Brett Lyall

Brett recently joined the team at McMichael Yacht Brokers in our Newport Shipyard office. He currently resides in Charlestown, RI but grew up on the waters of western Long Island Sound. After 10 years of sailing in the junior program at Norwalk Yacht Club, Brett later returned to coach at Pequot and Noroton Yacht Club for an additional 6 years. He also regularly crewed on the J/109 STORM, which is how he came to know the McMichael organization.

While attending St. George’s School in Newport, RI, Brett was on their nationally ranked team, and sailed under some of the best coaches in the country. After relocating to California to attend the University of San Diego, he continued  coaching and racing at San Diego Yacht Club.

After 14 years in sunny California, pursuing a career in Environmental Engineering and later starting a company in the film industry, it was time for Brett to return to his East Coast roots and be closer to family. He looks forward to earning your trust as a broker and hopes to see you on the water!
