Meet the Brokers image Welcome, my name is Rock Ryan. I am President and Founder of The other guy in the picture is my grandson and his name is Evan. He still plays and has fun but so do I. I grew up boating on the Saginaw Bay in Lake Huron (Great Lakes). I always had a love for the water and boats. I’m proud to say that I served in the US Navy which was one of my best experiences in life. I have had a lot of different jobs and owned many businesses in my life and they all gave me more knowledge and wisdom for what I do today. My motto, “If you love what you do, then you will never have to work.” I am a Certified Professional Yacht Broker, a member of Yacht Brokers Association of America, B.A. Business Administration and been in the yacht brokerage business over 20 years. I have sold boats all over the world. I would like to say, “I don’t sell boats, I sell fun and life long memories”. Boating is about spending quality time with family and friends. Our goal is to make purchasing or selling your boat a pleasant and memorable experience in every step of the process. If for any reason you are not 100% satisfied with our service please call me on my Cell 989-213-3544 or email I want to hear from you and do everything I can to make it right. I look forward to doing business with you.
