The Brokers

David Croom

At the early age 11, David accepted his first job on a boat (as mate) and has been focused on the marine industry ever since. A USCG licensed captain at age 19, he has experience operating a wide range of vessels including commercial vessels, sail, motoryachts and sportfishing boats. This experience helps David's customers by providing them with a wide range of services and assistance after their purchase. As David puts in his own words, "With a little over 28 years in the yacht brokerage business one thing is true; this is a very simple business. We just focus on the customers' needs, wants and dreams and the rest is easy."

When not helping clients find a new boat or sell their existing boat, David enjoys offshore fishing, hunting and flying private airplanes, but most importantly he enjoys being with his 3 children.  David study Marine Transportation at Massechuetts Maritime Academy and graduated from the University of Georgia with a BBA in Business/Finance.

Rik Beitel

A waterman since the 70's, Rik has been involved in almost every aspect of watersports and boating from working in a local surfshop, racing J30's and yacht deliveries to the sales of new and brokerage Bertram sportfishermen. "My relationship with clients goes well beyond selling their boat or helping them find their 'special' boat. Whether for cruising, fishing or family fun, their specific situation and needs are unique and so is their boat."

When not working with clients, Rik spends his time sportfishing, inshore fishing, photography & surfing (with the entire family), supporting his 2 children's sports teams and working with his son's Scout troop. "I've been fortunate enough to have always been involved in sports and activities that I've been passionate about." Rik said. "It has allowed me to stay active and enjoy every day of my career." Rik ran his own sales agency for 19 years and worked directly for such companies as O'Neill Wetsuits, Burton Snowboards, DaKine Hawaii , Gordon & Smith, Hobie Cat and Marinemax Yachts & Brokerage.  Rik graduated from the University of North Carolina - Wilmington with a BA in Earth Sciences/Geography, fulfilled the requirements for a major in Anthropology and then completed 1.5 years of undergraduate business courses.
