President/Certified Professional Yacht Broker
Paul Engle joined Bradford Marine in 1993, learned the shipyard business, and transformed the company to provide a full range of services to yacht owners and their captains. Foreseeing the future of the yachting industry, Paul spearheaded the development of Bradford Marine Bahamas on Grand Bahama Island as a full service shipyard in Freeport, including the construction and implementation of a state-of-the-art 1,200 ton floating dry-dock.
Sensing the need of yacht owners and their captains for a full line of services in today’s complex yachting industry, Paul developed the yacht sales division in 2003 and serves as Broker of Record for Bradford Marine Yacht Sales.
Paul attended Virginia Tech University, but took a different career path when he moved to Ft. Lauderdale in 1979. For the next fifteen years, Paul pursued a distinguished career as a Captain of motor yachts, including commanding the Forbes’ corporate yacht, M/Y Highlander. During this period, Captain Engle traveled worldwide and these experiences prepared him well for his service as President of the Bradford Marine family of companies.
