Father and son team up at Fraser Yachts

Having left the Palm Beach offices of Camper and Nicholson International where he was a broker since 1995 broken only by a short spell when he left to join the Luxury Yacht Group, Jim Wallace has joined the expanding brokerage yacht team within Fraser Yachts and taken his son Jamie with him. Both father and son will work out of the Fort Lauderdale office.

Wallace senior spent his childhood club racing in various small motor and sailboats and thus began his love affair with the sea. He started yacht brokering in 1980 with McMichael in Annapolis; initially this was for sales of sailing boats in the 10 to 20 metre size range, however, the bulk of business then and now is in motor yachts.

Wallace junior, born in Annapolis, MD, has lived in the Palm Beach area for the past 13 years. He has enjoyed sailing extensively in the British Virgin Islands, Belize and in the Bahamas. Upon graduation, from Eckerd College in 2007 he started work on his MBA but decided to put that on hold and went to work with his father as a junior broker.
