Founder of Grand Yachts Inc.
1943 - 2019
From the early days in False Creek and founding Grand Yachts, to leaving the Creek to make way for Expo ’86 and moving into the original Coal Harbour Marina, to partnering with Brian Kell to develop the potential of Grand Yachts, to being involved in the development of the BC Yacht Brokers Association, to seizing the opportunity to participate in the development of the new Coal Harbour Marina and building offices there, to expanding our dealership to include the legendary Fleming Yachts, to building rewarding relationships with clients that have become lifelong friends, to building a team of like-minded people to grow the company, and at the end of the day to putting positive excitement and fun into the process of buying and selling yachts. This is Roger's legacy.
Roger Glassford brought integrity to the yacht brokerage industry. This is what we at Grand Yachts continue to strive for every day.
Roger, a man for all seasons, may he rest in peace.
