Jim founded Eastland Yachts in 1967. He has enjoyed much success and acquired much knowledge representing and owning many boat brands in his 50 years in the marine business. While many of the manufacturers have left the market, Jim and Eastland Yachts has survived by freely sharing his experience, building long lasting relationships and providing excellent customer service year in and year out.
In addition, to selling both new and used boats, Jim has enjoyed sharing his knowledge of customers and boats with many builders and designers who have incorporated his ideas and designs into their products. Jim is modest on this point but his eye for details shows up in his other passion – photography. Jim puts his design and photography skills to work for his many customers in creating the pictures and brochures that have resulted in so many boats sold.
