YPS was founded in the late seventies by Ned Johnson after he returned from an America's Cup campaign onboard Intrepid. The focus at that time was on the recreational marine market and continued as such for over ten years, eventually evolving into the Outdoor Industry.
The agency has earned the respect and trust of a wide range of dealers and manufacturers throughout the industry demonstrated by its staying power over the past thirty some years. We pride ourselves on our delivery of service and techincal product expertise to the marketplace. Our associates have over 70 years of experience in the outdoor market and we're all participants in the activities we promote. We have four staff members domiciled along the I-5 corridor between Seattle and Portland and a formal business office and showroom in the heart of Seattle's Fremont District.
