Bobby Stotler was born in Miami where he started boating with his family from Biscayne Bay to the Florida Keys. From his early teen years he lived in Fort Lauderdale at the end of the New River, and started in the boat business renting Jet Skis and small boats on Fort Lauderdale beach. From there, his passion for boating and the vast networks he began to build had him off to Europe, the Atlantic seaboard, Bahamas, Caribbean, and the Great Lakes as a deckhand, first officer, and captain of both private and charter yachts. A two year position as VP of Cigarette Racing in Miami provided the launch pad for a brokerage career in 2000. With decades of relationship building and a history of vast experience in overseeing countless refit projects Bobby is familiar with all phases of construction, maintenance, and operations - including logistics, provisioning, and crew management. Stotler Yachts became the natural extension of all of Bobby's experience, networking with global partners, and yachting passions. Plus, he looks like a cross between Joshua Slocum and Jules Verne.
