Peter moved from Toledo, Ohio to Fort Lauderdale in 1993 to pursue his passion for boats after he purchased a 20’ Hawaiian jet boat instead of a car he planned to buy that same day. Custom Marine Sales opened its doors and did the internal sales for some of the most influential people in the High Performance Boating business including Doller Offshore, Bobby Moores, and TNT Custom Marine over the years. Peter spent his childhood years around his fathers Porsche Service Center and a huge part of his success has been due to his mechanical knowledge of engines, transmissions, electrical, and gearing. Pete expanded his horizons to all makes, models, and brands of boats when he started to customize boats for customers including diesel applications with surface drives that had never been tried before. Pete has built more custom and unique applications for clients than any Broker in South Florida history. Custom Marine Sales also evolved into a service operation at the request of brokerage clients. Today Custom Marine Sales sells and services everything including Tenders, Center Consoles, High Performance and Mega Yachts.
Custom Marine Sales is located in the boating Capital of the World, Fort Lauderdale, FL. This location was specifically chosen because of its convenient access to parts suppliers, painters, boat ramps, travel lifts, and Port Everglades for fast efficient service of domestic and International clients.
Peter prides himself on his relationships and servicing of the most discerning of clients and has been a build manager and consultant for too many new boats to name. Clients that want to build highly customized boats to meet their particular application but simply don’t have the time or expertise to do the job themselves call on Pete and his crew.
