Born in Lagrangeville, NY, Olan Scheff started his life as Part Owner and Trainer of Ashbourne Thoroughbred Race Horse Training Center. While he continued three decades of training of over 500+ horses, he began as a professional rider and assistant to top world Trainers. As a full-time Trainer, he was involved in the purchase and sales for many prominent clients. His dedication and hard work put him at a top level of racing at Saratoga, Belmont, Aqueduct and Gulfstream Park. On his off time from a demanding job he would head to his boat every chance possible to find the peace and beauty of being on the water.
As a young man his other interests were speed boats, rebuilding engines on muscle cars and motorcycles. He first began fishing on his Grandfathers 55’ Matthews from Old Saybrook, CT where they fished the Canyons out of Snug Harbor, RI for tuna, bluefish and stripers. The love for boating went to the forefront and he became an avid boater owning several boats in his life, enjoying the Hudson, Lake George, Long Island Sound, and the Stuart area.
Around 2003, he took a break from his demanding racing career for a job more on the water and decided to stay in Florida. His first job was working for one of the Largest Dealers, successfully selling over 45 boats his first year. He took every opportunity by invitation to tour and experience training in Regal, Fountain, Venture, Ocean, Wellcraft and Hydra sports. He also has certifications from Mercury and Evinrude. Once licensed, he worked at a local yacht brokerage and quickly listed over 33% of the company’s total dollar amount in inventory.
As a Full-time Yacht Broker let Olan’s experience, attention to detail and professionalism satisfy both buyers and sellers. He is always there to answer any questions and walk you through the process to make your purchase or sale a smooth and easy transaction.
