International Yacht Collection announced that Roy Sea joined the global yachting firm as a Florida and California-licensed yacht broker.
With a yachting background that spans 40 years, Sea has expertise in many of the world’s leading yacht brands and brokerages, including Broward, Burger Boat Co., Christensen, Feadship, Jarrett Bay Yacht Sales (Hatteras, Grand Banks and Albemarle), Merrill Stevens, Ocean Alexander, Palmer Johnson, Vicem USA and Viking.
He previously worked for the Navy’s Diving and Ocean Engineering Department, with secret security clearance, testing and operating equipment.
Sea also has sailed the Atlantic, dived to 290-feet — and authored engineering papers on diving — worked as a project manager for the cleanup of the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Prince William Sound, Alaska, and has held a Coast Guard ocean operator’s license since 1972.
“We welcome Roy Sea to our exceptional brokerage team,” IYC president Bob Saxon said in a statement. “His richly diverse background in all aspects of yachting, sales and experience on the water, even below the water, makes him particularly well-suited for the expanding IYC brand.”
