Meet West Yachts’ Brokers

Russ & Leslie


Russ and his wife, Leslie, bought West Yachts in 2012 and have enjoyed working as a team to create the best, most rewarding buying and selling experience for each customer.

Russ Meixner

Power and Sail Experience

Over 60 years ago Russ discovered his love of boating when his Dad stepped away from the wheel of the family yacht, a 36′ Richardson, and let Russ take over.   He was hooked.  He has been boating ever since. He has owned and captained many boats including power boats and sailboats, Yachts and  race boats (Olympia to Roche Harbor in under 2 hours!!).  He has even captained an authentic dug-out canoe on the Amazon River!  When he got into selling Yachts he was surprised at how much he knew about boating and boats, attained from years of practical hands on experience.  He has extensive boating knowledge that he is ready to share with you.  Russ has combined his love of boating and his experience in selling into a dream job.  How many people can say that?
