• TOM TRAINOR

The Owner/Broker of Delta Yacht Sales is Tom Trainor. 

Having competed high school and college in Pittsburgh PA, it was time for Tom to head west. Upon arriving in Sacramento in the fall of 1976, getting involved in the boat business sounded interesting. Over the next 34 years, Tom devoted his time and effort to the marine industry in Northern California. Delta Yacht Sales was started in 2004 with two locations in the Northern California Delta. In starting Delta Yacht Sales, Tom wanted to combine his expertise with the experience of other qualified professionals in the marine industry to create something different.  Tom created a yacht brokerage that puts the customer first and strives to ensure complete satisfaction throughout the entire Listing and Sales process. In 2007, Delta Yacht Sales expanded to a third location in the Delta. Tom not only understands the needs of the sport yacht and yacht customer, he has the product knowledge to find the right yacht for each client.

Tom’s reputation for honesty, integrity, his complete familiarity with all aspects of the marine industry, and his attention to detail, allows his clients to enjoy a high comfort level as they purchase their next boat or market their current one. For 2010, Tom is the President of the California Yacht Brokers Association (CYBA).  Prior to Delta Yacht Sales, Tom held various sales and management positions at two boat dealerships in Northern California representing major manufacturers such as Sea Ray, Ferretti, Riva, Pershing, Boston Whaler, Four Winns, and many more.Tom is married to Debra, his wife of 29 years. When not working they enjoy golf, boating, and travel.
