Mid Atlantic Yacht Sales is the enthusiastic venture of Jim Houser and Peter Brower. Each are lifelong boaters and sailors and are passionate about the boating lifestyle. Peter spent the late 60’s and early 70’s working in the boating industry. Peter has cruised and raced extensively on his Bowman 46. Jim sailed E Scows and MC Scows for 40 years on inland lakes in Atlanta and Charlotte. Jim also has extensive experience in sailboat race management and has been active in Charleston Race Week for 15 years.
Their mutual love of boating led them to create a sales company where people who love boats can buy and sell and truly connect with others in an atmosphere of authenticity. Specifically, Mid Atlantic Yacht Sales specializes in traditional “down east” power boats.
Peter and Jim’s extensive personal knowledge of this genre of yachts is deepened by a close relationship that they have enjoyed with several of the builders of the marques that they specialize in. They have gained an even deeper knowledge by personally visiting a number of factories including: Boston Boat Works, Boston, and MJM Yachts in Washington, NC. Future visits include Hinckley Yachts, CH Yachts at Shelter Island, NY, Sabre Yachts in Raymond, ME.
