Tony was born in Frankfurt, Germany from a Russian family background and has a command of the Russian language. He moved to the Unites States where he grew up on Lake Erie, Pennsylvania and embraced the boating lifestyle at an early age. He continued his passion for boating in south Florida and neighboring Bahamas Islands with customers and friends after moving to Fort Lauderdale in 1977. Upon moving to Fort Lauderdale Tony soon began transforming his love and passion for boating to developing a career in boat and yachts sales for the next 39 years. His intent has always been to match the customer with the yacht that best fits their needs, creating a lasting relationship and lifelong friendships. As he says, he can't think of another industry to be part of other than yacht sales that can be more rewarding. Some of his best friends today are a result of a boat sale. Tony is a Licensed Florida Yacht Broker, member of the Florida Yacht Brokers Association and proud to be a member of the Intermarine sales team.
