President & Founder of DiMillo's Yacht Sales
Location: Portland, Maine
Office: 207-773-7632 x249
Born and raised in Portland, Maine. I have been around the waterfront, in Portland, all of my life. I worked as a dock hand at the marina as a child, crewed on many of my father’s power boats and, of course, worked in his restaurants. I earned a BS in biology from University of Vermont and went on to work in medical equipment sales in Southern California as a young adult, but home was always calling. The opportunity to manage the family marina came up, and I moved back east in 1995. I worked to create DiMillo’s into a cruising destination for yachts of all sizes and at the same time noticed the void of a higher end brokerage in Portland. I established a brokerage in 1997, quickly diversified into new boat sales, and today we offer the full package with a complete service department as well. While we have represented a few other brands in the past, we are happy to have focused on two of the leading brands in the business–Sabre Yachts and Back Cove Yachts. Both offer cutting edge design and technology, and fit nicely into the needs of the customers we serve. We are proud to have been their largest dealer in the country for several years running. I am actively involved in the sales and service process, and enjoy the best staff in the business in Portland and Freeport, ME, Glen Cove, NY, and Oxford and West River, MD.
I enjoy boating with my family from Montauk, New York to Bar Harbor, Maine, skiing at Sugarloaf in the winter, and yes, working too much. I love my job and enjoy all of the people I have met through work and cruising.
