Mike Webster becomes sole proprietor
Mike’s affinity for boats was destined at birth, boats and boating a family legacy. Hailing from Charlevoix, MI, his parents’ families were involved in Great Lakes boat building, shipping and cruising. In the 1950s, Mike’s father, mother and sister Wendy moved to Miami, where Mike was born, and his dad continued work as a yacht captain. Captain C. S. Webster took the family on many enjoyable boat trips to New England, the Great Lakes, and the Florida Keys. On these trips and over the years, Mike’s father taught him invaluable knowledge about boats, cruising, and the boating lifestyle.
Mike grew up on Richard Bertram’s docks on the Miami River, enjoyed fishing and swimming in South Florida waterways, and sailing at Miami’s Dinner Key/Coconut Grove on Biscayne Bay. These treasured experiences, along with his father’s guidance, enhanced Mike’s inborn passion for boats and boating, water and nature.
Mike moved to Jacksonville in 1980 and while attending college, he worked for a real estate title company, and Huckins Yacht Corporation. He began his sales career at Herb White Marine in Jacksonville and was involved with the first Yamaha USA outboard sales and a great number of vessel types and brands, followed by sales/management positions at a classic “Mom & Pop” dealership, and a Jacksonville Sea Ray dealership.
In 1991, Mike joined Hansen Yachts, a well-established premier dealership-for Californian, Bertram, and Hatteras-and brokerage firm widely recognized in the marine industry, a thriving business setting that granted, in fact, demanded expertise with diverse vessel types and marine industry involvement
In 2019, Mike became the sole proprietor and owner of Hansen Yachts—conveniently located at Lambs Marina. Mike has always recognized the importance and value of marine service, waterfront facility-based operation. Drawing on insight from past affiliations with a nationwide public boat sales company and a large brokerage house, his philosophy is founded on a personalized one-on-one approach, with one stand-alone location.
Boats and boating have always tugged at Mike’s heart, leading to his accomplished 30+ year career in boat sales and brokerage–an enviable opportunity to combine work, passion, and responsibility. Beginning with the first contact, Mike is laser-focused on customer satisfaction and creating a pleasurable experience for both buyer and seller. Perhaps it’s simply intuitive… after all, it’s called “pleasure boating.” His success is evidenced by numerous, loyal repeat customers, and referrals.
Known for his calm, straightforward, candid, and results-oriented approach, one customer lauded Mike with this compliment: “A good broker like you can have a great, positive effect on one’s quality of life.” With his expertise and extensive experience in the boating industry, Mike continues to go the “extra nautical mile” to meet and exceed his customers’ boating needs and expectations.
Mike resides with his wife Lindsay on Fishweir Creek in Jacksonville’s “Avondale” neighborhood.
Mike learned the love of the boats at an early age as he grew up around the water and was a 20-year member of the Boston Yacht Club in Marblehead, MA. Well experienced in Offshore Yacht racing and “Round the Buoys” day racing, as well as transiting the Intracoastal from the North to the South many times.
After years of business obligations and extensive travel around the Far East, Mike, his wife Jackie and their two Chihuahuas settled in Palm Coast Florida. In 2004 he joined MarineMax as a Yacht Broker at their Jacksonville, FL location. Looking for a more personal and hands-on experience he joined the Hansen Yachts Team as a Yacht Broker. Knowledgeable and experienced in all aspects of both power and sail, Mike will be able to assist you in the sale or purchase of your next vessel while ensuring that the vessel is the correct choice and the transaction goes smoothly.
