Charlie (left) comes to us from East Grand Rapids, MI via stops in Holland, MI and Lake Geneva, WI. After a year at MSU, Charlie learned his passions were elsewhere and followed his heart to all things water related. After several years at Melges Performance Sailboats building boats, time on the water racing said boats, and building an amazing life with his true love, Julie, and their 2 sons, Charlie brought his positive attitude and love of helping others to the Van Dam family and their consortium of companies. As president of Boyne Boat Yard, Charlie and his crew have actively cultivated a following that is spreading the good word of Boyne Boat Yard and their services daily.

Most recently, Charlie has become a valuable part of the worldwide sales team at Van Dam Custom Boats and is passionate about sharing the details of the ‘one in the world’ journey our craftsmanship represents.

In his free time, Charlie still enjoys racing sailboats, loves to ski and spending as much time with his family as humanly possible.

Jeremy (right) hails from Indian River, Michigan though born in San Jose, California. He brings his expertise in the marine industry to Van Dam Custom Boats and is an integral part of our new Sales team while also heading up the company’s newest adventure…Boyne Yacht Sales. Jeremy graduated from Hope College with a degree in Psychology and enjoyed time on the ice as a member of their hockey team…also coaching for the school as part of his experience there. He and his wife and two daughters moved to northern Michigan from Holland to join the Van Dam family and became immediately engaged in the community here.

When asked what he likes about being a part of Van Dam, he says, “I love introducing people to our level of precision, craftsmanship and customization for the first time. We are the best kept secret in the boating world.”

In his free time Jeremy enjoys mountain biking, hockey, skiing and of course, boating. He also loves time with his girls hiking the many beautiful locations in our area.
