About: Pete Peters
I spent most of my youth and adulthood in Virginia Beach . I took up fishing and boating at an early age with my grandfather. In my high school days I got into hunting, particularly duck hunting. A graduate of Frank W. Cox High School, and Virginia Wesleyan College with honors.
In 2001, we moved to Poquoson where we raised our 2 girls and we currently reside. My wife Trish tries to keep me straight, which many of my friends think she should get an award.
In 1981, I combined my hobby of boating and work, by getting in the boat business as Sales Manager at Lynnhaven Dry Storage in Virginia Beach. Afterwards, in 1987 I joined Norfolk Marine Co. until 1998. Many of those clients and old friends who bought Grady White boats and Carolina Classics are still with me today. However in 1998, I joined Bluewater Yacht Sales, as a broker. Quite a change ,bigger boats, but never losing the perspective of helping my clients. I learned a lot about big yachts and how to represent both buyers and sellers.
In February of 2015, I took a whole direction and at the age of 61, by opening my own dealership and becoming only accountable to myself, family and my clients. It’s quite a new feeling and a new prospective in doing business and life. Totally different than running someone else’s business and one of the first goals was to give back to the community on my terms. You’ll see the charities that we’re donating too. Thank you for taking your time to read about the company and thank you if you have bought from AYS. Pete
