Originally from a northern Chicago suburb Jarrett moved to Door County, Wi at the age of 8. Growing up in the small resort town of Fish Creek he enjoyed days on the bay of Green Bay as well as competitively sailing with the local yacht club.
His love of the water brought him to South Florida after college where he started his own yacht detailing business. He then moved into yacht brokerage sales and eventually found his niche in small yacht tender sales. Branching off from brokerage he formed the International Yacht Network Group in late 2006 as a parent company. Since then International Yacht Network has worked in the design and sale of tenders from Nautica International, Novurania, Zodiac, Williams Jet tenders as well as holding past ownership stakes in Evolution Tenders and the purchase of the assets of Nautica International from bankruptcy.
More recently Jarrett and his wife Katie made the move back to the Midwest and have started Ribjet U.S.A. Now a subsidiary of International Yacht Network, Jarrett takes a hands on sales approach and works directly with clients to build tenders based upon their exact needs from the Ribjet factory in Green Bay, Wi.
In addition to being the only jet propulsion specific yacht tender manufacturer in the U.S. each of our jet yacht tenders are built one at a time. Utilizing an easy to service Rotax gas or Italian built diesel engine as well as extremely limiting the number of vessels produced each year, we ensure every tender that exits our factory is thoroughly checked, tested, tuned and ready to hit the water as soon as her new owners take delivery. At this time Ribjet U.S.A only sells and ships direct from our factory in Wisconsin or through our carefully selected network of certified product representatives and yacht manufacturers. We have found that factory direct sales help to eliminate some of the shortcomings of factory and dealer relationships. This concept also gives us direct contact with our customers all while cutting overhead that in turn we can reflect in our retail pricing and present the best value jet yacht tender on the market.

We provide concise answers to your questions direct from the source.
