In 2010 he joined Seacoast Yachts as one of the three in-house yacht brokers and in 2016 Millard left Seacoast starting his own independent yacht brokerage and yacht management company, “805 Yachts”.  805 Yachts is now servicing a variety of clients with buying and selling of vessels, Santa Barbara slip transfers, and yacht management services to ensure that their boats remain ship shape.

Over the years from his family’s compound in the historic Easton shore mariners’ town of Saint Michaels, Maryland, Stephen owned and operated numerous boats from classic wooden runabouts to large sailing yachts. As an experienced professional skipper he has cruised and delivered yachts along the northeastern seaboard to the gulf coast of Florida as well as up and down the California coast to southern Mexico. Millard keeps his restored classic Liberty 49 (hull #4) cutter rig sloop in the Santa Barbara Harbor and is an active cruiser with the Santa Barbara Yacht Club.

For the benefit of his clients Stephen Millard brings over 40 years of hands-on management, marketing, and customer service experience to the brokerage having successfully founded and managed an internationally recognized marketing and special events company based in Dallas, Texas which he still owns and consults with.
