John D was born and raised on the coast of N.C. He grew up in a commercial fishing family. He’s been on boats since he can remember. He has built, lived, and worked on boats. Riggs has been in the yacht brokerage business since 1997 after a friend told him, “Find the one thing you love to do in life and figure out a way to make a living doing it, and you will be successful.” Being close to the water, boats and being around salty people was the one thing that always made him happy. He was living in Morehead City, N.C. at the time when he was asked to help start a Yacht brokerage in Wrightsville Beach, N.C. Riggs’ favorite part of the business is meeting wonderful people and making friends. John D is married to his best friend Robin and a proud father of two beautiful kids, Ella and Grayson. John D’s other marine related experiences include: Marine Engine rebuilds, Diving, Commercial Fishing, Yacht deliveries, and Tournament fishing.

John D offers his clients assistance with boat handling, deliveries and understanding the mechanics of their boat. Please visit us at Riggs Yacht Sales for a personal touch to the yachting experience.
