As a Washington native Jason has been boating his entire life. From cruising the San Juan’s as a child with his parents, to living aboard a 58′ Hatteras in Sausalito, CA after college, his love for the water and boats is truly his passion. Jason is an active member in both the Seattle Yacht Club and St Francis Yacht Club.
Jason moved to San Francisco after graduating from WSU and went to work in the Investment Real Estate business. After several successful years he decided to follow his passion, he traded in the suit and tie for some top-siders and became a yacht broker.
Going to work for the Ocean Alexander dealer in San Francisco he soon became their number one salesman, which led to a promotion to Regional Sales Manager in the San Francisco Bay office.
Jason and his wife moved back to Washington in 2012. He went to work for the Hampton dealer in Seattle quickly becoming one of their top producers. After three successful years Jason was asked to help form a new yacht dealer in Seattle. He spent one year helping build the company, but something was missing. His love for and experience with Ocean Alexander’s lead him to join Alexander Marine in 2015.

“ADD YOUR REVIEW
We appreciated the help that Jason gave us when we purchased our yacht. He was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. He spent many hours with us looking at and sea trialing many different yachts. He wanted us to have the perfect yacht that would fit out lifestyle, as well as our budget.
We finally made the decision to purchase a Hampton 558 and we love it! It was the right decision for us and we have Jason to thank for that. He even took us out after we purchased it to teach us how to dock it.
In the future we will definitely go back to Jason for any of our yachting needs”
“We recently worked with Alexander Marine with the sale of our old yacht, along with the purchase of a new yacht. Specifically, Jason Smith was the broker to facilitate both transactions. From the first phone call on a Sunday, to the final closing, he was professional, courteous and knowledgeable. I've even referred friends to Jason as they search for new boats. When I look to upgrade in a few years, I will (undoubtedly) work with Jason again. Even after the sale/purchase, Jason continued to keep contact with us to ensure everything went smoothly. Jason walks the walk as he's an avid boater himself. If you're looking for a reliable, honest and fair broker, he's your guy!”VIEW ON YELP
“I have been doing business with Alexander Marine for several years. We have purchases two yachts through them, and have used their maintenance and parts departments as well. They are the best for customer service, attentiveness and professionalism. Jason Smith was our broker on our last two yacht transactions. He is the ultimate professional. Most yacht brokers are mostly interested in selling you and "closing the deal". Jason is more interested in finding out what we, as clients, are looking for, and then working with us to find the right boat. He takes the time to get familiar with the boat, the seller's motivations, etc., before he recommends it. He was always looking for ways to get the best deal for us. If you are looking to buy or sell a boat or yacht on the West Coast, or really anywhere, I could not recommend Jason Smith at Alexander Marine higher.”VIEW ON YELP
