John Thomson Joins SYS Yacht Sales’ Palm Beach Office

« Return to Previous Page

Team SYS is excited to announce the addition of John Thomson as a Yacht Sales Professional to our Palm Beach office. John has 20-years of professional experience in the yachting industry. Born in Washington, DC and raised in Northern Virginia, he has a passion for the maritime industry. John said, “The destiny started at a young age on my family’s boat where we spent entire weekends fishing, cruising and enjoying the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay.”

John obtained his first license in 1994 to captain fishing charters and ferry boats. By 1997 John became the first officer on a 130-foot motor vessel and learned the private yacht industry. Managing four tenders and a yacht’s maintenance and budget was a good foundation to develop forward thinking and problem-solving skills that progressed over the years. John managed refits on Feadship, Viking Princess, Hatteras, Sunseeker and Broward yachts. John continued to build his yachting foundation, learning about boat building techniques as it rapidly changed when technology made its way into the yachting industry.

Today, after years of traveling the United States, Bahamas and Caribbean in the professional yachting industry, John brings his experience to SYS Yacht Sales in buying, selling, trading and donating.
