“My passion for boating started at the ripe age of 6 years old. My dad was an avid boater who bought boats, fixed them up, and started the love of boating that my whole family enjoys. Boating has always been in my blood – whether I’m cruising or at anchor with my wife, Mary Jo, daughter Jillian, and son Jack on our 39 Sea Ray Sundancer or out 100 miles offshore running a charter or fishing a tournament.

Like my business partner, Bruce Parker, I started my professional career in the Auto Industry as a Sales/General Manager. After 26 years in the industry, I decided to follow my passion, get my Captain's license, of which I possess a 100 Ton Master License, and get into boat sales and brokerage.

That is where I met Bruce. We handled brokerage for MarineMax on Long Island. We worked very well together and built an honest, trustworthy reputation from Manhattan to Montauk and everywhere in between.

We always go the extra mile for our clients, whether they are our buyer, seller, or both, by walking them through the sometimes very difficult process of boat buying and selling. Nevertheless, it’s always a happy experience on both ends.

More than 10 years later, I have decided to join Bruce on a journey to make boat buying and selling a happy and fun experience. I am looking forward to providing professional services while learning new ways to satisfy our clients!”

“Over the years, my wife and I have had a passion for boats and the water lifestyle, sharing that love with our children as well. After 30 years in the automotive field, I switched to the industry I truly love – boating.

Now over 18 years later, and hundreds of happy clients, I have moved on to have my own company. I am excited to work with Kevin so that we can help hundreds more either sell or buy a boat with ease.

I have an excellent reputation in the industry and work well with all the marinas here on Long Island as well as throughout the rest of the country. I look forward to working with you through the process of buying or selling your boat with professional skills.”

Capt Buddy Benton (Representing the NJ Shore)

As a young boy growing up in the Bronx about 10 years old I knew boating would be a part of my life as I was scraping barnacles off of my grandfathers wooden Chris Craft cabin cruiser. I was always around boats with friends and family as the years went on.

About 24 years ago I started my business as a financial advisor and it was stressful. I was newly married to my wife Monica and we had our first child Nicholas at the time and one day we rented a little boat with a 20HP outboard motor. My wife said “I never saw you so relaxed”. It was then we realized we need a boat for the family. 

During the past 15 years we owned 3 brand new Formula boats, a 280SS, 34PC , 40PC and now a 50ft flybridge boat. I am now the “go to” guy with friends and family for anyone that needs a boat. As a licensed master captain I run up and down the east coast helping clients move their boats to different locations. I would also work tirelessly to help you along with my partners, Kevin and Bruce to help you sell your boat and/or find the perfect boat.

Capt Eric Jahrnes (Representing Western LI, Staten Island and Northern NJ)

Born into the world of boating, My grandfather owned a party boat out of captree and my father ran a charter boat out of freeport. So instinctively boating was my passion. I've been on boats my whole life and was running offshore fishing since my early teens. I received my coast guard 50 ton masters license at the age of 25 and have been running all types of boats since then. From cruising up the hudson to chasing tuna 100 miles offshore. Boating is my passion.

As a boat owner myself I feel the need to know every inch of the boat and do my own maintenance, therefore I also possess a full knowledge of the workings of a the engines and electrical systems. I co-own a Charter boat business with my brother Bobby, Prime Reel Estate Charters and run a 35 Viking for inshore and off shore trips.

Now I am diving into another aspect of the boating world finding people the perfect boat.

your questions along the way. I co-own a Charter boat business with my brother Eric, Prime Reel Estate Charters and run a 35 Viking for inshore and off shore trips.

Keith Graffagnino (Representing Long Island and NY)

Boating has been a part of my life from an early age. Whether it was together as a family or fishing in the canyons with my Dad and my brother Kevin, we made great memories together.

When raising our family, My wife Danielle and I wanted to impart the same experiences I had growing up with my Daughters, Alexa, Olivia and Ava, and boating became a way of life for us!! We started with a 27 ft Rinker and soon after grew into a 33ft Rinker. Weekends at the beach and endless cruising to different destinations made me realize that my passion for boating was taking me in directions I never imagined and now I am going to be part of selling boats and will be going for my Capt's license to do lessons and transports. The experiences I have had on the water motivates me to expand into what I have wanted to do my whole life, be on the water always.

Boating has a special place in my heart and I look forward to helping you sell or buy your next boat so you can create the same traditions with your family. I want to help you do what we at Yacht Finders do best, Put the Fun back in boating!!
