John Carello has been selling boats since 1986. Twelve years earlier, he and his daughter had attended a Los Angeles Convention Center boat show. At the show, he purchased a Venture 25 sailboat, and they began sailing together. As his interest in sailing developed, he would own several boats, and today lives aboard a power vessel in Marina del Rey. Born in Rockaway Beach, John graduated from Miami Beach High School in 1956, served four years in the U.S. Air Force, and by 1960 had relocated to Southern California.
California Yacht Company’s Tom Suchy sadly passed away on Christmas Day, 2019. Suchy was an attorney who loved being around boats more than courts. For anyone interested, this is an excerpt from “Eight Bells for Tom Suchy | A Celebration of Life” (less than 3 mins).
