Ralph has been on the water, in some form, all his life. He grew up around the lakes and rivers of Missouri, Arkansas and Oklahoma. A move to Florida allowed him to spend time sailing the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. After receiving his US Coast Guard Master’s license, Ralph found a way to share his passion for boating by becoming an approved instructor, teaching captain‚Äôs licensing classes. He is also an ASA sailing instructor. His career in the newspaper industry gave Ralph the opportunity to live and boat in many parts of the U.S., including the Chesapeake Bay. Now as a full-time yacht broker, Ralph is back in Florida helping people find the boat that will allow them to pursue their boating dreams.
