Meet The Team - Karl Nelson - President 

Karl Nelson - President & Owner, Sunset Yacht Sales LLC

Originally from Minnesota, the land of 10,000 lakes, Karl's love of boating began in childhood. When his career in environmental sales skyrocketed, he relocated to Tennessee and enjoyed boat life in the south for many years.

Karl and his wife moved to Gig Harbor in 2016 following their son, who was stationed at JBLM. In search of moorage, Karl met Kathy Long, the previous owner of Sunset Yachts. It didn't take long for Kathy to talk Karl into joining the team and, shortly afterwards, into buying the brokerage so she could retire.

Karl is passionate about cultivating lifelong relationships with his clients and especially about connecting you with the boat of your dreams!
