Rob Moore – Founding Partner & Yacht Broker

Robert Moore spent an idyllic youth bouncing around in club sailing programs along Western Long Island Sound. Rob’s first Newport to Bermuda Race was sailed in 1964, and he has sailed Newport to Bermuda and Marion to Bermuda races off and on up to the present. Rob skippered his first professional sailing charter in Long Island Sound in 1966.

From 1972 to 1977 Rob spent a second Idyllic youth skippering a 71 foot ketch in the charter trade, winters in the West Indies and summers in the Mediterranean. He accomplished 9 transatlantic voyages under sail in those five years.

Reality and a serious career began for Rob in 1978, with a wife, and a sales job with the Great Northern Paper Company. Along with these new responsibilities came an active career in club racing and the joys and tribulations of the Eastern Long Island Sound weekend circuits, various race weeks and many of the longer races. Rob built his first motorized skiff in his basement and resurrected a lovely schooner while putting in a great deal of volunteer work at Mystic Seaport during his first stint living in Noank, CT.

1983 brought Rob a new position as Director of International Sales for the Great Northern Nekoosa Corporation and a move to a house on Casco Bay, Maine. The 1927 gaff fore and aft schooner was traded for a lobster boat and, when not traveling internationally, early mornings found Rob at peace with the world hauling pots before going into the office. A considerable amount of time each summer was spent cruising ‘Down East”.

1990 brought an end to Great Northern Nekoosa, and Rob moved his family to New Canaan, CT. where he founded a consultancy business in the International Paper business, becoming presidents of Price & Pierce International, and then Impressions Paper. Rob took this opportunity to join the Western Long Island Sound fishing fraternity and kindled an appreciation for inshore fishing and the boats that serve these die hard anglers. Eventually Rob started taking people fishing professionally, the horizons expanded to the Tuna fishery, and wins in the 2010 and 2011 Nantucket Bluefin Tuna Tournaments.

Rob became a yacht broker in 2009 and has since, along with partners, Larry Rutter and John Longley, founded Rudders and Moorings Yacht Sales LLC.

Rob has a BS degree from Kenyon College. He served 9 years in the U.S. Coast Guard Reserve. Rob is a past Rear Commodore of the Cruising Club of America, where he was elected to membership in 1986. Rob currently resides in New Canaan, CT and Noank, CT, and is a current member of the Ram Island Yacht Club. He is a full time yacht broker active in the business along the Connecticut shore.
