Robert Stotler was born in Miami where he began boating with his family from Biscayne Bay to the Florida Keys at an early age. From his early teen years he lived in Fort Lauderdale at the end of the New River and started in the boat business renting Jet Skis and small boats on Fort Lauderdale beach. From there, his passion for boating and the vast networks he began to build, lead him off to Europe, the Atlantic seaboard, Bahamas, Caribbean, and the Great Lakes as a deckhand, first officer, and captain of both private and charter yachts. A two year position as VP of Cigarette Racing in Miami provided the launch pad for a brokerage career in 2000.
With decades of relationship building and a history of vast experience in overseeing countless refit projects, Robert is familiar with all phases of construction, maintenance, and operations – including logistics, provisioning and crew management. Stotler Yachts became the natural extension of all of his experience, networking with global partners and yachting passions. This has led him to next phase of joining a powerhouse brokerage firm, Worth Avenue Yachts.
