MarineMax Norwalk in Connecticut said it has added yacht specialist Bill Maschas.

Born in Athens, Greece, Maschas spent his childhood on the water, fishing and boating with his father and brother. He graduated from the Merchant Marine Academy of Hydra, Greece, earned his Captain Class C international license and traveled on product tankers and crew ships.

After he moved to the United States, Maschas earned an MBA from the Maritime College at Fort Schuyler in New York and for more than 20 years worked as a freight trader for domestic owners of oceangoing vessels.

He moved on to a career as a yacht broker and has worked with brands such as Beneteau, Jupiter, True North and Hinckley.

“Bill is a great listener and strives to accommodate every need in a timely and efficient manner,” Dave Dzurilla, MarineMax Connecticut general manager, said in a statement. “His robust skill set includes helping you find your dream yacht, whether new, used or brokerage, as well as brokering your current yacht.”
