    Hailing from Radnor, PA a suburb of Philadelphia, Peter spent the summer months of his youth growing up on the Jersey shore of Ocean City. His move to Fort. Lauderdale, FL at the age of 10 solidified his passion for the sea and all the facets of life and adventure that the ocean offers.   A USCG certified OUPV Captain, Peter’s Scandinavian bloodline from Finland explains his love of the Ocean.  His days on the water include fishing the Atlantic Ocean from South Florida around to the Gulf of Mexico, West End to the Abacos and the ICW, and Key West to Annapolis.   Now Peter is excited to be Captaining the new Wilmington St. Barts Yachts location:   “I enjoy the relationship building aspect of getting to know my clients. As a yacht broker, taking the time to learn what each individual needs and wants for their journeys on the water is important to me. I like to consider myself a hardworking, respectful and honest people person who is good at my chose profession. I have had the pleasure of selling concepts and ideas as well as varied tangible objects and enjoy the sales process very much.”   Previous careers include management success in the surf industry with retail clothing and sporting equipment, ownership of a European Contemporary Furniture and Design business, franchise development for an international print and marketing publication, and most recently being the Commodore of Business Development for a tenured and successful boatyard and marina.   Family, fishing, fine food, Formula One racing, surfing, and traveling complete all the interests that occupy Peter’s downtime. His “first child” a 1994 2320 Robalo, and a vintage 1969 13’ Super Sport Boston Whaler keep him busy and on the water. Peter’s wife Mary, daughter Morgan and son Jensen round out the Kurki family.   Peter’s current favorite Beneteau currently is the Gran Turismo 50. The GT50 offers all the layout, performance and design needed to have an optimal time with friends on the water.   “I look forward to meeting you and talking about your next vessel.”
