Pier One Yacht Sales owners Len Garofoli and Tony Mondello announced today that Paradigm Yacht Sales located at Cape Harbour Marina in Cape Coral, FL has merged their company with Pier One Yacht Sales.
Pat Roush started Paradigm Yacht Sales in 2003 with an office in Cape Coral. Pat moved the office to Cape Harbour Marina located in Cape Coral, FL in 2007. Pat Roush, who was Sales Manager of Jefferson Yachts before starting Paradigm has 20 years experience in the boating industry.
“This is a win win situation with benefits” says Roush. “With the collective knowledge and experience of all parties involved and the worldwide exposure of Pier One Yacht Sales, this is one merger where the most important part will be for our clients. They are the ones who will benefit the most”. “We will not be closing the office in Cape Harbour Marina” Roush went on to say, “If anything we will be expanding its impact. This gives both Paradigm clients and Pier One clients who are from Cape Coral, Ft. Myers, St James City and Matlacha a closer office while still getting all the benefits of Pier One’s three other locations”. The Cape Harbour office will now be called, Pier One Yacht Sales at Cape Harbour.
Pier One Yacht Sales presently has three locations, Burnt Store Marina, Cape Haze Plaza and its main office located in Fishermen’s Village in Punta Gorda. Pier One was founded by Len Garofoli, former Vice President of Navigator Yachts Inc. back in the fall of 2004. “Any firm in Florida would have jumped at the chance to work with Pat and his team” said Garofoli, “All I can say is that I am honored that he is now on our team”.
Pier One Yacht Sales started as a dealer for Navigator Yachts, Californian Yachts and Legacy yachts. Garofoli expanded the brokerage part of the firm when he moved from Gasparilla Marina to Fishermen’s Village back in 2006.
In October of 2011, Garofoli brought in Tony Mondello, former VP of IBM, as a full partner. “These are the places to be” says Mondello. “Three resort marinas with over 3 million people a year, from all over the world, walking by our windows. We have a selling tool that no other firm in the area can offer”.
This is the third brokerage firm to join under the Pier One banner in the last 18 months. The merger now makes Pier One Yacht Sales the largest brokerage firm between Charlotte and Lee County that has four fully staffed offices with a total of 22 brokers serving South West Florida.
