Team LeadersMeetMike Carlson & Nicholas Scherb 

As co-founders of 26 North Yachts, Mike Carlson and Nicholas Scherb comprise one of the great partnerships in the yachting industry. Part of this success is due to their each having a distinct area of focus:


Mike heads up the “Sell Side” team, focusing exclusively on representing motor yacht Sellers. This focus allows for maximum exposure and attention to properly marketing your vessel. He knows our strengths and fully maximize them. Mike says, “if you sit down with me for a few minutes to discuss marketing and selling your boat, I guarantee you will see the value, and that I will outperform and outwork any broker in the industry.” As a pioneer in the use of online marketing to promote brokerage yachts, with more than a decade of experience building the 26 North Yachts brand and website, no one is better suited to effectively and creatively position a motor yacht for sale in today’s marketplace. Mike has sold large numbers in motor yachts – and more than a few of these were yachts that had previously languished on the market with other brokers.


Nicholas leads our “Buy Side” team, which assists Buyers in their acquisition of a yacht. Nicholas understands the technical side of yachting as well as anyone, and he uses this knowledge to guide his clients through the buying process – this proves invaluable from the very first viewing, to when the time comes to analyze the results of the Survey & Sea Trial. Nicholas is also an expert in the motor yacht market, and his understanding of pricing, resale value, and what constitutes a compelling “deal”, is readily apparent to anyone who has worked with him. He has represented Buyers in their purchase of some of the most prestigious vessels around, and has a wealth of transactional experience.
