Mike has been enjoying life on the water for the past 40 years. It started on private yachts and navigating waters from Alaska to Central America; Key West to Boston; the Bahamas and the Caribbean, with many years spent in Cabo San Lucas and the mainland of Mexico.
Over years of running vessels, Mike also owned and operated his own yacht management and maintenance company, often holding over 75 accounts with a full time crew. Working with many owners he was often the first person to know when an owner of a boat was ready to sell or buy. He saw an opportunity to enter the brokerage end of the business in 1995. He knew what it would take to help sell the vessel and also what to look for in a boat when helping the owner find the best vessel for his yachting needs.
In 2000, Mike opened up his own brokerage in beautiful San Diego. Hallmark Yachts Inc. is a family run business and conveniently located on Harbor Island just minutes from the San Diego International Airport. All of Hallmark Yachts representatives have extensive boating experience on the water as well from owning vessels themselves or running them for clients.
Mike has always kept the motto of "Service Beyond the Sale", which is also the crux of the Outer Reef Yachts brand.
Jeff Druek, President and CEO of Outer Reef Yachts stated, "We are very pleased to welcome Hallmark Yachts as our new representative for the Southwest region of the United States. Mike and his team have a true understanding of their market's needs and will be an excellent resource to Outer Reef Yachts prospects and customers within their territory. We are grateful for the opportunity to build upon their expertise and to work with them to deliver our high quality, safe and efficient collection of Outer Reef Yachts to the Pacific Southwest yachting communities".
