Jane Burnett is located on the west coast of Florida and has lived in the area since 1971 owning several sail and power boats. An avid sailor and racer, Jane participated in the Windjammer Race Series, Kalua Cup and Bikini Cup Series for women winning many awards. During her 12 years in the yacht charter industry, Jane was fortunate enough to sail in the BVI, St. Martin, St. Barts, St. Lucia to Grenada, Australia and Florida on monohulls and catamarans. At the turn of the century, Jane and her husband bought a Beneteau sailboat and cruised around the Caribbean and back to Florida.
Upon graduation from Mercer University with a degree in Psychology, she realized that her chosen career path was not going to allow her to pursue her dreams. When Jane was offered a position with the world’s largest yacht charter company, she quickly accepted and began a successful career in yacht sales selling new yachts into the Caribbean. After cruising in the Caribbean, Jane assisted her husband with the successful startup of a Land Surveying firm providing professional services within the state of Florida. Anxious to return to yacht sales, Jane assisted with the marketing and sale of the firm. Prior to joining Curtis Stokes and Associates, Jane spent 7 years selling brokerage yachts with a large Florida based yacht brokerage firm.
Jane approaches yacht sales from a woman’s perspective. She believes that oftentimes women feel left out of yacht ownership decisions. By engaging both husband and wife in the process the outcome is more likely to be positive. During her career in yacht sales, Jane has assisted many couples to successfully buy and sell their yachts. As the adage states, “The happiest day in a boat owner’s life is the day he buys and sells his yacht!”. Jane believes she is in the “happiness business” and works diligently with her clients to insure every sale results in a happy experience for all involved.
When Jane is not selling yachts, she enjoys spending time with her family, boating, diving/snorkeling, riding motorcycles and hot rods!
