Heading up our Yacht Sales and Brokerage division is Sales Director and Managing Broker Bob Jarrett. Bob is among the most experienced brokers in the Industry with over 30 years of experience in New England and Florida. Bob has represented hundreds of families in the purchase, management and sale of their yachts. Having gained valuable knowledge as General Manager of Bassett Boat Company, Vice President of Boatworks Yacht Sales and Senior Sales Director for The Hinckley Company, Bob has represented such notable builders as Viking, Hatteras, Cabo, Grand Banks, Sabre, Hinckley, Beneteau and Sea Ray among others. He’s experienced in new yacht sales, brokerage and construction of sailing and motor yachts and made valuable contributions in product development for many of these builders. 

In May of 2016 recognizing the potential of the Essex Boat Works facility under the new ownership, a sales division was formed with Bob at the helm. Unique in the area, EBW can offer its clients seeking to buy or sell a boat the full capabilities of a working service and storage yard and marina. This synergy all under one entity streamlines the process of boat ownership and the transitions owners go through over the years managing their boats.

Bob has logged thousands of miles racing and cruising aboard sailing and motor yachts encompassing the Great Lakes, Atlantic Coast, Gulf of Mexico, Bahamas and the Caribbean gaining valuable firsthand experience. A proud member of Yacht Brokers Associations of America and Florida, CPYB certified and a licensed Florida Yacht Broker, he’s built an exemplary reputation based on superior hands on client care and honest representation.

Great things are in store at EBW and sales are growing rapidly under Bob’s direction. Please visit us today and learn about all that EBW has to offer for you and your boat!
