Luke Brown Yacht Sales

Luke Brown Yachts prides itself upon being one of the most knowledgeable and professional boat brokerage houses in the industry. Besides representing buyers and sellers in the exchange of existing yachts, the Company has also become very active in representing clients who wish to build custom yachts. Luke Brown Yachts has represented clients who have had yachts constructed in countries as distant as Poland and Brazil. The firm is also involved in arranging both power and sail charters worldwide. Whichever of our many services you are seeking, you will find yourself in the hands of professionals in whom you can place your confidence. Our brokers, the best in the industry, know every aspect of their business and are backed by an organization with the experience, insight and business acumen needed for a successful transaction. Luke Brown Yachts was founded by Luke Brown of Cleveland, Ohio, who gave up the corporate world in mid-life to pursue a dream of skippering a charter yacht in the Caribbean. As fate would have it, the trade winds brought Luke to Fort Lauderdale instead, where he established a yacht brokerage firm in 1969. In the early years, the firm was focused on the marketing and sale of offshore sailing yachts and trawlers. As the years went on, the firm grew in size and the sphere of business expanded to include power and sailing yachts of all sizes. In 1977, Andrew Cilla, the youngest broker in the firm at age 27, purchased the Company, and continues to own and operate Luke Brown Yachts. As time went on, the Company continued to expand. In 1992 Alan Bernard was brought aboard to represent Luke Brown Yachts in Newport, RI. The following year Derek Jarman became the European agent, based in Southampton, U.K. Marc Thomas joined the Company in 2008 as the firm's agent in Annapolis, MD and the following years, Phil Annunziato joined as the Florida West coast agent. More recently, Parker Bogue, a yacht broker veteran, became our Miami agent. John Todd, a 35 year yacht broker veteran, based in Michigan represents the firm in the Great Lakes. The firm maintains twenty-two full-time brokers along with a very committed support staff. During the years that Andrew Cilla has owned Luke Brown Yachts, the firm has weathered four recessions, two fuel crisis, the luxury tax fiasco and president Carter's threat to ban weekend boating. Remarkably, the firm has always remained profitable and debt free. Luke Brown Yachts looks forward to continued success in helping boating enthusiasts to achieve their yachting dream.
