Longtime captain joins Merle Wood

Capt. Brent Holleman has joined Merle Wood & Associates as a South Florida broker specializing in sales and charter of yachts from 40 feet to 150 feet.

Capt. Holleman, who has a 200-ton MCA/RYA Yachtmaster license and USCG 500-ton Master Merchant Marine Officer license, has logged thousands of nautical miles throughout the Atlantic and Pacific oceans during more than 30 years as a captain, according to a company press release. He most recently captained M/Y Cedar Island, a 106-foot Lazzara.

As a boy, Holleman raced sailboats in Miami and later sailed around the world with his family on a 45-foot ketch, according to the company.

Holleman said his focus is on helping clients find the best possible yacht, and to make the experience as enjoyable and stress-free as possible.

“I know which questions to ask, and with my knowledge acquired as a full-time captain, I can really assist and guide them in finding the right yacht for their specific needs to ensure they will enjoy their time on the water,” Capt. Holleman stated.
