David Knight


David Knight has worked in the boating industry for over 10 years and has been boating since a young age. He grew up in Jacksonville, FL, fishing the intercoastal waterways and offshore waters of North Florida. His family owned a 28’ Wellcraft Walkaround and they would often take weekend trips to St. Augustine and overnights offshore fishing. Today he mostly enjoys the inshore waterways of St. Augustine, fishing the creeks and cruising with his wife Lianna and daughter Addison.

Prior to working in the brokerage business, David’s career was in the telecommunications industry. His first job after graduating with a business degree at Florida State University was an outside sales position with a long distance company. He was able to quickly advance his career into sales management and spent several years with T-Mobile as their regional director of business sales in TX.

2008 to present have been some of the most challenging times in the boat business and David has been very successful despite the times. “The most important part of the business is prompt and honest communication” he states. “People want to actually talk to someone when they pick up the phone or send a text or email. They want to see detailed photographs and accurate and thorough inventory of the boat they are looking at. Buyers can be many miles away or across the world and often times they are making a decision based on the advertisement that you put together. The internet has really changed the way boats are found and bought, and has actually made the experience easier for both buyer and seller. People really are not “walking the docks” to look for boats anymore.” David works hard to stay on top of the market so he can give honest and accurate advice to his clients whether they are buying or selling a boat.

David enjoys what he does, and when you love what you do you don’t work a day in your life. He genuinely enjoys helping clients find the right boat that fits their family’s needs, or selling their boat so they can search for the next one. You can be confident that you will have a good experience if you work with David to sell your boat or buy your next one!
