Greg Terraglio | President/Owner | (772) 214-2393 Cell
Greg has dedicated his entire career to the yachting industry. As a young man, he was involved in vessel construction at Sea Ray, and rapidly worked his way up to the position of Assembly Manager of the yacht division, a position he held for six years.
Greg then followed his passion for sales and customer service, accepting a position selling Sea Ray yachts for Bassett Boat Company, and as one of their top performers, was promoted to General Manager for their Stuart and Palm Beach locations.
Shortly after Bassett merged into Marine Max, Greg formed his own yacht brokerage business, Sovereign Yacht Sales. Over the past 15 years, Greg has grown Sovereign Marine Group into one of South Florida’s leading sources for Regulator, Contender, Marquis and Carver yachts, as well as has becoming a leading force in the yacht brokerage industry.
Today, Sovereign Marine is one of the largest dealers for Regulator center consoles in the World, and has developed a special relationship with Marquis Yachts, as a Platinum Dealer, for year-over-year top sales performance and customer service. Sovereign Marine has shown continued growth with expansion beyond its Stuart, FL., headquarters, with offices in Jupiter and Palm Beach Gardens.
Jim Penix | Licensed Yacht Professional | (772) 370-5330 Cell
I have over 35 years’ experience in the Marine Industry, 20 of those I ran my own brokerage and service business in the Great Lakes area. I am a graduate of Bowling Green State University and have always been active in sports, fishing and the boating world. I have been in all aspects of the business, from Sport Fishing, Cruising, to Offshore Racing. I also have a vast knowledge of the mechanical working of a vessel down to the construction itself. I have experience in refitting brokerage boats as well as rigging new boats. I am involved in many tournaments and boating excursions with clients throughout the Bahamas and the Florida Keys. I joined Sovereign Marine Group because it is a very professional group of people and I can continue to give my clients the honest and professional service that I have built my career on, and also gives them a very pleasant experience in buying a new boat or selling their present one. More than half of my client base is from repeat business and client referrals. Let my many years of experience work hard for you, as it did for them. My clients have a great deal of confidence in my knowledge and abilities and expect my honesty and professional service and that’s what they get from me. Please let my experience work for you.

Bob Qamar | Licensed Yacht Professional | (772)349-4694 cell
Bob has always felt that “once (he) was two feet off the dock that life got better”. Boating and fishing for the last 20 years, Bob has developed a love for everything about the water. Long Island Sound and trips to Montauk, or Tuna off of Gloucester gave him a respect for the water, and appreciation of having a quality vessel under him. This led Bob to a second career in marine marketing and sales, which he has enjoyed for the past 10 years A recent move to Stuart, Fl. has “turned-up the volume” on boating and fishing these incredible turquoise waters.

For many people being on the water is a passion, but for Will it has been an obsession and driving influence his entire life. Without boats and the water, he wouldn't know what to do for a living and he has been this way since he was 10 years old. By the time he was 10 years old, Will was a very accompolished sailor and was obsessed with trying to find new ways to go faster on the water. He would spend hours at night drawing boats and it didn't take long for him to realize that he wanted to be a Naval Architect and Marine Engineer and the course was set. Will graduated from Virginia Tech in 2011 with a Bachelors degree in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering. Since than, Will has done just about everything in the marine industry. He has been a captain, an intern for Cummins Mercruiser Diesel, worked as a builder and warranty representative at Sportsman Boats, and designer and engineer for Key West Boats and Pursuit Boats. Will is now happy to call Sovereign his home and feels that everything he has done in his career was to get to this point. Will brings an enormous amount of technical knowledge and on water experience so don't be afraid to ask him technical questions! He holds a USCG 100 Ton Masters Liscense.
