Greg Reidinger has been boating since he was a young boy on the Great Lakes where he was raised. After his military service in the Air Force he knew his calling was to move to the South. Now, having been in the South most of his adult life, he has taken advantage of this blessing by living in some of the South’s most beautiful places such as Wilmington, NC, Charleston, SC and now Destin, FL. He loves to pass on his passion for these places through yachting and fishing. When given the chance Greg also loves to sail. In fact he recently spent part of early spring 2011 sailing the Windward islands while living onboard a 50 ft sailing yacht. His travels took him to St. Lucia, Dominica, Guadeloupe, Les Saintes, Martinique and Antigua where he spent his time diving, sailing, fishing, and enjoying the lifestyle that he now tries to share with his clients. Over his career he has had extensive factory training from many manufacturers including Sea Ray, Cabo, Hatteras, Bertram, Crownline, Grady White, and Meridian, to name a few. Greg holds his Captain’s license and is Co-owner of Great Southern Yacht Company where he works hard towards making sure his friends and clients know what it means to Live the Dream.

Lauderdale all the way to Minneapolis, Minnesota and back through the Great Lakes and the Erie Canal returning to Ft. Lauderdale. He grew up on the Gulf Coast and fished the tournament circuit in Texas on his 46 Bertram, “Grand Slam”. Jim now lives in Ft.
