Teri Rutter

Yacht Consultant


Teri, a Navy Veteran and avid outdoorswoman, combines her love for the sea with her expertise in yacht sales. With a background in boat handling since childhood and experience as a Surface Warfare Officer, she brings drive and commitment to helping clients find their dream yachts.

Growing up in Washington State, she has fond memories of crabbing, fishing, and swimming in the chilly waters of the Puget Sound. Her love for boat handling started when she learned how to drive the family boat at 6 years old and persists until now.

To continue her appreciation of the sea, Teri attended the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland where she learned to sail for the first time on the Severn River. After graduating, she was commissioned as a Surface Warfare Officer where she deployed several times. She served in the Engineering Department and concurrently drove the ship.  

Once her time in the Navy was complete, Teri enrolled and graduated from Pepperdine University with her MBA to grow her business acumen. Her love for learning motivates her as she spends time understanding her client’s needs to find them the right yacht.

Teri’s goal for her clients is to serve them with the same drive and commitment she has for her country.
