Ryan Heslin - Trident Funding

Ryan Heslin


Ryan comes to Trident with extensive experience both in finance as well as the boating industry. As a former yacht broker, he knows the purchase and sale process from every angle. His background makes him uniquely qualified to assist brokers in guiding their clients to closing.

Ryan is an avid outdoorsman. Growing up in Colorado, he spent a lot of time outside. Camping, hiking, river rafting, and snowboarding have always been favorite pastimes since he was young. His boating experience dates back to a young age as well. Fishing in the bay off Long Island, he developed a strong passion for being on the water. Attending college in Santa Barbara he learned how to surf and became certified as a scuba diver. It was during this time that he learned about exploring open water and has been hooked ever since!

Ryan resides in San Diego, California. You may see him banging around the bay in his custom-built Boston Whaler, or slamming down oysters in Shelter Island, but he always puts his clients’ needs at the top of his priority list to ensure they have a seamless journey when purchasing their dream boats. Give him a call, he is ready to help!

Whether you are buying a Convertible, Wakeboard boat, Trawler, Center Console or Yacht, Ryan has the boat lending partners and experience to secure you the best possible financing terms.
