JEFF NICKLASON: 410.941.4847[email protected]

Jeff is a lifelong Maryland resident and grew up on the water in Annapolis.  He joined the AYS Crew in the Fall of 2020 as a Yacht Broker because of the tight knit, family-oriented culture of the company. He believes that each client should be 100% satisfied with their entire boat buying experience from their first call to their delivery day. When Jeff is not working, he is usually fishing on The Bay or creating abstract oil paintings.
