Chris Coleman

A Fort Lauderdale native, Chris has been drawn to the water for as long as he can remember. Growing up on Fort Lauderdale beach and later on Lake Lanier in Georgia, he spent the majority of his summers on the coastline and aboard his friends' boats when he was not engaged in year-round soccer.

He attended the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL and graduated in 2011 with a Bachelor's Degree in Telecommunications. Chris spent the better part of four years as an on-air radio personality and station director while completing his studies. He later took on a role as the Regional Director of a student travel company, where his experiences during undergrad really began to be leveraged, organizing large-scale weekend trips and spring break migrations.

Chris was recently brought on board to help open a commercial marine division of Oversea Yacht Insurance, where he has used his years of customer service and networking experience to help his clients. Having started this department from scratch, he has taken a customer-centric, analytical approach in assessing his client's needs, while still maintaining an extremely active presence in the Yachting Industry. Chris joined YPY in 2017 and is currently also a member of the International Yacht Brokers Association(IYBA).
