Shortly after World War II Jim Northrop and George Johnson formed a partnership to provide a quality yacht brokerage service to their close circle of yachting companions on Long Island Sound. The first office opened in 1949 at 366 Madison Avenue in lower Manhattan and served as the foundation for the fledging brokerage that was soon to expand into one of the largest and most respected yacht brokerages in the world. Northrop & Johnson's Yankee heritage was reflected in the company's reputation for honesty, integrity, and fair play.
The reputation as the "Gentlemen Brokers" spread quickly in the tightly knit New York yachting community and by the early 1960's the company expanded with branch offices in Stamford, CT, Miami, FL, and Marblehead, MA. In 1971 Kees Van Vliet opened the first US Yacht Brokerage office in Europe in Cannes, France
