Skip was born and raised in Michigan and got his nickname “Skip”, short for skipper, from spending all his summers at the lake house and enjoying the family boats. After a tour in the Navy, he was invited to help bring a boat from Michigan to the Bahamas. It was after that amazing trip, he moved to Florida in 1972, got married and began his journey in the marine industry.

He served as sales manager for 9 years for a local engine and generator company, started his own company in 1981. After hurricane Andrew, he was recruited by a local boat yard as service/sales manager to help clear the mass of damaged boats from the storm. During that time, he joined the Marine Industry Association of South Florida and served on the Board of Directors for 6 years. After the marina sold, he joined Cable Marine as General Manager for one of their support companies. In 2003, he got into yacht brokerage and new boat sales for Grand Alaskan and in 2010 moved on to Hampton Yachts. After 45+ years of experience in all aspects of the marine industry, Skip truly loves what he does and is dedicated to helping people fulfill their dreams of the boating lifestyle and finding the perfect boat to meet their needs.

"Skip Smith was very patient. He worked with us for 3 ½ years identifying, previewing and showing yachts to us. Skip was always cheerful and persistent, ready to look at another boat even after viewing several disappointments. Skip has years of knowledge and experience with high end watercraft. There was never any high pressure selling. In the end Skip found the perfect Yacht for us, Thank you Skip!" - Larry and Janet
