LAURA PETERSON – CONSULTING/RETIRED
Laura has been with East Coast Yacht Sales from day one, working as Jon’s assistant for 35+ years. In June of 1981 Laura answered an ad for a “yacht broker’s secretary” and the rest as we say is history.
As a young girl Laura spent summers between Cape Cod and Cross Lake, Maine with family. Her boating experience growing up was on lakes on small powerboats. She never set foot on a sailboat until she was 16 years old. That summer she cruised from Camden with a group of teenagers aboard The Adventure captained by Jim Sharp. As a result of that experience she realized her love and respect for the ocean. Laura lives in Brunswick, Maine with her dog, Luna (who is the official ECYS office dog), and cat, Tallulah.
