With over three decades of experience, Martin has gained extensive expertise about building, outfitting, and selling major boat brand yachts for a discerning clientele. Martin brings that experience to every customer interaction. Whether clients are buying or selling a yacht, or customizing one of their own, they find working with Martin an informative and fun experience.
Martin started out in the boating industry in 1985 with a dealership in Portland, Oregon that sold Wellcraft & Reinell boats. Martin went on to spend 18 years at Seaward Yacht Sales selling Grand Banks, Kadey-Krogen, Nordhavn, CHBB/Ponderosa, Silverton, and Mainship yachts. Then, at Compass Point/Crow’s Nest Yachts Martin sold Tiara, Cheoy Lee, Compass Yachts, and Viking Yachts. After this, Martin took a sales manager position at Adventure Yachts, the Pacific Northwest dealer for Hampton, Legend, Pama, Regency, and Symbol Yachts. In 2008, he formed the Hampton Yacht Group with four partners and was a working partner for six years. In December of 2014, he and his friend and business partner Jeff Chen opened the sales office for Premiere Yachts to reintroduce the Regency line that had been put on hold during the recession. Premiere Yachts is the global importer for Regency Motor Yachts with dealers in California, Florida, Canada and Australia and is also a brokerage offering a wide range of pre-owned yachts.
Martin and Kristen are the owners of Premiere Yachts, importers of Regency and Whitehaven Motoryachts. With Martin and Kristen joining us, they are appointing Seattle Yachts as the dealers of Regency and Whitehaven for the Pacific Northwest (US) and the Southeast (Florida). Martin will be the Brand Manager for these two fine products and will also be a broker/sales associate in our Seattle office.
