Sales Professional in Fort Lauderdale, FL
Boating is in Mike Scalisi’s blood. He grew up in Weymouth, Massachusetts at the boatyard his family still owns today. After graduating from the University of Rhode Island with a degree in marine affairs and marine resource development, Mike moved to Fort Lauderdale, where he started out washing boats for Allied Marine to get his feet wet, and his career blossomed from there.
Mike had a 100-Ton USCG captain’s license, so he found work quickly. He took a job as a mate on a 100’ Westship that traveled with a classic 46’ Merritt. For six months, they traveled the Caribbean, visiting virtually every Caribbean island, from St. Thomas to the Grenadines, and then spent three months in the Bahamas, competing in the Bahamas Billfish Championships.
He went on to run a few private sportfish vessels before becoming the fleet captain for Lazzara Yachts. Mike’s responsibilities there included all new factory deliveries, captain and crew orientations, offshore closings, and brokerage fleet maintenance. After five years, he accepted a position as a yacht broker with Marine Max. His boat-brand specialties were Hatteras and Cabo Yachts, but he also dealt with brokerage vessels of all shapes and sizes. In 2012, Mike was named the number one Cabo salesman in the country.
Today, HMY is proud to have Mike as a member of its expert team. His knowledge, passion, and dedication to his clients are well known throughout the industry.
Mike enjoys spending time with his wife Nicole and their three daughters. You may also see him in fishing tournaments or on the waters around South Florida aboard his classically restored 28’ Mako, “NADICOLE.”
