Carter Picture

Carter Francois:  And introducing Sales Associate Carter Francois (pronounced Frans-swah), he’s young(er), so very enthusiastic and is a big fan of Tollycrafts, being a prior Tollycraft boat owner himself. Carter is a breath of fresh air, with a great perspective on yacht sales, eager to engage with customers, both buyers and sellers alike. He loves boats, likes talking about boats, very happy to show boats, and especially wants to list boats for sale to showcase his marketing background. Upon entering the yacht brokerage community, Carter immediately became a member of the Northwest Yacht Broker’s Association, and is now on the NYBA Grow Boating Committee. Carter has also obtained his CPYB apprenticeship. If you are considering buying or selling your boat anytime soon, definitely give Carter a call, we believe you will appreciate his character, his charisma and knowledge.
