Experience

Brian Commette grew up in the boatbuilding town of Bristol, RI where his first paying job was in a boatyard. Family sports included sailing and skiing. With his brothers he raced a 23' keelboat. The family later cruised New England in a larger wooden yawl. Living near the water, it was as important to have a skiff with an outboard motor as it was to have a bicycle. While in college, summers were spent working in a local boatyard. Winters gave an opportunity for competitive skiing with some success. By junior year, Commette was nationally ranked in Nordic competition (cross-country and ski jumping). Following college, the career track defaulted back into boatyards with some management responsibilities.

He learned a competence with all of the trades: mechanical, fiberglass, rigging and electrical. It was an easy transition to yacht brokerage. During his twenty-five years in yacht brokerage with Northrop & Johnson, Commette has served as both as board member and president of the Yacht Brokers Association of America (YBAA). He has also worked tirelessly with the Certified Professional Yacht Broker program, serving as Chairman and now in the position Of Counsel. His professionalism and his knowledge of yachts and their systems has proven to be of great value to his loyal clients.
