SYS Palm Beach
Superyacht Broker+1 561-300-7406
Licensed yacht salesman, Paul is Director of SYS’s Palm Beach office and the current President of the Florida Yacht Brokers Association (FYBA). His many years of service, including his former ownership of Flannery Yacht Sales, provide him with a fantastic foundation to build the SYS brand on Florida’s East Coast. While he has extensive experience in many areas of yachting, in recent years he has leaned significantly toward the cruising markets. Pilothouse Motor yachts and Downeast cruisers are his primary focus, although he still remains close to his roots in the fishing business.
Paul has enjoyed over 30 years in the marine industry and has been a licensed yacht broker in Florida since 1992. He holds a USCG 500 ton Masters license and has served as Captain in various locations from Portland, to Maine, to the US Virgin Islands. He has owned and operated his own brokerage/dealership/service center for 8 years and is a past board member of the Northeast Florida Marine Industries Association.
“Our search for that perfect power cruiser took well over two years. During that search we made contact with many brokers. The qualities we looked for most in choosing a broker are honesty and integrity. We found both with Paul Flannery. Being a new boating couple we had many ideas of what we wanted and needed in that perfect cruiser. Paul listened carefully and guided us through the many options and decisions available and on more than one occasion Paul proved his honesty by diplomatically and delicately talking us “off the ledge” on a decision we were about to make. Paul is now our broker of choice and has earned a “highly recommend” to anyone needing a broker.”
