Michael Paul Demarco, Sr. was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts. Before moving to Florida in 1999 he was the owner of a marina in the Boston area with a total number of 100 slips. The complex also included a full service yachting center with both dry and wet storage, outboard and inboard motor service, yacht brokerage and sales of slips. Michael was raised in a true fishing family and was piloting his father’s boat by age 7 and fishing from Boston down thru Cape Cod and surrounding areas throughout his teens. He brags that “boating is in my blood, mixed in with a little bit of New England saltwater.”
Coming from a family of New England boaters he fell in love at a young age with being out on the water. “In the spring we were fishing for cod and in the summer it was for blues. Now here in South Florida it’s dolphin, yellowtail and tuna. Boston is where I cut my teeth at a young age learning the yachting industry by repairing engines and boats. It was a great way to grow up.” Since his arrival in South Florida in 1999 he has become fully integrated into the yachting and fishing lifestyle of South Florida and the Keys. He tells his New England friends and family to “Come to the Keys for a slice of heaven”.
“My idea of success is doing exactly what you are good at and enjoying each day one day at a time.” This attitude, combined with his knowledge of yachts and seamanship, as well as a past family history of yachting has led to success in today’s field of yacht sales.
The key to his success is listening to his clients and putting the client’s interests first and foremost. He finds a great deal of satisfaction in doing the footwork and researching the current yacht market in order to find the best fit for his client in yacht design and features, as well as in negotiating the best price possible. When selling a client’s yacht, he uses his expertise to determine a current yet competitive market value along with presenting the yacht in the most appealing way through numerous avenues.
