Meet Roberto Fazzi
I was born and raised in Sao Paulo City, Brazil. Most of my childhood was on the ocean, between Sp and Rj, where my dad, a real sport fisherman, had his own boat, so I grew up running Blue Marlins Tournaments close to that area. My passion for the ocean and yachts was simultaneous and immediate.
I started to sell yachts at age 21 and became an Azimut dealer in Sao Paulo a few years later …I had the opportunity to build a strong and Hi-End clientele and also be part of the most important international boat shows around the world, with my clients and buyers ..( Cannes – Monaco – Genoa – Ft Lauderdale – São Paulo – Rio de Janeiro ). My highlight was introducing some important Italian Brands to the South American yacht market as Sacs and Magellano Trawlers and becoming manager of sales of these Brands in Brazil.
With also large expertise on pre-owned ones, because used to accept trade-ins on most of our sales, I had the chance to open markets for other states in Brazil and visit the most important places in the country for the yacht business.
Not long after finding my place in Florida, I met Lee Steed and we had a chance to make a deal with him, on a Sea Ray 45 Sundancer and start this beautiful friendship.. Meanwhile I also startup a Charter company in Miami.
With this knowledge and experience, I imported and shipped 03 (three) different yachts to the USA, which match the American standards and market.
I am very thankful for this wonderful opportunity to join Off The Hook Yachts!
