A real deal is only as solid as the individuals creating the transaction. At the Boat Brokers, we believe a successful business environment must include a commitment to God-inspired values, honesty and integrity, responsibility, service and accountability. This is the only road to excellence.

Bill Upham
General Manager

I joined the Boat Broker Team in 2017, came from a background of Harley-Davidson dealerships, I was the GM at a dealership and joined the team at Boat Brokers to utilize my management skills and help with day to day business. I did bring my motorcycle with me to Lake Havasu and also my 1964 Impala. Perfect place to have fun with those and get out every chance I get. I enjoy working with the best team ever!


James Dean
Sales Manager
I’m James Dean, my legal name is James Dean Armstrong. I started in sales in 2001. My background was always construction until arriving in Lake Havasu. I’ve never sold like a typical salesman. Helping customers by listening to their needs is my #1 priority. Repeat and referral business is how I’ve been successful as a salesperson and in management. If I can help with your buying or selling needs please call me. It would be my pleasure.
Bill Draper
Operations Mgr / Sales
 I joined The Boat Brokers team in 1991 and it has been a great ride ever since. I worked in sales until 1997, then worked as General Manager until 2016 when I became Operations Manager. I also served for 28 years on the board of the Lake Havasu Marine Association. I have always loved getting up early in the morning to enjoy this business every day. I feel that my customers have become my friends. I love Classic Cars and drive a 1968 Chevy Pickup that was my dad’s. I was born and raised in Oregon and moved to Arizona in 1981. I got in the boat business in 1984 and have never looked back!
Sam Whaley
I’ve been boating all my life.  I bought my first boat from my dad when I was 13 and have been on the water ever since.  Raised two amazing children that are here in Havasu.  I have, in the past been a wild land firefighter, medic and even went to school for surgical technology and I keep coming back to the water.  I am passionate about art, fishing and all water sports.  I love my country, I love my city and I love Jesus.  Oh, and one more thing.  I love my job here at The Boat Brokers Inc.
Tyler Fleishman
He was born and raised right here in Lake Havasu City! He joined the team here at The Boat Brokers in January of 2016. He had no prior sales experience, but has always loved the water and boating. He is the father of 3 amazing kids. In his spare time he enjoys spending time with his family. He is also an avid competitive pool and poker player.
Morgan Braden

Born in Albuquerque NM, Morgan served in Emergency Medical Services (EMS) with the Bernalillo County Fire Department and Albuquerque Ambulance for 38 years as a first responder. Five years ago he retired and moved to Lake Havasu City where, in his spare time he flies, services and sells hot air balloons. He has loved boats and fishing all his life, which is why he chose selling boats and RV’s as a living.

Mike Flatter
 I’ve been in Lake Havasu City for 18 years. I love Arizona and I love the lake! Come see me for your Boat, RV or Classic Cars needs.
 I’m a former auto and RV technician. I became sales motivated and became an RV Sales Traveling Show Team. As that became too much traveling I decided to go to work for a highly recognized company closer to home where as I enjoy the water and the outdoors I sell the best of both my interests, boats and RV’s.
