Prestige Yacht Sales added George Middleton to its full-time professional boat sales and brokerage staff at the new office at Norwalk Cove Marina in Norwalk, Conn.


Middleton has been a broker for the last six years with Brewer Yacht Sales in Stamford, Conn., and has many years in the marine magazine and marketing businesses with Cruising World and Sailing World.

He was instrumental in organizing the National Offshore One-design Regattas series at prominent racing events. A passionate and avid lifelong boater, power and sail, Middleton sailed in four Bermuda Races, two trans-Atlantics and three Southern Ocean Racing Conference races by the time he was 24. This summer, he raced with a winning team on a Nelson Marek 30 and cruised single-handed on a Tartan 34-2.
