About Me

About Hal Slater, CPYBIn the fall of 2005, I transitioned to Brewer Yacht Sales after serving for the previous twenty-seven years in various sales and marketing positions in the hardware industry (including seventeen years at Stanley Tools and ten years with Milwaukee Electric Tool) in pursuit of building a new career from my passion for �the boating lifestyle�. Despite my success in these positions, my wonderful and supportive wife Melissa and our three great children supported my decision, as they also enjoy cruising on the New England coast and spending time on the water.
I accepted the offer to manage the Brewer Yacht Sales office in Branford, Connecticut in July of 2006. It was an easy decision for me �I find assisting others in their boat ownership extremely rewarding because I can witness firsthand the enjoyment their new boat brings.
Through diligent work, I've earned multiple Brewer Yacht Sales awards ranging from �Team Spirit� awards to �Most Boats Sold� awards. I have also consecutively received the Brewer Yacht Sales �Broker of the Year/Top Producer" Award for 2007,2008,2009,2010,2011,2012 & 2013 averaging 45 sold boats per year. I am also proud to be a member of the Yacht Brokers Association of America and have earned the accreditation of a Certified Professional Yacht Broker (CPYB).
In the fall of 2007 I was a guest speaker at the NAMS �National Association of Marine Surveyors� Educational Seminar and presented �Vessel Surveys from the Broker�s Perspective�. In addition, I was elected to the Board of Directors of YBAA �Yacht Brokers Association of America� in February of 2009 and I am currently serving as Vice President during 2014
I hope you will enjoy my consultative approach to buying and selling; I truly look forward to serving you!
