by Malcolm MacLean
A call to Mike Carlson in Fort Lauderdale brings news that he and Nicholas Scherb opened the doors of a new brokerage house last week called 26° North Yacht Sales.
Mike is an active member of the Florida Yacht Brokers Association, staying up to date with the continuous changes in the industry. He has been directly involved in all phases of a yacht purchase whether for private use or charter.
Originally from Chicago, Mike received a degree from Salve Regina University in Newport Rhode Island that later brought him to Europe to work on private yachts professionally. His travels have brought him all over the world where he continues to follow market trends and be up-to-date on the most current builds available.
Nicholas Scherb’s knowledge of yachts and yachting has been earned thorough a lifetime on the water. Summers on Lake Geneva, WI were spent racing scows and cruising on the family’s runabout. After graduating from Indiana University, with a degree in finance, he pursued a career as a yacht captain during which he attained a 500 ton master’s license. His worldwide traveling and time onboard has given him intimate knowledge of many different builders and all of the different systems onboard yachts. His persistence in fitting his clients with the right boat allows them to focus on their passion for yachting.
