Chris Ruggieri

Owner & Yacht Sales


Chris was born and raised around the Chesapeake, spending extended periods of time boating with his family – on sailboats with his parents and on powerboats 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 to begin offering brokerage sales and service work to his clients. 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 childhood, 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.

In the early 90’s he fell in love with offshore fishing and started mating on a 38 foot sport fishing boat. He spent the spring and fall on the Chesapeake Bay and the summers in Ocean City, Maryland. From 1992 until 1995, he freelanced on several different private and charter boats in Ocean City. Scott also worked in the custom home building field during this time. In 1997 he became a full time captain on a 53 foot private fishing boat that traveled up and down the East Coast and the Caribbean. He took a job in 2001 on a 140 motor yacht that divided it’s time between the East Coast, the Caribbean and the Mediterranean. At that time, he obtained his STCW-95 certification, as well as SCUBA certification.
