Rob’s boating life started on the Maumee River in Ohio and took him all over the Great Lakes and East Coast as a Captain on ferry boats, corporate and private yachts. He had his very own boat at 10 years old, used that early experience to secure a deckhand’s position on the storied Arawanna II, and later obtained captain’s license to run ferry boats on Lake Erie and some of the premier yachts on Lake St. Clair. Along the way, Rob attended the Chapman School of Seamanship and completed their Yacht and Small Craft Marine Surveying course. After spending ten years in the automotive industry in various sales positions, Rob joined Lakeside Marine in 2002 as General Manager of their Michigan operation. Rob has training certifications from Tiara Yachts, Pursuit, Maritimo and Volvo Penta. While Rob will be part of the Holland office, he will be “at large” on the East side of Michigan representing Maritimo of Australia and offering full brokerage services. Let Rob put his history and vast experience to work for you to find the right boat, at the right price, and all with Galati level service!
