CRAIG DAWSON, Licensed and Bonded Yacht and Ship Broker

In 2009, after my retirement as an executive in the medical laboratory business I moved to Florida and am currently living in the Sarasota area. My lifelong love of boats inspired me to get my Florida Yacht and Ship Sales Associate License and start a new career as a yacht sales person. Shortly after receiving my license I started a Marine Brokerage business with two other partners in Palmetto, FL.  Our company, All Captains Yacht Sales, has been in business since Oct. 2015 with an office at Regatta Point Marina. In June of 2017 I received my Yacht and Ship Brokers License. Currently, we represent buyers and sellers all over the globe. My career moved me to various cities in the US allowing me to experience boating in many different bodies of water; Lake Michigan, Galveston Bay, both Florida Coasts, Chesapeake Bay and Cape Cod. This vast boating experience is extremely helpful in assisting with buyers and sellers all over the United States. My prior business experience in management, sales and customer service allows me to assist buyers and sellers to achieve arguably the happiest day of their life-either by purchasing or selling a boat. It is my mission to take the “hassle” out of the purchase or sale process for your vessel. My experiences have taught me the value of customer relationship and trust that I put to work for all my clients.

To be able to say "the boat is sold" is the best testimony we can offer! All Captains brought us on our 1985 Huckins Custom 50' Pilothouse the most frequent showings and got it sold! Craig and Wayne made this sale process so easy for both the sellers and buyers, are client attentive, and we would highly recommend their services to anyone interested in purchasing or selling. The team at All Captains is friendly- and pet-friendly,(lol) helpful, boat savvy, and committed to your sales efforts. Their lights are on and their door is always open. The new website design is awesome- contemporary and very user friendly. Thanks Craig, Wayne, and All Captains sales team!

​​Oh boy do I have a bunch of exited people on my hands! Thank you for all of your efforts and for meeting with them today. 
Someone had to stay back and man our realistic world and since I don't have a natural love for sharks I volunteered! I would like a VAT of the shark repellant to come along with the boat please.
