Chuck Pickover was born and raised in Miami, and has always been drawn to the water. From early childhood, he has had a passion for the sea, and has been cruising, diving, and fishing ever since. He started his career in Yacht Sales while living in Key Biscayne, FL in 1985 after meeting a successful yacht broker while attending a friends family function. Intrigued by the idea, he put on a coat and tie and started knocking on doors. Although Chuck did not have much sales experience at the time, the president of the local Hatteras dealer, now known as The Allied Marine Group, appreciated his enthusiasm and took him on board where he spent the next 17 years in a successful career selling a wide range of product.

From there he spent two years at Lazzara yachts before starting his own brokerage company, CMP Yacht Sales. After two years he formed a partnership with Sun Power Diesel and Marine and combined his brokerage business with Sun Power's small local Rampage sport fishing dealership.

Within two years, Chuck built the dealership up to the nations leading dealer where it remained until the 2007 economic downturn. Watching the declining sport fishing market, Chuck and his partner decided to liquidate their inventory and close the dealership. In the few previous years, Chuck had the opportunity to cruise on several Nordhavn yachts and really loved and appreciated the cruising knowledge and the experiences these owners shared. While winding down the Rampage dealership, he started discussions with Yacht Tech which had a very successful Nordhavn service business and sold a few pre-owned Nordhavn yachts a year.

Recognizing the potential and loving the product, Chuck became the head broker, really learned the product, and in a few short years, dramatically increased the companies brokerage Nordhavn sales volume. After Yacht Tech, he continued Nordhavn sales working directly for Nordhavn Yachts. Always looking for a new challenge, Chuck had been watching the success and growth of Rick Obey and Associates over the last few years. Hearing that the company was planning to open another location in the Palm Beaches, he joined the firm, and is excited to bring the Sunseeker experience, and excellent brokerage service to the area.
