Although born in Manhattan, N.Y., Joe Majcherek is basically a South Florida native having been raised fishing and boating on the waterways and beaches of Ft. Lauderdale. After college at University of South Florida in Tampa, he worked in Ft.

A passion for water-sports and enthusiasm about boating helped launch this career.
In 1991, Joe was invited to join Gilman Yachts Palm Beach where his first office was at the Sailfish Marina on Singer Island. Throughout the 90’s he was an active participant in the Palm Beach brokerage culture and regularly involved in the offshore fishing community. In the year 2000, Joe became a partner and opened Gilman Yachts of Ft. Lauderdale along with veteran broker Jeff Stanley. Gilman Yachts of Ft. Lauderdale hit the ground running and has been a growing success story. In 2006, the purchase of a new office suite on SE 17th Street hosting a diversified staff of seasoned brokers has further solidified the firm.
Being an avid diver and fisherman, his extensive boating travels throughout the Caribbean and Eastern Seaboard provides his clients with the benefits of experienced advice. He has also had extensive experience with assisting clients outfitting and exporting boats to exotic locations throughout the world. Personalized service, during and after the sale, has earned him many return customers & referrals.
