Bob and Shar Fillingham, USCG 100-Ton Masters Licensed Captains and certified US Power boating instructors, are full time yacht brokers with offices in St. Petersburg in the Tampa Bay area on the West Coast of Florida and offices on the East Coast of Florida in Daytona Beach, Florida, and Miami-Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

We bring a wealth of experience and maturity to the yacht brokerage community. We have many years of boating experience on the Gulf of Mexico and have enjoyed extensive days and hours cruising throughout the Great Lakes, U.S. coastal waters, Canada and the Caribbean.

Our love of cruising even took us on a 6-month journey in 1997 to complete the Great Loop Waterway Trip - 5400 miles and 104 locks. We can help you with your yacht selection that would be best suited to a voyage of this nature.

Prior to boat brokering, we both had very successful business careers in the USA and throughout Europe and Asia. We are serious in the manner in which we conduct our business. You can depend on our integrity, knowledge, communication skills, professionalism and friendliness.

They are members of numerous organizations; such as St. Petersburg Yacht Club, Marine Trawler Owners Association (MTOA), Florida Yacht Brokers Association, USSAILING, and United States Power Squadron.
