FRANK WISE

Yacht Broker - UYS New Jersey

609.408.6857

Frank Wise was born and raised in Cape May, NJ, one of the east coast's largest commercial fishing communities. His love for fishing and boating was instilled in him at a very young age. Spending time on the docks, packing out boats and cleaning fish as a young boy led Frank to follow his family footsteps into the commercial fishing industry. After graduating high school, Frank Spent 10 years working on various commercial fishing boats which included clamming, bunker seining, long-lining and gill netting.

Frank then transitioned from commercial fishing to an opportunity at the Canyon Club Marine service center. He successfully worked his way from a yard guy to running the 50 ton, 30 ton and 15 ton travel lifts. This gave him the chance to learn firsthand how to maneuver boats ranging from 20' to multimillion dollar 65' yachts for 6 years. Frank then transitioned to the outfitting department.

For the next 5 years, he learned how to do fiberglass repair and marine electronics installations. After 11 years at the Canyon club, Frank was hired at Schooner Island Marina where he spent 10 years working in all aspects of the service department. Eventually he worked his way up to Service Manager.

In 2009, Frank took the incredible opportunity to work with his close friend, Scott White, as a part of United Yacht Sales. He hasn't looked back since. Since becoming part of the team, he has helped the New Jersey division of United Yacht Sales enjoy repeated success as the top performing team from 2011 - 2015.

TESTIMONIALS

Frank Wise is the consummate professional. Patient, kind, thoughtful and exceedingly knowledgeable which led way to the right contacts, the right surveyor and mechanics, and the right advice, guidance and hand holding - all with attention to detail and timeliness.

For us Frank was a God-send as we needed appropriate direction and guidance. For the buyer with more experience and knowledge - Frank is definitely the right guy because he knows yachts, the business, the right people, the ins and outs of yards and maintenance, and how to problem-solve, all with thoughtfulness and honesty.

We are accustomed to running businesses and hiring good people. Frank is the right investment.

Hi Frank, did i ever tell you that you were the only broker on the east coast that was willing to talk to me, when I told them that I was out of state every one found a way to blow me off, and I am crazy about my new old boat, working on it night and day, all light fun stuff, striping the teak, cleaning the bilge, God I love that boat!

Frank Wise was the broker who I dealt with on my latest purchase. Frank went out of his way to make the deal happen as I was 500 miles away, he arranged delivery, pre shipment prep, he even piloted the boat from the sellers dock to the marina where the boat was to be shipped. His description was right on, I would be happy to do business with Frank any time and would definitely recommend him to anyone in the market. Thanks again Frank!

I am writing to say thanks to Frank Wise. I recently completed the purchase of a boat being represented by United Yacht Sales and Frank was the broker. To say the least this was a difficult transaction with a very difficult seller. It took about 5 months to actually complete the deal. In that time Frank never lost patience, always represented the interest of the seller and was always upfront, honest and responsive to me. It would have been really easy to throw the towel in on this deal but he made it happen.

Frank has great connections in the industry as well. There was some work that needed to get done and he arranged it for me and it was done with great quality at a fair price. The icing on the cake was that Frank delivered my boat for me to Long Island in December, in what turned to be 6-8 foot seas. All in a 9 hour trip. Hands down one of the top business men I have dealt with in any industry.
