Marine Development

When asked to expand beyond his captain’s duties to other areas of working on the water, such as marina development and marketing,Charley took hold of those opportunities, gaining valuable experience as both a general manager involved in the rebuilding of a marina and as a senior associate with a waterfront development team.

As General Mgr for Jupiter Island Beach Yacht Club [JIB Club], he oversaw the complete restoration of this beautiful marina at the southern tip of Jupiter Island at Jupiter Inlet. New docks and configuration, electrical and cable service, installation of fuel delivery, staffing, ship’s store and, of course, leasing. A very successful project, the marina was leased out with a waiting list in just under two years.

In December of 2001, Charley was hired by Martin Tabor, President of Martin Tabor & Assoc. to captain the company motor yacht. Marty’s vision of the boat as an ideal marketing tool for waterfront properties was clear, and he asked Charley if he was interested in acquiring his real estate license.

The Treasure Coast Commerce Center, home to the well known and respected American Custom Yacht, sold out in 2006. Not long after, the waterfront community of Lost River was building out its final phase.

Charley continues to work and consult with the owners of strategic marina properties looking toward the future.
