Willem Van Rooyen

Yacht Broker

Willem Van Rooyen



Hailing from South Africa, Willem Van Rooyen developed a love for the water at a very young age. Growing up on the beach he spent a lot of his time boating, fishing, and diving. After immigrating to Nashville TN in 1998 he enjoyed countless hours exploring and fishing many of the lakes and rivers systems throughout the South. When relocating to South Florida with his wife in 2014, it was a natural decision for him to transition from a decade long career in finance to the yacht and boat brokering world. Combining his passion with his attention to the detail and numbers, today Willem enjoys helping his buyers and sellers find and navigate the right deals. He takes care of his clients before, during, and after the sale, which he feels is key to doing good business while building long-term relationships.

Willem's goals are simple; share his passion and knowledge for the water, provide top-notch service, always work in his clients’ best interest, and do so with honesty and integrity.

Willem and his wife Bonnie live in Deerfield Beach with their son Jace and daughter Isla; they enjoy spending time out on the water or at the beach.
