Christian Brabender

Christian found his love of water and of boating early on, having grown up on the water, on the North Shore of Long Island. He had his first boat at the age of 12 and has never looked back.

As a 25-year marine industry veteran, Christian has an Undergraduate Degree in Finance from St John’s University and attended Dowling College for Graduate Studies.

He is known for his heartfelt commitment to his customers, as well as his belief in always delivering on his promises. He works closely with his clients so that they are fully trained on the boat that best suits their lifestyle. He regularly invests the time to drive their boats to and from New York and Florida.

Having worked with several major brands, Christian possesses diverse product knowledge. His technical know-how along with his strong product and industry knowledge is an asset to his clients. His relationship with his clients is well known, as many turn into friendships on the water.

Chris makes an effort to be on a boat every day of the season.

He and his wife, Gia, have a daughter, Kayla, and a son, CJ, who also share a passion for boating.
