Marina Spotlights

Interview with the GM of MarineMax at Chelsea Piers, New York

Meet Scott Seisler


What made you choose a career in the marine industry?

I originally grew up on the Chesapeake Bay in Chesapeake City, Md., and my family always had a boat. I was also a professional water skier and stunt man in California, Florida and New Jersey until my body couldn't take it anymore.

What is your favorite place for quiet time at the marina?

One of my favorite things to do at the end of the day is relax on one of the yachts that we have for sale at the marina while observing all of the marina activity.

What is the last publication you read?

I read a lot of marine-related magazines, mainly boating and yachting focused to stay updated on the industry.

In your opinion, what is the hardest thing to learn for a new boater?

The most challenging thing for a new boater is docking. Hands down!

If you came back as a musical instrument which one would suit your personality best?

I would hope to come back as the entire rock band sound!

Name a boating tip that begins with Never...

Never drop your lines without starting your engine.

What is the most expensive thing in your refrigerator?

A bottle of Dom Pérignon from one of the yachts.

If you could appear on stage with any band in the world, who would it be?

The Foo Fighters.

What was the most unusual boat name that docked at your marina?

Maybe unusual isn't the word. I would have to say a cool boat name that I'll never forget was Maltese Falcon.

At the end of a workday at the marina, what is the first word that comes to mind?
