The brokerage said Dailey has worked in the marine industry for more than 35 years. He started as a sailmaker and managed the North Sails Long Island loft before accepting a yacht sales and brokerage position at Nautor’s Swan New York.

Having become the top-performing U.S. salesman for the Swan 45s, Dailey spearheaded the Swan 42 project between Nautor’s Swan and the New York Yacht Club, becoming the top salesman worldwide for the NYYC/Swan 42s, the brokerage said.

Dailey comes to McMichael after many years at Sparkman & Stephens, where he was a yacht and charter broker. The brokerage yachts he helped clients buy or sell included racing and cruising sailboats, extreme latitude adventure cruising sailboats and ocean-going round-the-world trawlers and more standard powerboats, such as Tiaras and picnic boats.

Growing up on powerboats before learning how to sail, Dailey has raced or sailed boats ranging from dinghies to 100-foot-plus superyachts, including high-performance vessels such as the maxi-catamaran Play Station.

He is a member of the Stamford Yacht Club, the New York Yacht Club and the Storm Trysail Club and is a past vice president of the Yacht Racing Association of Long Island Sound. The brokerage also said he is also a world-class marine photographer, with many published images and artwork displayed in galleries and private collections.

McMichael will celebrate its 80th anniversary in the yacht brokerage and service industry in 2015. It has a team of seven brokers operating out of offices in Mamaroneck, Newport, R.I., and a new sales and service operation in Essex, Conn., that will open early next year.
