Headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., FB Marine Group has added a luxury yacht sales division. The news was announced in a press release from the full-service new- and pre-owned multi-line powerboat dealership.
Yacht broker Shawn Johnson will head the company’s newest division. According to the release, Johnson is a lifelong boating enthusiast who previously owned and captained a 63-foot Hatteras Motor Yacht. Before entering the yacht brokerage world, Johnson sold luxury high-rise condominiums for the 13 years in South Florida, and he remains active in the real estate world.
