After years of working in facets of the industry Charles decided to venture out on his own and start Select Boat Brokerage, LLC. He knew he could make a difference and offer a personalized touch and service in your boat buying experience. “You can’t always find that perfect boat, but with a little homework and understanding of the pros and cons of what’s available, you can get pretty close and Select Boat Brokerage will help you along the way.” Charles’ career has carried him from Maine all the way down to the Florida Keys over the years, creating a great deal of contacts in the marine industry. So naturally the next step is to take his knowledge and love for boating to the next level. “North Carolina has always been my home so I think it best to start my business here.”
The used boat market is growing every day. They’re packed with more features because the ability of the customer to provide feedback is higher than ever, and that feedback does make its way into the final product. Knowing what the customer wants and how to talk to a customer are what Charles is all about. “customer service is what it is all about not just selling a boat!” He takes is time to provide detailed photos of the boat, answering questions, and providing as much detail possible for you to make a decision. After all buying a boat is a huge investment that needs to be well thought out. Charles personally inspects each and every boat he sells. “I will not sell a boat that will produce an unhappy customer. Charles grew up on the Crystal Coast of North Carolina. As a little boy he would take out his Grandfathers Jon boat and go fishing. He always had an interest in boats and at an early age started working in the marine industry and a dockhand and a forklift driver. Later went to college in NC and his passion for boats continued to grow only to bring him back to Morehead City working in retail management and boat sales.
Now, after working in the marine industry for more than 20 years, I realize that it takes time to learn and understand the true art of working with clients and navigating the many boat options out there.” It took the same amount of work to become a good fisherman as it did to understand the complex interaction between each buyer and his chosen boat. Just like anglers, species of fish and fishing grounds, every boat buyer, seller and boat are different. So if you are in the market for a new or used boat Charles is your guy.
