Meet Capt. Tim Kleihege
"The Boat Brokerage Guy"

Tim Kleihege
A Journey from Stock Broker to Boat Broker, from Lake Michigan to Lake Erie...

After numerous years on The Midwest and Chicago Stock Exchanges, Tim Kleihege founded "The Mariner Network Yacht Sales" in 2001. The Mariner Network quickly became a recognized entity in Lake Michigan's boat brokerage community. Why? It was pretty simple. From day one every boat listing focused on ample detail, plenty of pictures and ample customer communication. 

After nearly 20 years of yacht sales in New Buffalo, Michigan, it was time for a change. Tim contacted former Hillsdale College classmate, Tom Mack at South Shore Marine in Huron, Ohio. Tom hired Tim as the Listings Manager and Tim spent a terrific year at South Shore Marine in 2023. Now, Tim is proudly anchored with Bay Marine as their Sales Manager in the Catawba Island region.

Tim's past also includes a USCG Captains license, a graduate from the Chapman School of Seamanship, Owner of Great Lakes Marine Surveying, the American Boat & Yacht Council and a Charter Captain on Lake Michigan.

Today, Tim and Katie Kleihege reside in Avon, Ohio. They have three grown children, one son-in-law and spend their free time in the UP of Michigan and on Lake Winnebago in Wisconsin.
