Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Michael Geraghty. As a Northrop & Johnson yacht broker, I am dedicated to treating my new and past clientele with integrity, compassion and fun while sharing my and our teams professional, knowledgeable expertise.
One of my most significant accomplishments has been using my 57 years of yachting time combined with Northrop and Johnson’s worldwide leading systems & team to simplify and improve my client’s yachting experience.
I also firmly believe in a people-first business model. When a broker puts his clients’, colleagues’ and teams’ wants, needs, interests, and desires first, success always follows.
I was born and raised in Amityville, New York. Growing up on the south shores of Long Island. I was one of the youngest members of Narrasketuck Yacht Club, having raced sailboats and operating power boats before my seventh birthday. While attending S.U.N.Y. Maritime College, I enjoyed competitive racing and helped the team to second in the nation.
I was tempted by my love of the ocean and tropical weather to cruise south on delivery to St. Thomas. I enjoyed more than a decade of deliveries and charters, captaining large power boats and sailing yachts. In 1990, I moved to East Hampton N.Y. and Captained for a very kind, wealthy couple. Newport Rhode Island beckoned me to come Captain and work for Jamestown Boat Yard as a rigger and lift operator. When the industry tanked, I managed three stores for West Marine and completed district manager training. I was then asked to be Director of Sales for Defender Industries. From there, I began my career as a yacht broker 21 years ago at Eastern Yacht Sales and transitioned to Northrop & Johnson.
I will continue helping my customers to enjoy carefree yachting in power and sail.

My Outside-office Life
I love spending quality time with my son Peter (27), daughter Ana (26) and my large family. I’m involved in numerous charities and with my band WAVE AVENUE.
