Yacht Broker Derek Mader – Executive Yacht – Toronto, Ontario
Derek Mader is a yacht broker in Toronto and your top source for local boats and Open Yachts.
My interest in boats started at a very young age. Whether it was playing with boats on the beach with my brother and sister or fishing with our family on Georgian Bay and Lake Huron. Those early days as a kid really shaped my continued interest in the water and the lifestyle that surrounds it. The memories that shaped these summers were the blueprint for something that I have been dedicated to for over 30 years.
As a young teenager, my passion for boating drove me to build my first boat with my dad. The boat I had envisioned couldn’t be found, but it didn’t stop my desires to build the right boat for the way I was going to use it.
The decision to move beyond that passion and desire with a career was supported by a Marine Technology Recreation Skilled Trades Diploma through Georgian College. The relationships, education and experience through that program proved to be an invaluable asset as I built my career through a wide range of positions in the marine industry over the next 25+ years.
As a proud father of two, we enjoy a variety of sports together which include hockey, skiing, cycling and boating to name a few. We’re an active family who enjoy cottage time as well as travelling abroad. Truly nothing more rewarding than being a father. As I reflect on what shapes our lives, it’s not what we do, it’s who we do it with that enriches it.Contact yacht broker Derek Mader, located in Toronto, for more information or to schedule a showing of one of the Open Yachts for sale represented by Derek Mader.
