Our Yacht Brokers are Your Go-To Boat Brokers in Victoria
Greg Andrew, CPYB
Greg Andrew was born in Vancouver, BC and has lived most of his life in Victoria, BC. His love for boating began as a young child cruising on his parents’ various power boats from Sidney through the Gulf and San Juan Islands. As a young teen he learned the basics of sailing aboard Flying Juniors at the Royal Victoria Yacht Club, although his passion remains in power boating. He earned his Business Administration diploma from Camosun College in Victoria and has spent most of his 22-year career in sales & marketing. He began his career as a professional yacht broker in 2005 for Van Isle Marina and is a member of the BC Yacht Brokers Association. His other interests include traveling, playing squash and golf, and doing anything outdoors. However, his favorite activity of late is spending quality time with his wife, Tara, and their beautiful girl, Callie Elizabeth. The most rewarding part of yacht brokering for Greg is getting to know his clients on a personal level. He particularly finds gratification in fitting clients with the right boats for their needs, whether a small pocket cruiser, center cockpit sloop, raised pilothouse or a new Pursuit boat. Greg can be seen navigating the local waters with his family aboard MV Hey Now.
Following his passion for boating, Adam Pedersen joins the team at Van Isle Marina after 18 successful years in the Victoria luxury automotive industry, working with manufacturers such as Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Alfa Romeo.
Raised in North Vancouver, Adam spent his younger years involved with the Royal Canadian Sea Cadets learning to sail or to pilot various power vessels as well as instructing seamanship programs.
With an affinity for anything mechanical, Adam has spent his life restoring or racing anything with an engine, whether that be a classic car or a vintage boat. As of late, spending time with his wife and daughter on their 42-foot Chris Craft Commander has replaced the time at the racetrack or classic car shows. As avid boaters, they can often be found cruising the Gulf and San Juan Islands enjoying their time exploring with family and friends.
His experience in the automotive industry has taught him the importance of strong and lasting relationships. Adam looks forward to continuing to uphold the professional and respected reputation he has earned over the years.
