Tom Corkett, Sales Brokers - Newport Beach N&J

Tom Corkett

Yacht Broker

My Present 
Hi. My name is Thomas Corkett. I have been a yacht broker with Northrop & Johnson since 2016.

Working from the Newport Beach office. I sell yachts in all different size ranges, from power and sailing yachts. I represent both buyers and sellers. I have been in the Yacht Brokerage business for 55 years.

My Past
I have been a life-long boater, both professionally and as a hobby. My career in Yacht Sales started in my mid-20s and I’ve been selling yachts ever since. I worked primarily with Ardell Yacht Sales for 50 years before joining Northrop & Johnson in 2016.

My Future
I plan to stay in the yachting industry, if possible. I love working with buyers by helping
them find the right boat for their needs. It gives me personal satisfaction.

My Motto
“Nothing beats an ocean breeze and family laughter.”

My Outside-office Life
My life outside the office is enjoying boating with my family and my ten grandchildren. I currently own a 58 Motor Yacht for family trips and cruises. My early passions were sailing and offshore ocean races.

Fast Facts

  • I have competed in 20 Trans-Pac Races from Los Angeles to Hawaii
  • I was the youngest skipper to win the Trans-Pac overall at 21 years old in 1963
  • Sailing is still a passion of mine and always will be
