Sailcraft was founded over forty years ago in 1975 by Andy Denmark. Ralph Kudart served as owner from 1983 until 2000 when he sold the marina to Alan Arnfast. Eighteen years later, Alan retired and sold Sailcraft to Mike and Jennifer Pawlikowski.
Mike spent over fifteen years working at his family’s marina in Rumson, NJ, where he gained firsthand knowledge of daily marina management as well as technical and operational expertise . He received his Mercury Outboard technician certification in 2004, followed by his Yamaha Master technician certification in 2011. Mike’s extensive marina background also includes experience as yard manager, parts manager, dock master, service and maintenance manager, rental fleet manager, equipment operator, and warranty claims manager.
Jennifer’s professional expertise is rooted in small business. She previously owned and operated a corporate meeting/event planning business and more recently a fitness studio. Her keen ability to manage time and resources is a valuable asset to the future of Sailcraft’s operations.
Mike and Jennifer are committed to preserving and extending Sailcraft’s excellent history and reputation in the local community. In addition to implementing more efficient operational software, Sailcraft will become a certified Mercury Marina Dealership within the next 4-8 months.
