Broker-Intern in Tampa Bay
Mike is a native of the Tampa Bay area and has been fishing and cruising the local waters since he was old enough to take the wheel! His passion for fishing and navigating Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico has grown over the years and ultimately led him to seek a career in Yacht Sales.
After graduating from the University of South Florida with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management, and a focus on sales, Mike knew he had a drive and passion for boat sales and the marine industry. After his college graduation, he became a sales professional for Galati Yacht Sales and a graduate of the Yacht Brokers Institute with a focus on the Fundamentals and Essentials of Yacht Brokerage.
From an early age, he has been following Galati Yacht Sales and the fishing community in general. He fished tournaments during high school and purchased and sold several boats during that time. He also started his own business while in college and understands the utmost importance of Galati’s mission statement: “Consistently exceeding customer's expectations.”
"I was given the opportunity to join Galati Yacht Sales in their sales apprentice program, which provided me with real-time training in all aspects of the business – from service and parts room operations to the business office, marketing, and sales administration. I gained additional exposure working with Galati’s new boat lines and a wide range of used brokerage yachts. All of this experience, plus my boating background, put me in a position to provide clients with a higher level of customer service and care. "
Whether you’re in the market for a Sportfish boat, Motor Yacht, or center console, Mike has experience with a variety of different boats and can help guide you through the buying process. The used brokerage market is on fire right now, and he can also assist in listing your current vessel for sale. He looks forward to helping you and your family get out on the water and to share his passion with you.
