This is Fraser’s second attempt at retiring, but this time it may be for keeps!
Fraser began his second career as a yacht broker in partnership with his wife Annie.
They had been the type of boaters who were simply born to cruise. At one point, they made the Ottawa River their home and came to know the Rideau boating basin like pros.
Before Annie passed away in 2019, she and Fraser cruised the waters from Sorel, P.Q. down through the St. Lawrence locks to the Ottawa River and made several complete passages through the Rideau Canal to Lake Ontario. They also traversed the Trent-Severn Waterway to Georgian Bay several times and chartered in the BVIs.
Fraser had earned his accreditation as a Certified Professional Yacht Broker, and is one of a select few in Canada.
“I was very fortunate to meet Fraser and Annie when they were looking for a ‘retirement’ project. “ stated Mike Burns, President of North South Nautical Group. “Their marketing talents combined with their love of boating made them the ideal yacht broker team.”
Fraser is adamant that this is probably the last time he retires.
“Fraser is going to be missed by the NSYS team. He is a great salesperson, very professional, and a true gentleman. “ continued Burns.
