Luke grew up in a military family and lived all over the U.S. and Panama. His father retired to Annapolis where Luke attended Junior & Senior High School.
Luke has a diverse employment background that trained him well for managing the service needs of our customers. His first job was in purchasing for Anne Arundel County, and in 1978, he came to Hartge’s to work with Nick Schlegel’s travel lift crew. After a few years in the yard, he became a yacht broker selling new and used boats for Hartge Yacht Sales. When the luxury tax ruined most boat manufacturing and sales were dismal, Luke moved into commercial construction for a few years. He then returned to the marine industry and became our Service Manager.
Luke has a working knowledge in most every aspect of boats and boatyards. He has good rapport with employees and customers. He always sees the big picture with attention to detail.
In Luke’s free time, he enjoys running, working with horses, and spending time of the bay aboard his Center-Console.
Exceptional Yacht yard!
The staff at HYY are true artisans and artists. Many have been with the management of decades. I have used a number of mid-Chesapeake yards since the 1980s, and after painful trial and error, HHY gained my gratitude and loyalty.

Expertise and excellent customer service.
I've know these guys for over a decade. I've referred several customers to them and selected them to refit my 1969 Hinckley Competition 41.

Can't say enough good things about Hartge's. Their yard workers were diligent in making sure everything was done just right. Attention to detail and willingness to explain each step along the way. Extremely professional, hard working and personable. Also, being a female Capt I appreciated them never talking down to me. They were awesome!!
