Born in the New Smyrna Beach area, John Lloyd always had a passion for the water and began his career as a deckhand on local head boats and charter boats at the early age of 10 operating out of Ponce Inlet, FL. After obtaining his 100 Ton USCG Captain’s license in 1982, John operated many of the same boats he worked on as a kid eventually finding his way into the private sportfishing world in the mid 1980’s. Tournaments and seasonal fisheries provided opportunities to travel extensively throughout the Bahamas, Caribbean, Mexico and the U.S. East Coast.
In 1992 John settled down in New Smyrna Beach buying his own boat, a custom built 46’ “BC” Custom Carolina sport fish and successfully operating a charter business there for 16 years. Throughout a career that now spans almost 35 years, John has had an affection for custom sportfishing boats, having owned one but also operating some of the finest custom boats ever built such as Whiticar, Spencer, Jim Smith and Merritt. There is no substitute for experience, John’s experience extends beyond just sportfishing and into Trawlers, Cruisers, Motor Yachts and outboard powered vessels. Put that experience to work for you!
