Discover Our Tradition & History

In 1970 Michael Galati Sr. moved his wife and 5 children to Anna Maria Island, Florida, with little belongings but a big dream. He purchased a tornado-devastated marina on Tampa Bay, with the dream of creating a service and boat dealership. “We’ll work hard and we’ll make it,” Michael would tell his wife, Anna Maria. Besides caring for her family, Anna Maria Galati also managed the marina store and handled all the billing and deliveries. When Michael Galati Sr. passed away in 1992, the company ownership passed to his children. The Galati siblings grew the business in to the number one dealership with locations in the US, Costa Rica, and Mexico.
