Dennis Riehl, one of three principals of Crow’s Nest Yachts’ Newport Beach, Calif., office, announced the addition of Capt. Jim Birschbach, Paul D. Enghauser and Rick Weisenberger to the brokerage’s sales group.
Birschbach brings many years of navigation experience as a captain but also years of sales experience. He is well-prepared to advise his clients in selecting the right vessel for their needs, and in many cases has firsthand knowledge of the vessels’ performance. “With my experience navigating the many oceans of the world, I am truly a trusted confidant to my clients when it comes to their objectives in their next vessel. Many of my clients are move-up buyers, with some searching for that ‘dream’ yacht that allows them to travel far and wide.”
Enghauser brings more than 11 years of experience as a broker, with skills in new yacht construction in addition to brokerage marketing. His list of new yacht construction includes models ranging from 42 feet to 100 feet, while his brokerage experience covers all aspects of the yachting world. “I like to work with and assist my clients in finding just the right yacht for them — also ensuring that I am always available for assistance no matter what the issue may be. Since I too am a boater, I have a personal interest in my clients’ needs and wishes, and can relate to what they are seeking.”
Rick Weisenberger has enjoyed a career in yachting for more than 40 years, working in yacht commissioning, marine hardware, and new yacht sales and brokerage, both power and sail. He has been a licensed yacht broker in California since 1985 and Florida since 1996. Weisenberger has enjoyed worldwide travel in pursuit of his clients’ dreams and has sold an impressive list of vessels from superyachts to runabouts in Europe as well as on every coast in America. Weisenberger says his formula for success is simple: “Work hard, be genuine and always put your client’s interests first. Everything else will take care of itself.”
“All three men bring tons of experience to our team, yet each is totally different from the other, with unique and valued skills. The welcome additions of Capt. Jim Birschbach, Paul Enghauser and Rick Weisenberger will ensure the continued success and growth of our firm,” Riehl said.
