Having sailed yachts in his spare time for over 30 years and having built and owned his own yachts, Matty is using his passion and experience to benefit SeaNet owners, allowing him to give a whole new dimension to yacht build and management.
Mike CostaLeft in picture
At a young age Michael Costa (°1968), founder of the American based SeaNet Program in 2003; fell for the charms of the sea through his family’s boating experiences. After graduating from the Entrepreneurial Program at the University of Southern California, Costa began in the Financial Securities Industry and then shortly thereafter started his first company in the Media Technology Sector. After 10 prosperous years, he sold his first company and came up with the concept of fractional yacht ownership. Costa longed to enjoy the fond memories of boating on the sea once again but also realized he wouldn’t be able to spend enough time on a yacht to justify his initial and ongoing investment. As Costa contemplated his next business venture he noticed the fractional private jet sector and companies like NetJets.
