Ian was raised in Greensboro, spending his summers on the coast of NC in Beaufort. During those summers, Ian discovered his love for the water. He spent most days on the water, fishing and exploring the Crystal Coast. He started his first job detailing boats at Town Creek Marina when he was 15 years old, commuting down Taylor’s Creek on his skiff. The following summer he started working as a dock hand at Olde Towne Yacht Club and remained there each summer until starting college at UNCW. Before leaving for college, Ian spent his last month at Greensboro Day School doing his senior project at Shearline Boatworks where he realized his passion for custom boatbuilding. While at UNCW he worked at Atlantic Marine and finished his college career working at Johnson Custom Boats doing restorations and refits. Ian was also involved in their family business, NCboatinglifestyle magazine. The magazine gave him opportunities to visit various boat builders, manufacturers, and dealers across North Carolina and stay involved in the boating community. Ian spends most of his spare time on the water and surrounded by boats. Let Ian’s sales experience and knowledge of boats work for you!
