Swiftsure Yachts is proud to announce the newest member of its brokerage team, Ken Monaghan.
Monaghan, a yacht dealer and broker since 2015, is well known throughout the Pacific Northwest as both a broker and sailor. He has been a regular crew on some of the most successful race boats in the area, including Glory, Sachem, Jedi, Banshee, Terremoto and the J/24 Baba Louie, among many others. As a broker, he’s handled several new boat lines and brokerage yachts.
What sets Monaghan apart is his range of experience and knowledge. He worked on commercial fishing boats as a mate while putting himself through college, in the process recording five Inside Passage transits and gaining important ship’s operational knowledge. His small boat experience comes from years sailing International 14s at the national and world championship levels. As a racing and delivery crew Monaghan has sailed many thousands of ocean miles.
Prior to yacht sales Monaghan worked as an engineer with Boeing and later in technology sales.
“Ken’s a natural fit for Swiftsure,” Ryan Helling of Swiftsure Yachts says. “He brings a wealth of experience and energy to our team.”
