LEADERSHIP TEAM
Jeff Husby

Jeff Husby

Owner, GM

Jeff Husby has helped shape a viable water sports community in Central Florida since first launching his career in 1993 at Southeast Correct Craft. As its star salesman, he was totally immersed in the water sports culture.

In 2008, Jeff took a leap of faith to start Regal & Nautique of Orlando with partners Marc Hooker and Bob Secrist. Under his capable leadership, RNO has emerged as a world class organization, earning impressive accolades.

Most recently, RNO was named the #2 ranked dealer in North America in the Boating Industry Top 100. It consistently wins top global brand recognition for sales and service, coupled with a 2x designation as the nation’s #1 Best in Class Service Department named by Boating Industry magazine. In 2019, RNO won Dealership of the Year by the Water Sports Industry Association. For three consecutive years, it has been counted among the Top 10 Great Dealerships to Work for in North America by the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas. RNO is distinguished as the only dealership in Florida to earn the National Marine Manufacturers of America CSI Award in both sales and service for Regal and Nautique.

Jeff was also feted as a finalist in the Boating Industry BOLD MOVES roster which spotlights top marine industry leaders making a significant impact. He was also named among Orlando’s “Top Tier Professionals” in Orlando STYLE Magazine.

And while some might drop anchor to bask in the wave of success, Jeff doesn’t rest at idle. He’s cruising forward in major expansion mode including the construction of a state-of-the-art Nautique showroom in downtown Orlando, while also serving as president of the local marine trade association and juggling duties as President/ CEO for WaterSports Central, a six-location dealership group in Georgia and South Carolina.

When he’s not on the job, you might find him cruising the local waterways with his significant other, traveling for fun, hanging out and having fun with his son who’s attending the University of Alabama, or chilling with Safiro, his American standard poodle who is hands-down everybody’s favorite at the dealership.
