United Yacht Sales, at its recent 10th annual national sales meeting, announced the recipients of its top performance awards for 2011.

The company’s Top Gun Award was presented to broker Scott White of Cape May, N.J., for the highest volume in dollars sold for 2011. White, and his team of associate brokers — Steve Castellini, Frank Wise and Bill Kocis — conduct business from three marinas in southern New Jersey from Cape May to Avalon.

“Scott White and his team exemplify the tenacity and cooperation it takes to compete in this market economy,” United CEO and founder Peter Schmidt said in a statement. “As our economy remains in a state of flux, competing brokers need to be focused on gaining market share through aggressive marketing and exemplary custom service. Scott White and his team are a finely tuned machine.”

Broker John Peterson of United’s New Bern, N.C., office received the award for the most boats sold in 2011.

“John Peterson applies the same passion to yacht brokerage that he learned as a Coast Guard officer and an emergency room physician,” Schmidt said in a statement. “I believe John will always be a top performer for United, and he has garnered the respect of both his co-workers and industry professionals alike.”
