Mark began his passion for boating when he was only 14, spending every moment he could on ski boats and runabouts before he could even drive a car. After graduating from Penn State University, he was recruited and went to work for the United States Navy as a civilian, where he started his first career. Shortly thereafter, Mark started his own consulting firm, building that into a multi-million dollar success.
Mark combines his entrepreneurial spirit and technical background with his long time knowledge and passion for boating.
Throughout his life, Mark has gained a vast array of experience in both owning and operating various types of boats from a 50 foot convertible to a 21 foot runabout. He currently owns a large motoryacht as well as a small wakeboard boat for fun with the kids and to satisfy his occasional need for an adrenaline rush. Well-rounded is an understatement when discussing Mark’s experience in boating.
Mark uses a consultative approach to helping his clients when purchasing or selling a vessel. He combines his knowledge and experience to bring both discipline and professionalism to the yacht industry.
“As a consumer I expect thoroughness, technical accuracy, expert representation and promptness in all my dealings, and I would not expect you to settle for anything less!”
When not working, Mark spends much of his time giving back to the community. Mark volunteers his time at his church, as a leader in Boy Scouts, and by helping to coach his kids’ teams. He also enjoys fishing and cruising the bay.
