David Pringle - Product Manager


I was born outside of Boston in 1961.


  • In 1971 my family moved to Worthington, Ohio where my love for boats and boating was ignited sailing on a 33' sailboat named "MAGIC DRAGON" on Lake Erie out of Sandusky.

  • In 1976 we then moved to northern Virginia and I started boating on the Chesapeake Bay on a 40 Post and then a 44 Carver. 

  • In 1979 I moved to Florida and discovered salt water sport fishing and knew that I would someday pursue a career in the marine industry.


I now have about 42 years of boating experience and thousands of hours at the helm cruising and fishing on my own boats.


For the last twenty years I’ve been a professional yacht salesman. I fished with the Florida Sportsman magazine on television and I’ve been on the cover of Motor Boating magazine. I’ve been a factory test captain with Edgewater Power boats and run boats for catalog photo shoots for them and other high end boat manufacturers.


I am very excited to be a member of the Universal Yacht Sales team. I’m the brand manager for the "Marlow Mainship" line of cruising trawlers.


Whether you are looking to purchase or sell a new or pre-owned vessel use my extensive knowledge and experience in the marine industry to assist you now or in the future. You can rest assured that a hassle free and enjoyable transaction will be achieved!


From survey to sea trial to closing I am waiting anxiously to assist you.


Thank you!
