Dirk Boehmer ’94

Already a Coast Guard veteran when he enrolled at IUP, Dirk Boehmer ’94 has put to good use a double major in Marketing and German for International Trade. As director of international sales for Bertram Yacht in Miami, he sells yachts all over the world—to company CEOs, Formula One race car drivers, heads of state, and others who can afford them. While he learned the basics of sailing at IUP’s Yellow Creek sailing base, he has since acquired a fifty-ton master captain’s license (as well as an M.B.A. from the University of Tennessee) and occasionally captains charter sailboats for fun. He lives with his wife and toddler daughter in Port Charlotte, Fla.
