Jim grew up in Boca Raton and has been an avid boater since an early age. During high school he got into photography and SCUBA diving and this launched him into a lifelong love of the ocean and life as a watersman. Acquiring his Captain’s License, he has been a dive, yacht delivery, and rescue captain. Today being a Yacht broker for many years Jim has a broad knowledge of vessels and power systems.

Always willing to share his resources, gives his clients a comfort level they are looking for. With a keen eye for media, photography, videos, and advertising presenting your vessel is very important to me.

Customer satisfaction is always the priority in a yacht transition while building business and friendship one boat at a time.

Jim Derks

I recently purchased a Cruisers Yacht from Rick Obey and Associates. Just like any other large purchase these have a lot of moving parts. I had the pleasure of working with Jim Derks. Jim helped make the process as smooth as possible. We did have a few speed bumps along the way. These can be expected when working with sellers you don't know.

Jim treated my sale as if it were of top dollar and never hesitated to respond or keep me updated. I was purchasing long distance and felt as if Jim truly was my onsite representation.

I would recommend anyone in the market to work with Rick Obey.

Hi Rick,

Although we have not personally met, we have been working with Jim Derks since the Newport Boat Show in September. This is when we found our new boat, a 2014 450 Sundancer.

In working with Jim, he represented your company well and professionally. During many conversations, he spoke of you highly, as well your overall company. Jim is definitely an asset to your staff.

Also, towards the end of the deal, we started working more closely with Ashley. We found her to be also very professional and meticulous with the paperwork, etc.

We will be keeping in touch with Jim for our next upgrade in a couple of years. :)

Best of luck at the upcoming Fort Lauderdale Boat Show.

Thank you!

Best regards,
Scott and Deb Soucey
Avon, CT
