Jean-Pierre Skov - Yacht Broker, CPYB

Portsmouth, RI, US

Jean-Pierre Skov was born and raised in St. Croix, U.S.V.I. He grew up in the marine industry, starting with his Dad’s charter company and boat yard on the East end of the Island. In the mid 70’s his family made the decision that the kids should be educated in the Northeast.

At that point he was off to Massachusetts for school. Every vacation he was on a plane back to the waters of the Caribbean. On his breaks from school he would work as a charter Captain sailing day trips to Buck Island National Park off, the North coast of St. Croix. After graduating from the University of Massachusetts he moved back to St. Croix permanently. Once again sailing as a charter captain and also competitively for the V.I. Olympic team. In 1991 Jean-Pierre went to work for Hess Oil in the marine department as a deck hand on a tug and later the same year became Captain of a 105’ ship handling/ocean-towing tug.

In 1995 he took the position of Waterfront manager for Marina Bay in North Quincy, MA. Once the new management system was in place his next project was to develop a new boat dealership and brokerage. At this point, Jean-Pierre migrated to being a full-time yacht broker. His knowledge of the industry and yachts in general made this transition the perfect fit. He prides himself in developing his client relationships into friendships. His clients know that he is always only a phone call away to answer any questions, whether it is about thier next yacht or the next piece of gear for the current boat. Jean-Pierre can be found doing what he does best, putting his clients in the right yacht.

JP curently serves as the president of the Yacht Brokers Association of America (YBAA)
