Atlantic, Caribbean and Western Pacific.

his military service to the civilian market where he has spent over 20
years in various technology related industries and business operations
roles. Michael holds a Bachelors of Science in Business Management

experience provides him with an exceptional foundation to manage all
aspects of the yacht buying and selling business worldwide.
