Chris Ruggieri

Chris Ruggieri – Owner & Yacht Sales
410.263.9288 x 101 | chris@intrinsicyacht.com

Chris was born and raised around the Chesapeake, spending extended periods of time boating with his family – on sail boats with his parents and on power boats with his grandfather. After graduating from college, Chris began what was supposed to be just a summer job selling boats, but what was intended to be a fun summer job turned into much more. He threw himself into the industry learning everything he could about every type of boat.

In 2001, Chris opened Intrinsic Yacht & Ship. He began working with a select group of clients, helping them buy and sell their boats many times over. He eventually expanded his office and sales staff and began offering brokerage on a larger scale.

Since that time, Intrinsic Yacht & Ship has become the exclusive local dealer of such fine boat lines as Ocean Yacht, Albemarle Boats, Jupiter Marine and Bonadeo Boatworks. By combining the quality and appeal of these new boat lines with a continued emphasis on marketing quality pre-owned yachts and developing personal relationships with our buyers and sellers, Intrinsic has flourished in a difficult market and continued to exceed previous years’ sales records.

Today boating remains Chris’s favorite pastime, and sportfishing has become his passion. He has participated in countless fishing tournaments around the mid-Atlantic region with tremendous results. With extensive knowledge and experience in and around boats dating back to his child hood, building highly customized company demo boats and countless hours spent on and around boats, Chris is an excellent choice when it comes to finding the right boat for his buyers. He also excels at helping his sellers effectively market and sell their boats.

Jackie Wooster

Jackie Wooster – Business Manager
410.263.9288 x 102 | jackie@intrinsicyacht.com

After spending many years running her family’s successful business based in Annapolis, Jackie joined Intrinsic Yacht & Ship in April 2008. Her years of experience dealing with the public and handling all aspects associated with running a business made her an ideal candidate for the position of business manager. Her years spent on power and sail boats while she was growing up gave her the passion for using her experience in the marine industry.

Jackie’s favorite part of her job is the relationships she has made with our clients, most notably while assisting buyers and sellers through the settlement process. Her favorite days are when she sees the excitement of our buyers taking delivery of their new boats, as well as helping our sellers by ensuring that the transfer of ownership goes smoothly. Her focus is always on the satisfaction of our customers, whether it be with our service department taking care of every detail of servicing or maintaining their boats or through the sales process. Jackie is also responsible for all marketing and accounting for the company.
