Meet Yachts360 Broker John Sima
This week we spoke with John Sima to discuss his extensive career in the marine industry, the decision to move from Ohio to Florida, and his time as a member of the Yachts360 team.
Where is your hometown and where are you currently based?
I was born in Cleveland, Ohio and have lived there for most of my life. In 2019, my wife Anne and I moved to Apollo Beach, Florida which is on Tampa Bay. When we decided to move, we knew it had to be on the water so we could have a boat available to use at any time. We currently have a 28’ center console on a lift behind our house and use it regularly.
What originally sparked your interest in further pursuing boating as a career?
What sectors of the marine industry have you participated in throughout your career?
I have worked and participated in all aspects of the marine industry including being a boat dealer, broker, marina owner, local marine trade association(LEMTA) member/chairman, National Marine Trade Association (MRAA) member and chairman, and Eastlake Ohio Port Authority member and chairman.
