Brent Holleman's love for the sea started at an early age when he became a young sailor racing sailboats at the local yacht club in Miami, Florida. He continued to learn about boating from his father, a restauranteur and captain, grandfather, who was an avid fisherman, and grandmother, who was a yacht broker.
In his younger years, Brent and his family set out to sail around the world on a 45’ ketch, where he began mastering the fundamentals of seamanship and navigation and learned the demands of the sea, cruising, outfitting and maintaining yachts. After a year of great experiences and lessons exploring the Bahamas, Virgin Islands, Leeward and Windward Islands of the Caribbean, he came home to attend college and help run the family business, where he became a noted and very successful gourmet chef and restaurateur whose training took him all over North America and Europe.
He kept his skills honed over the coming years by owning and bareboat chartering 40-60’ power and sailing vessels. In 2001 Brent put his interest in the sea back in first place when he retired from the restaurant business and reestablished himself as a yacht broker and yacht captain. He received his 200-ton MCA/RYA Yachtmaster license, and USCG 500-ton Master Merchant Marine Officer license, and most recently captain on a fleet of incredible yachts such as: Feadship, 9X Pershing, Lazzara and Ocean Alexander, and is also a certified diver.
He has logged thousands of nautical miles over the East Coast of the United States, Bahamas, Caribbean, Atlantic and Pacific oceans. In the summer, he loves sailing and working on his Pearson sloop in the Long Island Sound with his family and friends.
Today Brent has partnered with Atlantic Yacht and Ship, where he focuses on helping people buy, sell, charter and run their boats to the highest standards, while cruising the oceans making great friends in quaint ports and great anchorages.
“As part of my effort to connect people to the sea, I strive to make sure everyone’s experience is an enjoyable and stress-free seamless process, while guiding and assisting them to find the best possible yacht,” Brent says. “I know the questions to ask customers, and with my knowledge acquired as a captain and high end service provider, I can really assist and guide them in finding the best yacht for their specific desires and needs that will bring them a lifetime of pleasure and enjoyment on the water.”
