty string]
