Jonny was born in Crawley, West Sussex and moved to Felpham, West Sussex on the South Coast of England along the English Channel when he was 7. Even at that young age he was drawn to the water and his family spent many days watching Jonny surfing the tiny waves and cool waters of the Channel and the Atlantic. At 10 years old he started spending time in Florida at Cocoa Beach and Cape Canaveral surfing, sailing and windsurfing and also spent time in upstate New York teaching kids windsurfing and sailing on a Summer Camp. His boating career really took off when he moved to the Caymans and then to Nicaragua, where he operated both Power and Sail from 10-85ft. The boats included 10ft. Lasers to 46ft. Cats. He even did some racing around the Cayman and ran tours up and down Nicaraguan coast whale/ dolphin watching. He has a total of 22 years of power and 25 years of sail experience. He has been a captain since 2008 with over 2000 days logged at sea and various qualifications through RYA and IYT. He looks forward to speaking with his customers about their boats and boating experiences!

Tyler Terry was Virginia born and raised, Tyler has been in the boating industry for over 25 years. Like others before him, he started out in the small boat field and has sold everything from family day boats to sport fishers to luxury yachts. Along the way, he gained knowledge of numerous boat builders and the mechanical workings of each boat. His endless energy and upbeat attitude is infectious and affects everyone he comes in contact with. Tyler lives in Centerville, Maryland with his wife and 2 sons. He enjoys hunting and family fishing trips whether offshore or on the Chesapeake Bay.
I was born in Philadelphia and lived in Cherry Hill, N.J., for one year until we moved to Maryland (Fort Washington in Prince Georges County) when dad took a position as an engineer with the Department of Defense. I have lived the rest of my life in Maryland (PG, Howard or Anne Arundel counties) - with the exception of two school years at college in York, Pennsylvania, and six months in Atlanta right after I graduated from the University of Maryland at College Park.
I grew up only a few miles from the upper Potomac River (Fort Washington & Mount Vernon area) and a short drive from the Chesapeake – we often trailered to Deale or Solomons Island. We usually had a small runabout or day sailor, I’ll always remember dad teaching me to sail.
Probably my favorite memory of boating when I was growing up was when I was about 10, we rented a cabin cruiser for a week of cruising on the bay. Decades later I still remember that week, especially fishing under the bay bridge (one span back then), overnighting in front of crab shedding tables in Rock Hall and transiting the C & D Canal.
My favorite boating trip has to be a trip down the ICW years ago helping a friend move a 50 foot sailboat from Maryland to Florida.
I have approximately 35 years of boating experience – mostly power. I’ve owned a succession of boats from a Chaparral cuddy cabin through a series of Sea Ray express cruisers. I bought and rebuilt a small Mako skiff. That project afforded me hands-on experience with epoxy, painting and sanding – lots of sanding. It did cause me to have a renewed sense of appreciation for those craftsmen that can perform undetectable fiberglass repairs and painting or varnish work without runs, drips or orange peel.
I am passionate about anything boating related – just ask my wife about the decades of old Boating magazines still tucked away in the basement.
We own a Sea Ray express cruiser and a couple of kayaks. We keep our boat at the community marina on Beard’s Creek – off the South River a few minutes from Hawk’s Yachts office.
While I am new to the brokerage industry, the part I like the most, so far, is meeting people and using the tools and programs only available to brokers to help people find their perfect boat.
I am married to my wonderful wife – Jody. Two great children. One runs his own business and lives on his boat in Edgewater and the other is an attorney in Baltimore. Blessed with five grandchildren. At last count our house has three dogs (all rescues), two birds and one cat.
I am a lifelong boater, with decades of experience and memories of the Chesapeake Bay. I retired from the Department of Justice after a career chasing international fugitives. I have negotiated resolutions to thousands of cases and multiple international treaties. However, my interest and passion for boating is such that, even when I was the most experienced extradition lawyer in the DoJ, I was as knowledgeable about boats and boating, and as comfortable providing advice about anything boating related, as I was about international criminal matters. Let me put the same dedication and tenacity I used to return hundreds of fugitives to use for you by finding your “perfect” boat or by finding a buyer for your boat.
