Robert Milano

President and CEO



Robert Milano is the Founder, President and Chief Executive Officer for both Domestic and International Yacht Sales, Yacht Brokerage and related maritime services at Robert Christopher Yacht Sales. He is actively engaged in organizational expansion on a global scale to include emerging markets and new broker development.



Bobs has had a lifelong love of the water and you can see his early enjoyment in our section on the history of our company. His first experience on the water was at the age of four with his father Harry in rented wood row boats with the family Evinrude Outboard engine. He and his younger brother Ed grew up fishing and boating on Long Island Sound and bought their first boat a 15’ bowrider around 1969. At the age of 25 Bob and his brother Ed purchased their first marina in New Rochelle New York. This led to a long career in yacht sales and yacht services. Bob after almost forty years of marine industry service, helping to sell thousands of boats and yachts along the way and gaining many friends in the boating and business community is still active in growing the company in the new domestic and emerging International markets.

However possibly his proudest accomplishment is designing , writing and implementing the finest yacht broker training program in the marine industry. This virtually allows almost anyone with some nominal boating and business experience to explore the possibility of a career in yacht sales. This is done through written materials, coaching, mentoring and online tutorials. “I have always found it the most rewarding to share this wonderful career experience with those who want to come on board in our industry.”

In 2011 in combination with the owner of Albin Marine, RCYS engaged into the sales, operation and manufacturing of Albin Yachts through a new division of Robert Christopher Yacht Sales. This new division in “Albin Yachts – Albin Yacht Sales”. RCYS has introduced a New Generation of Albin Yachts, through a licensing agreement with models ranging from 25' to 85' and custom yachts above that level. Albin Yachts is a 114 year old marine engine and yacht manufacturer. Robert Christopher Yacht Sales will reintroduce Albin Yachts to the global market place through Albin Yacht Sales.

Bob is also the creator and founder of CEO BUSINESS SOLUTIONS. The CEO Forum, which provides discussionary groups to business and entrepreneurs on a variety of topics. It provides a forum style environment for members and guests and allows for problem solving, experience sharing, networking and possibility creation from the perspective of both traditional and contemporary business and management theories, strategies and tactics.

UNITED STATES AIR FORCE
Bob enlisted and served honorably in multiple duty stations during the Vientam War. He was involved and responsible for flight line and airborne missions with the 904th Military Airlift Group, Stewart AFB. NY. Was deployed and served in Southeast Asia 1968 and 1969 with the 107th Combat Support Squadron, Red Horse and Prime Beef units which received the Presidential Unit Citation. He was attached to the Pacific Air Command, and participated in the planned rescue of the US Intelligence Ship USS Pueblo, North Korea. 1968. He continued in missions in support of far East operations throughout the theater of operations for US Forces, UN Forces and allied operations.

Today it’s still the best time to be a boater and to continue operations here at RCYS. I Hope you will visit our section on Where It All Began. And thanks for visiting our site. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Mary Carlino

HR Brokers Recruitment


Mary Carlino is our newest addition to the Robert Christopher family. Mary functions as a human resources recruiter, working out of Newport, RI; helping RCYS bring more brokers into our system. One of the key ingredients to the RCYS program is fresh brokers with fresh listings on a continual basis. Which thereby increases sales inquires for our listing clients. We feel Mary's assistance in this very strategic role is truly a giant step forward for RCYS. Mary has had quite a career. Having grown up in Jamestown and Newport RI; Mary is no stranger to the water, boats, and the boating lifestyle. Mary privately has said; "I get excited just "looking" at boats! The ocean has always held a very powerful and spiritual meaning for me and "sitting on the ocean" in a beautiful boat is the closest thing I can think of to "Heaven"!!
Mary's career has led her through women's fashion in New York City, and a stint as an image consultant conducting corporate seminars for female employees guiding them to "dress for success." Here in the Northeast she created and produced a TV show called "Beautiful Inns of New England", and also hosted two live radio talk shows in West Palm Beach. Mary is now back here in Newport, RI in a very strategic role for RCYS. For information on a career in yacht sales and yacht brokerage contact Mary through RCYS.
