Kardinal was founded in 2008 by John Jacobi and Chris Collins, two experienced yacht brokers.
Chris Collins brings over a decade of yachting experience to Kardinal Marine as a licensed yacht Captain and yacht refit project manager, as well as considerable practical expertise in maritime law and finance. Prior to co-founding Kardinal, Chris served as Director of Operations for a brokerage and management firm in Ft. Lauderdale. Most of Chris' marine career has been spent in the Mediterranean, Caribbean and both coasts of the United States, making his understanding of international maritime and local business rules and regulations a valuable asset to Kardinal Marine's clientele.
John first combined his experience with international business and the luxury market in the aviation industry. After successfully creating an aviation brokerage and management firm, a few of John's clients turned his attention to another life long passion: yachting.
After managing the world's largest Chris Craft dealership outside of Atlanta, John ventured to Fort Lauderdale to take over as Director of Sales for a well-established yacht brokerage firm on 17th Street. In 2008, together with Chris Collins, John started Kardinal. Together, they are building a firm on the cornerstones of honesty, integrity, professionalism, and hard work.
