Craig Nann - Yacht Broker, CPYB

Portsmouth, RI, US

Craig Nann, born in Metuchen, NJ spent his summers growing up on his family’s powerboat.  Craig found his niche in the sailboat world early in his teens while spending his summers with his family at a resort in Lake George, NY.  He quickly became respected for his instinctive talent for sailing and was hired there for several summers to work as a member of their waterfront program. While studying marine affairs at the University of Rhode Island, Craig joined the perennially ranked URI sailing team where he was a member of the 1996 Offshore National Championship team,  was team captain from ’96-’97 and served as the head sailing instructor for three years.  He began to crew on larger sailboats in the Newport area when he was subsequently hired to maintain and coordinate the racing programs for several sailboats.  This launched his career not only as a professional sailor but also as a yacht broker.  Craig has been a broker for 13 years in both New England and Florida and has a wide range of contacts throughout the marine industry.  He has been employed in sales, management, and service in addition to becoming a licensed insurance producer specializing in personal yacht insurance. Craig has enjoyed living in Newport, RI for many years with his wife and three dogs.  They enjoy sailing their J24 as well as their membership in the New York Yacht Club.  His boating knowledge has brought him invitations ranging from several offshore power and sailboat deliveries to National and International Regattas and the 2001 America’s Cup Jubilee in Cowes, England. Craig follows in his grandfather’s footsteps in sales with a simple philosophy:  build long lasting trustworthy relationships with your customers and assist them in fulfilling their needs.  It is not about buying or selling the boat but finding the “right” boat for each client and then assisting with every detail throughout the process.  He looks forward to assisting you.

Testimonials

I just found the "perfect" boat. How does that happen? It starts with the right broker, Craig Nann at Northstar Yachts. We worked closely together to make the tradeoffs always facing a boat buyer. Faith is my third boat, so I had a good idea what I wanted, just needed (a lot of), help finding it. Craig and I worked together and found a great fit, and were able to get a deal done. After the transaction, I'm also using Northstar's service coordination capability and have been very pleased with that too. If you're looking for a turnkey partner for your boating needs, I'd recommend Craig, and Northstar Yachts.

Craig Nann was our broker and I cant express enough the over the top customer service he provided. Craig kept us in the loop of progress and guided us through the process above and beyond what I would have expected. We will surely be going back to Craig for our next yachting adventure! I would 100% recomend Crag Nann and the NorthStar team to any one of my friends in the in the market to purchase or sell.
