Northrop & Johnson Yacht Broker Jakob Gradisek started his career in yachting at the age of 16, when he immigrated from his home in Slovenia to the British Virgin Islands in the West Indies. He completed several long-distance crossings and passages while working as a deckhand, and eventually a delivery-captain in the Caribbean, along US East Coast, and in the Mediterranean.
Jakob transitioned into the brokerage sector of the yachting industry in 2017, when he moved to the United States for a position with Nicholson Yachts. He has since developed a unique and personal approach to deal-making resulting in several successful transactions in new-build and yacht transfer sectors.
Jakob relocated to Palma de Mallorca in 2018 to establish a Mediterranean presence for Nicholson Yachts. In 2019 he joined Northrop & Johnson’s Palma brokerage team enabling him to upscale his international yacht practice with the support of a large global brokerage. In his spare time, Jakob is a keen petrol head and classic car enthusiast as well as an accomplished surfer.
