Alan has been finding the right boat for buyers since 1998. And he’s been representing sellers and assisting them in marketing, pricing and negotiating sales on their vessels for years. In 2015 Alan realized a long time dream of opening his own yacht brokerage and Windswept Yacht Sales began. The name Windswept comes from his much loved sailboat; Windswept. Initially working in sales and marketing for high performance catamaran manufacturer Horizon Yachts in Charleston, SC, and later, building motor yachts in mainland China for the US market, Alan brings not only solid knowledge of construction, systems and seaworthiness to his role at Windswept Yacht Sales, but strong analytical skills to help find the right boat for the right client, and for knowing how to market, price, promote and ultimately close the sale for an owner looking to move up, down or out of his or her current boat. He knows the importance of working closely with his clients and is committed to helping them make the right decision regarding their boating plans. And he is with his clients for the long haul well after the sale is concluded and the boat leaves the dock. That is why many of his clients have used him for multiple sales of their yachts over the years. Alan has a long history of selling both new and brokerage boats including brands such as Sabre Yacht, Island Packet, Delphia, Catalina and Hunter. He brings his knowledge and experience of both coastal cruising and bluewater performance sailing to Windswept Yacht Sales.
