Mike received his first boat for Christmas at age 9 and although it was only a 12 foot skiff with a 4hp outboard, he has been hooked on boating since. After receiving his Bachelors degree he pursued a career in “Corporate America” where he gained valuable knowledge in the areas of Client/Account Management and Employee Relations. All the while spending all his free time boating, aspiring and planning on turning his passion into a career. After several years of successful business ventures Mike was finally afforded the opportunity to become a Yacht Broker and attributes his success to his passion for boating and sincere concern and enjoyment for selling FUN. Mike is now an experienced Yacht Broker by many years, a Member of the Florida Yacht Brokers Association and continues to improve his boating knowledge by staying in tune with the latest and greatest the Marine Industry has to offer, all the while continuing to expand his Customer and Client Base.

“The experience I’ve gained in listening to, understanding, empathizing with and respecting the needs of others in order to accomplish a common goal has provided my clients with a comfortable and effective buying and selling experience and has provided me with a respected network of fellow boaters, colleagues, customers and friends”.
