John McBride’s first job, at age 14, was helping a yacht broker keeps his customers happy. Since then John has been an entrepreneur, business owner, lobbyist, marketing executive and has worn many other hats. Married with two kids, John is a licensed captain, serves on the board of his yacht club and enjoys sharing his passion for the water with the Boy Scouts, Sea Scouts and the local youth sailing program. Mr. McBride owned the yacht brokerage firm Forgotten Coast Yachts until deciding he can be more effective working with the trusted professional staff at Great Southern Yachts. John is ready to assist folks with buying and selling in the northern gulf from St. Marks to Apalachicola, what the locals call “Florida’s Forgotten Coast.” John owns way too many boats both power and sail; most weekends he can be found near salt water assisting other boaters or taking the family out to enjoy the water.
