Michael “Mike” Murphy is a South Jersey resident, having been born in the area, raised in Northfield and now resides in Linwood. From the time his dad brought home an aluminum skiff when he was 8 years old, Mike was hooked on boating and fishing, turning into what locals call a “Bay Rat.” Having “sand in his shoes,” he chose to stay in the area where he lives with his wife, Marie, another boating and fishing enthusiast.
After his discharge from the U.S. Navy in 1969, where he provided gunfire support for the U.S. Army and Marines in Viet Nam on the destroyer USS Corry, he entered the title insurance industry. He spent 46 years in the business before retiring as Vice President and New Jersey State Manager for a Fortune 500 Company, First American Title Insurance Company.
His passion for fishing both inshore and offshore, along with cruising the coastal waters and Chesapeake Bay, has led Mike to join United Yacht Sales. He can apply his boating experience and enthusiasm to others looking to enjoy the boating and fishing life.
Mike has owned many boats over the years and currently enjoys fishing and cruising along the coast on his 48’ Ocean Yacht SS. His boat is berthed at the Seaview Harbor Marina in Longport, NJ, where United Yacht Sales maintains one of their premier Jersey Shore offices.
Whether pursuing your dreams for a new boat or looking to sell your current boat, Mike’s experience on the water with a solid business background and strong work ethic, make him the right person to have working for you.
