Tom and Melinda Lippincott
Tom was born into a boat building family, with weekends usually spent at a regatta somewhere. Tom learned at an early age that "messing about in boats" if disguised properly could pass as work. Melinda came into the scene when Tom was 15 and they have been together ever since. One of their greatest accomplishments was pitching it all and taking their three daughters out cruising for two years. "A life changing event for us all it truly bonded us in a way that may not have been possible otherwise."
As a team Tom and Melinda bring the knowledge, experience and passion to offer their clients a unique and rewarding experience whether buying or selling.
"Charlie" has been selling sailboats on the Bay since 1986. Long associated with Caliber and Sabre Yachts many will recognize Charlie from working the Annapolis Boat Shows... Charlies knowledge and depth and long association with the industry make him invaluable in helping you find the right boat!
Salt Yacht Brokerage is pleased to announce the addition of Connie Ranney to our team. Connie, who started sailing out of Rock Hall 20 years ago, brings with her a love of sailing and an in-depth knowledge of boating.
“We’re thrilled to have Connie on board,” says Tom Lippincott, owner of Salt Yachts. “She has the passion and know-how to help our clients find their perfect boat.”
Connie started sailing when she was ten years old on the South Jersey shore. She enjoys many on-water activities, including sailing, fishing, cruising and working on boats.
After 25 years as a Systems Engineer for Lockheed Martin Corporation, she now resides on Harrington Creek in Rock Hall with her husband and daughters. For the past few years, Ranney has served as the Director of the RHYC Sailing School and ran numerous regattas at the Rock Hall Yacht Club. Joining the Salt Yachts team brings a new dimension to Connie's water-oriented passion.
