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.
