More About Me
I'm an avid boater and sports fisherman like so many of us here in Florida. Born and raised in Bradenton, Florida's west coast is truly my back yard. The Marine industry is literally a family business for me. My father (Gary), uncle (Ron), and multiple cousins all work at Galati Yacht Sales today, but our boating roots go back to the late 1970's. Before starting high school I cut my teeth in the family business commissioning sailboats and powerboats for Hirsh Yacht Sales in Bradenton under the watchful eye of my Dad and uncle.
The experience I gained selling and servicing dynamic brands in the 1980's like Chris Craft, Trojan Yachts, and Donzi were all early building blocks to my overall understanding of the marine industry. In the early 90's I spent several years in the factory at Wellcraft building boats and gaining knowledge about the various manufacturing methods of the time followed by more selling experience with brands like Baja, Hydrasport, Maxum, Riviera, Ocean Yachts and many more. In 2004 my family and I moved to SW Florida and I soon joined Team Galati as a licensed Yacht Broker like my father and uncle already had done years earlier.
The Galati's "Family owned and operated" approach to business and the top tier brands they represented like Viking, Tiara, Princess and Cruisers, were a perfect fit that would enable me to reach the top of my profession. A fit so perfect that I have been here for over 12 years now and I can't imagine being anywhere else. Today I oversee sales and operations of our beautiful Naples office with a hand picked group of seasoned professional Yacht Brokers and couldn't be happier.
I've been blessed with a loving family, great friends, dear clients, a fantastic job and a great family to work for. What more can you ask for? If you are ready for the best experience you have ever had in a large recreational marine purchase, call me direct. It would be my honor to help you buy or sell the perfect yacht.
