Broker Jeff Erdmann has joined Allied Marine as a sales executive.

Erdmann was president of Bollman Yachts in Ft. Lauderdale for the past 13 years and has been on the Florida Yacht Brokers Association board of directors and Public Affairs Committee.

“Jeff accomplished the seemingly impossible task of getting politicians to agree on a sales tax cap for yachts, which has helped the industry and buyers alike,” said Kent Chamberlain, founder of the Superyacht Network.

Born in Wisconsin, he got hooked on boating at an early age. He is married and the father of two sons. Contact him at Ferretti Group America, 1445 S.E. 16th St., Ft. Lauderdale, 33316, +1 954-494-4320, or
