“We are honored to partner with such a professional and successful yacht brokerage firm as Curtis Stokes & Associates,” Occoquan Harbor Marina manager Terry Holzman said. “Their reputation and concentration on customer service matches ours, so we feel our firms will be a great fit for our mutual clients in this area.”

The company also said veteran yacht broker Barbara Burke joined the firm and will be based in Jacksonville, Fla. Burke will concentrate on yacht sales and marketing for the firm from South Carolina to the Space Coast area of Florida.

Beginning in her teen years in Atlanta, Burke was powerboating and water skiing before taking up sailing in college, the result of a weekend seminar she took through the Yale Sailing Club.
