Ryan Miller, Yacht Broker, Owner
Ryan’s passion for boating began at an early age as he explored Barnegat Bay in his 14 foot wooden rowboat. By age 14 he was working as a dockhand at a local yacht club and as a youth sailing instructor. After relocating from New Jersey to Rhode Island to attend college, he realized that living in Newport was a move in the right direction, and he’s never looked back. Ryan earned an M.B.A. from Salve Regina University in 2007. Ryan has worked for Vanguard Sailboats and Sailing Specialties, where he has gained valuable experience in boat sales and customer service. While at Sailing Specialties he achieved awards for top sales while managing the Bristol, RI office. Ryan is committed to the community, being appointed as a City of Newport Waterfront Commissioner and Secretary of the Newport Maritime Alliance, positions which broadens his knowledge and expertise in the marine industry. Ryan also holds a U.S.C.G. Master Captains License. Currently Ryan is the proud owner of a 22’ wooden Pulsifer-Hampton built in Harpswell, Maine. He’s often seen giving harbor tours in and around Narragansett Bay. Look for “Barnegat” named after the body of water that started it all.
Tim Norton, Yacht Broker, CPYB
Tim has been a sailor since his childhood in northern New Jersey, where he sailed a Sunfish and a Duster on local inland lakes. After a stint in the Navy and a career in law enforcement and security services, Tim joined Eastern Yacht Sales in Portsmouth, RI. EYS is a multi-location dealer for Catalina, Jeanneau, Bavaria, Island Packet, and Mainship Trawlers. He has also represented a dealer selling Beneteau. Tim bought his first boat with auxiliary power, an O’Day 25, when he moved to Rhode Island in 1980. Since then, he has sailed an O’Day 28, Nonsuch 30, and Nonsuch 33. His current boat is Consensus, a navy-hulled Moody CC 42. Tim has been a regular ‘club’ racer in Rhode Island and Chicago, and has crewed for several long-distance races aboard a C&C 37 as well as piloting multiple bareboat cruises in the Caribbean. He’s sailed the Atlantic coast as far north as Maine and south to the Virgin Islands. Tim holds a USCG captain’s license and is a certified professional yacht broker. Tim believes that selling boats is about matching clients with the right boat for their needs. He takes the time to know his customers, their sailing experience, and the features and options they want in a boat. He’s fastidious about the care and maintenance of his sailboat. He’s tried most products for finishing teak, polishing fiberglass, cleaning the bilge and most other sailboat chores. Ask him about his recommendations.
