Veteran yacht broker Whit Kirtland has joined Northrop & Johnson as a sales broker in its Fort Lauderdale office.

Kirtland is a third-generation maritime professional, with more than 36 years of experience in yacht brokerage. He began his career by working in various shops at Miami’s Merrill-Stevens Shipyard, where his father was in charge. He later worked as a mate on board both an ocean-going tug and a 110-foot (33.5m) Feadship, and spent time in the racing circuit as a “grinder” aboard a 51-foot (15.5m) Swan sailing yacht, according to a news release on the Northrop & Johnson website.

Kirtland has served on the board of directors and as president three times for the International Yacht Brokers Association; as a board member for the International Superyacht Society; and as a Certification Advisory Council board member for the Certified Professional Yacht Brokers.

On a recent Facebook post, Kirtland stated: “Just completed my last sale with Bradford Marine (48m Feadship Audacia), where I represented both the buyer and seller in this deal. It was a great nine years at BMYS. Looking forward to great things with Northrop and Johnson.”
