About Wally Catalano

A St. Petersburg native, Wally enjoys boating throughout Florida with his family and friends. He spent 22 years in the banking industry before deciding to pursue his passion for boating, jumping into boat sales at Gulfwind Marine (now known as MarineMax). For more than 10 years he led several boating getaways with family, friends and clients to destinations such as the Bahamas, Florida Keys, South Seas Plantation, Longboat Key and the many other beautiful destinations Florida has to offer.

One of Wally's proudest moments was receiving the "Employee of the Year" award from MarineMax for his dedication to teamwork, customer service and satisfaction. His customers know that he will always do his best to seek out the best boat to suit their family and lifestyle.

Having worked with Tom George for more than 35 years, Wally continues his passion for boating and looks forward to new adventures and new friends.


"Wally was the best!"

"Wally, Barbe and I wanted to thank the Tom George Yacht Group and you in particular for the prompt and professional manner in which you sold our 38 Tiara for us. As you are aware, we had our boat listed for over one year with the local dealer who sells Tiara and we did not receive one offer or showing of our vessel in that period. We feel we lost value during this period and are very unhappy with the way in which we were treated. In three months of listing our boat with you and TGYG, we closed on the sale of our boat and with mixed feelings watched her leave our dock for the last time with her new owners. As a side benefit the new owners were very excited and we are confident they have purchased a very good boat. Wally, we would be pleased for you to use us as a reference for any potential clients of yours and TGYG. As having purchased a boat from you years ago and now selling one with you, when we purchase another boat you are the only person we would consider working with."

"Wally, just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for the outstanding service you and the staff at Tom George Yacht Group displayed during the recent sale of our Hatteras and the purchase of our 38 Tiara. I know our time line was short in accomplishing both tasks, however, your hard work and persistence really paid off. I don't believe many other brokers could have handled both transactions in the time frame you did. I also wanted to thank you for your referral concerning marine insurance. Frank was very service oriented, worked quickly and gave us a very competitive rate. We will gladly refer our boating friends to you and the Tom George Yacht Group."
