Barry Flanigan was raised in Narberth, Pennsylvania and got his taste for salt water as a young boy in Ocean City, New Jersey. He has since spent a lifetime either on, in or near the water. Barry moved to Fort Lauderdale in the 1970’s where he met and married his wife, Kathi.
President and owner of Gutters Unlimited, Barry sold his successful company in 2002 and continued consulting in that industry until recently. During that time, he has also been a commercial real estate developer.
Barry is currently Chairman of the Marine Advisory Board to the City of Fort Lauderdale and has served on that board for many years. This enables him to be up close and personal in the decision making process concerning the marine industry. Barry is also a current member of the Winterfest Board of Directors and previously served on the Beach Redevelopment Board in Fort Lauderdale. Barry’s boating friends in South Florida have fueled his passion for the yachting industry, and his pursuit of personal knowledge of boats and yachts continues.
In addition to their five children, Barry and Kathi have eight grandchildren, and they all enjoy fishing and diving in the Florida Middle Keys.
Barry became a friend of Bradford Marine several years ago and was delighted to be invited to become a member of the Bradford Marine Yacht Sales Team. He is based in our Fort Lauderdale headquarters and works with our Team as a knowledgeable Yacht Broker who is ready and able to assist both sellers and buyers in their search for the perfect yacht.
