Ensign’s Vast & Diverse Maritime Experience Make Him Expert Yachting Matchmaker for Buyers & Sellers
FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. – Fort Lauderdale-based luxury yacht brokerage firm 26 North Yachts recently announced the hiring of yachting industry veteran Rob Ensign as broker with the innovative, forward-driving company.
“Rob brings a passion for yachting to every client deal,” said Mike Carlson, co-owner / broker. “His in-depth expertise dealing with a wide variety of clients, owners, cruising ports and powerboats allows him to serve as an ultimate matchmaker in pairing a perfect owner with the perfect vessel to suit the individual’s needs.”
Starting with his first boat at the age of 10, Ensign brings decades of diverse yachting industry experience to 26 North Yachts. With a nautical last name and a father who was a Marine Patrol Ensign, Broker Rob Ensign was destined for a maritime life. Growing up in Westchester County, NY, Ensign played many roles in the family’s marine service business. Launching from his native Mamaroneck Harbor port, he explored the great harbors and coves of Western Long Island Sound, skiing, swimming and anchoring for long weekends.
Over time, Ensign became an experienced area day captain and instructor to new boat owners. In 1996, he earned his 100-ton masters license and began full-time private captain work on a diverse range of vessels. He has extensive cruising experience along the Eastern seaboard and in the Bahamas.
Ensign’s favorite port is Sag Harbor because of the access to shops and restaurants and walk-ability in the town. Rob is married–he and his wife used to work on boats together–and enjoy two children.
“We’re thrilled to have Ensign on our team,” said Nicholas Scherb, co-owner / broker. “He excels in relating with clients, asking the right questions of buyers and sellers and expertly navigating the complexity of a yachting deal.”
