My name is John Gomez. According to my mother, my first word as a child was "boatah", uttered as I was pointing to the boats cruising out in the San Francisco bay, across from where I grew up in Tiburon.

That being said, I really didn't even start boating until my late 30's, when I bought a 21 foot Chris Craft open bow. That 21 footer hooked me and my very next boat was a 45 foot 1980 Chris Craft Commander, which I have been living on with my wife and family going on 15 years now at Riverbank Marina. My boat is named after my wife and first mate, "Genny Lynn".

After an exciting 25 year career as a police officer, that included 15 years on SWAT, I retired and wondered what I was going to do next. My interest for boating was still alive and kicking. A good friend of mine asked me if I'd be interested in selling boats. It sounded like a good fit to me, due to my knowledge of boats and passion for the liquid lifestyle.

I was introduced to a broker named Gordon Light, who took me under his wing and showed me how to sell boats the right way, using the honesty, integrity and dependability I learned from my years as a police officer and applying it to the boat sales business.

After 3 years and over 50 boat and yacht sales under my belt, I applied for and received my broker's license. After yet another year of learning how to broker and sell boats, I decided to strike out on my own.

I am very excited to be to be starting my second year here at River City Yacht and Boat Sales and continue to enjoy serving the boating community in the greater Sacramento area.
