Bio - BRIAN KELL
Brian was raised by the waters and on the beaches of Victoria, BC. Having satisfied an academic with an arts degree at the University of Victoria and a law degree at the University of British Columbia, his compass directed him to a lifestyle industry, to enter the business of yachts.
In the mid 1980s, Brian joined Roger Glassford as a partner in Grand Yachts Inc.- a solid and productive relationship that flourishes to this day. Brian went on to form the BC Yacht Brokers Association, drafting the constitution, code of ethics and initial standard form agreements. This association continues to flourish, and has served as a model for other jurisdictions interested in higher degrees of professionalism. Brian sold his first Fleming in Spain. Owned by a British gentleman, listed for sale in California, located in Porta Banus, sold to businessman from Denver. Since those sea trials in the Mediterranean, Brian has cruised Flemings in BC waters, including the Central Coast, and most recently, with Tony Fleming aboard "Venture" in Prince William Sound, Alaska.
Brian is the owner of Grand Yachts Inc., and is proud of the reputation that his company has established with yachtsmen even beyond the Western Canadian market. At the very heart of Brian's joy in the yacht business, are the amazing people he has come to know, all living the best moments of their lives and so many whom have become life-long clients and friends. Brian lives in Kitsilano with his lovely wife Beverly, and enjoys a wide variety of interest, including extended cruising aboard "Bridges".
