Jeff Erdmann

Fort Lauderdale Yacht Broker

About Me

  • HOME TOWN: Oshkosh, WI
  • FIRST BOAT: Butterfly
  • FIRST JOB: Spellman's Marina
  • LANGUAGES: English


Raised with strong Midwest values, Jeff has been called “one of Florida’s leading marine industry advocates” by Southern Boating Magazine and “one of the top yacht brokers in the USA.”

Hooked on boating at 7, Jeff has a treasure trove of boating experience & memories. Two memorable boating adventures were a 35-day 30,000-mile circumnavigation and West Marine’s “Pacific Cup” nonstop sailboat race from San Francisco to Hawaii. 

As an accomplished yacht broker for more than 30 years, he brings a wealth of experience to the table.

Jeff is a 2015 graduate of the Beneteau Academy with a solid understanding of the construction and features of Beneteau yachts.

Jeff served on the Florida Yacht Brokers Association board of directors as chair of the Public Affairs Committee for 10 years advocating for the marine industry. His accomplishments included doubling the 90-day sales tax exemption to 180 days, Florida’s $18,000 sales tax cap and protecting consumers by maintaining Florida’s Yacht & Ship Brokers Licensing. 

Jeff’s in-depth knowledge of U.S. and Florida regulations and tax laws that affect yachting is invaluable to his clients and peers alike.

A consummate advocate for buyers and sellers, Jeff loves helping clients achieve “two of the happiest days of a boater’s life” and would love to help you achieve yours.
