James (or Jim) has been boating since his early years which were spent yacht club racing on the Charleston (SC) harbor (Bluejays, Y-Flyers, etc) His love for the ocean has continued throughout his life.
James earned his university degree in architecture but following his Navy service he reverted to the sea, working in various maritime pursuits, including heavy marine construction, commercial fishing, sport fishing, charters, sail and power yacht deliveries. He began his yacht brokerage career in 1980 in Annapolis,
but moved to Palm Beach in 1993 due to his involvement in ever larger yachts – power and sail. In 1995 he joined the Camper & Nicholsons Palm Beach office, where he enjoyed a successful career as a Sales Broker, before joining the Palm Beach office of IYC in 2017.
James has strong experience with all types of sail and motor yachts of all lengths, including current discussions on several 90meter + projects. He enjoys assisting his clients with all aspects of yacht sales and purchase.
With his design background, he is particularly passionate about new construction projects. In his spare time James enjoys virtually all sports and especially any related to water.
