Sales Associate / Yacht Broker
Tim started working at Fish Tale in 1989. Before moving to sales, Tim worked as a marine technician at Fish Tale. He holds certifications on Yamaha and Volvo Engines. This is helpful for Tim’s customers as well, since he is able to share his mechanical know-how in the sales experience. Tim is a Licensed Yacht Broker, as well as holding extensive knowledge of all new boats Fish Tale has to offer. Tim is an avid fisherman and has been on boats since he was just a kid. Speaking of which, his son Ben shares his love of fishing and has been known to “out-fish” his dad!
After spending the last decade making the trek between his home state of Alaska and SWFL, he decided to settle down in Naples. His love of the water is what originally brought him down here and what ultimately kept him here. Whether he’s boating, jet skiing, paddle boarding, windsurfing or kayaking, he feels most at home out on the Gulf.
Having a master captain license, Joe has boated the waters of both Alaska and Florida and says there’s nothing like boating in SWFL. He loves being a part of the Fish Tale family and says the best part of his day is when he gets to take his customers out on the water. With his knowledge and passion, your boating experience with Joe is guaranteed to be one of a kind. Come in and talk to Joe today!
Michael started boating on his parents Catalina 22 sailboat on the Chesapeake Bay. A move to Southern California, in 1973, provided fun experiences on that same boat out of Marina Del Ray. “My father was a VP of marketing for a large pump company and traveled internationally weekly”. Boating was a needed retreat & provided lasting family memories from that busy lifestyle. A new addition to the family came in the form of a 16ft brown runabout in the late ‘70’s which remained with them until the early 90’s. A move to a home located on the Connecticut River, in 1980, added a racing ULDB sailboat, 30ft Sportfish, and an orange inflatable. Michael worked many summers at the two top marinas on the Connecticut River taking care of 50 plus boats including several 100 ft yachts.
A move to Florida in the mid 80’s (to Casey Key then to a home in Tampa Bay) added several more boats for inshore & offshore fishing and scuba diving experiences. As an advanced Nitrox diver, he enjoys spearfishing & fishing in the Gulf of Mexico, Keys or Dry Tortugas. He brings over 9 years of new & used boat sales experience to the Fishtale family & customers. “ Fish Tale Boats & the beautiful Naples area could not be a better fit for me”
