Northrop & Johnson Sales Broker Kristen Engelmann-Klein is an MBA graduate of the University of Florida, where she acquired a superb set of business skills as well as a broad base of technical skills. These unique and valuable assets will undoubtedly allow her to provide her clients with the most professional experience when buying or selling a yacht.
Prior to obtaining her MBA, Kristen worked as a chief stewardess on both private and charter yachts for six years. She cruised Alaska and the Pacific Northwest, the Caribbean, Bahamas and the U.S. East Coast. She also cruised around the world, traveling from Nassau, Bahamas to San Diego, California, aboard M/V EXPLORER during Semester at Sea, a global study abroad program.
As a chief stewardess, Kristen managed several interior refits. Her greatest achievement in yachting was being a part of the team that rebuilt the 154-foot ex-M/Y OHANA charter program from the ground up. Working with designers all over the world, Kristen helped successfully manage the re-launch of one of the most popular charter yachts in the industry from 2011 to 2013.
Originally from Clearwater, Florida, Kristen now resides in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Her passion for yachting as well as her strong work ethic and continuous desire to conquer difficult challenges are assets to any client looking to buy or sell a yacht.
Kristen is an active member of the International Superyacht Society (ISS) and the International Yacht Brokers Association (IYBA) and currently serves on the Board of Directors for both. She also is a current member of the ISS Gala Committee. Outside of yachting, she is committed to serving the community, and serves on the Board of Directors for the Broward Public Library Foundation.
