Grand Banks Northwest names Seattle broker

Grand Banks Northwest hired David Bagley as a yacht broker at the Grand Banks Northwest office at Salmon Bay Marine Center in Seattle.


Bagley, the son of well-known Pacific Northwest yacht broker Curt Bagley, joins the current team of Tucker West, Harry Walp and Leslie Simmo.

His prior experience with selling and representing boats comes from time spent at Lake Union Sea Ray in Fife, Wash., and Bellhaven Yacht Sales and Charters in Bellingham, Wash.

“I’ve been looking for a good opportunity to take the skills I have learned in my previous positions, as well as from a lifetime of boating, and hone them with a company like Grand Banks Northwest,” Bagley said in a statement. “I’m really looking forward to working with buyers and sellers to help them define their wants and needs and then match them with the perfect boat or the right buyer.”

Bagley is studying to earn Certified Professional Yacht Broker credentials.

“I think having someone like David onboard is important for both our clients and our business,” Grand Banks Northwest general manager Tucker West said in a statement. “David brings a fresh perspective, tenacity and eagerness to the position, which I believe will serve his clients very well.”
