He graduated from Dalhousie University with a Bachelor of Commerce Co-op degree in 2013 and has been brokering boats since 2014. He has helped dozens of clients buy, sell and upgrade their boats since then. Chris believes in giving back to the boating community. He currently serves on the Halifax International Boat Show board, a Director of Boating Atlantic and a Director of Sail Nova Scotia. He is also involved on committees at the club level.

About Scott Carroll

Scott’s passion for boating started at a very young age growing up on the water in Chester, Nova Scotia. Over the years, Scott has been involved in many aspects of boating, including working at a boatyard as a teenager, family cruising, sport fishing, competitive inshore and offshore sailing, delivering yachts up and down the east coast from Newfoundland to Florida, and managing the build of his own 46’ Downeast sport fishing boat. After a successful 29 years in the Auto business, Scott sold his group of dealerships and turned his boating experience and passion into a career. “It’s a natural transition for me to be involved in the sales and brokerage side of the business. I am timely with both my communication and customer follow up. Based on my sales experience, I know what is needed to structure a deal and see it through to the end.” Scott understands the importance of long-lasting relationships with his customers and is driven to provide the best customer service when looking to sell or purchase your next boat.

Neptunus 650F Review

Neptunus 650F 400

By Andy Adams

Over the years Canadian Yachting has had the pleasure of doing several boat review articles on new Neptunus models and we are familiar with the qualities that Neptunus is famous for. They have all been exceptional yachts, but this is the one I would most want to own myself. It’s a personal choice and a matter of taste as to whether you would prefer to have a sedan express model or a flybridge but in my opinion, the flybridge layout offers some wonderful attributes.

We met with Neptunus Managing Director Jan Willem De Jong this past fall to take the new Neptunus 650F out in Lake Ontario.

Clearing Pillsbury Sound, surrounded by voluptuous emerald mountains as the ferry sliced through royal blue waters, I was struck by the unspoiled ambiance of St. John, the island gliding past our starboard beam and the irresistible charm of a village called Cruz Bay visible from our quarter stern.
