Chris Coughlin discovered his passion for boating as a young boy growing up on the Whitefish Chain of Lakes in Minnesota. The call of the sea was too overwhelming for him to deny so Chris relocated to Florida where his family vacationed on his grandfather’s boat. Chris kicked off his career as an ambitious 21-year-old with the Allied Marine Group eager to learn the ropes of the yachting industry. Before long, he had earned a Captain’s license and spent many incredible days at sea logging over 30,000 nautical miles while captaining some of the world’s finest vessels.
As years went on, he found that sharing in the enjoyment of new yacht owners to be among the most satisfying experiences- from conducting the first trial run to post-sale training. The relationships formed with these boat owners allowed for Chris to have a seamless transition to yacht sales. To this day, he feels that the most rewarding moments are the experiences of sharing in the joy of his clients’ dreams taking shape.
