Nick Cardoza On Hot Yacths Miami
Hot Yachts Miami welcomes fans on board the most luxurious boats on the planet and into the world of the people who sell them. But life as a yacht broker is anything but plain sailing.
The reality series sees party-loving sales crew members competing to sell or charter luxury vessels. With an eye-watering commission of between 10 and 15%, one deal can land a broker millions. In other words, ruthless competition is the name of the game.
Premiered on Paramount+ on 3 August 2023, Hot Yachts Miami stars Vika Avramchuk, Fotis Geranios, Jack Coppola, Katya Hall, Nick Cardoza, Liliana Lopez, Kaile Justine, and Juno Prudhomm.
Ahead of the premiere, Nick spoke to Daily Star and opened up about stealing clients from fellow brokers. He said, “[I would] only under extenuating circumstances. I reserve that tactic for when other brokers p*** me off or don’t play nice. It’s like, the lion doesn’t eat the hyenas unless they p*** him off enough, then it’s all out war. I recently had a broker cut me out of a deal so I called the owner of every listing and gave them an offer they couldn’t refuse to give me their listing. I’ll broker a yacht for free just to f*** you back. Don’t play with me.”
Nick Cardoza Net Worth
Nick Cardoza, if one were to believe online reports, owns a net worth of more than $25 million. He is the president of Cardoza Yachts LLC. Based in Miami Beach, Florida, Cardoza Yachts LLC, the yacht brokerage company focused on building a business with yachts. The company’s motto is — Buy, Charter, Earn.
Nicknamed Mr. Yachts by his friends because of his obsession with yachts, Nick is a discreet individual. When asked about his most expensive sale to date in 2023, he refrained from giving details. However, he said, “It had a lot of features. It wasn’t just me selling it, there were other people involved. A lot of these deals are put together by a lot of different brokers at once. It was a lot. We had two tenders in the boat, and we had a helicopter pad but no helicopter – we left that for somebody else. And one swimming pool, one large Jacuzzi; a lot of technology inside like automatic doors and a spa. But that’s as far as I’ll say!”
What’s more, Nick doesn’t care about having a bad reputation because he believes he is simply better than them. Admittedly, he focuses solely on his business.
Back in 2020, Nick joined Merle Wood & Associates as a broker to assist clients with yacht sales, charters, and new construction. Upon his appointment, he expressed, “Joining an internationally recognized brokerage such as Merle Wood & Associates allows me to serve my clients in the best way possible, and I’m looking forward to expanding my reach globally in the luxury yacht market.”
A member of the International Yacht Brokers Association, Nick has enjoyed stints at VanDutch, Ferretti Group South America, HMY, and Allied Marine. While VanDutch, he also co-founded a tech startup.
Nick attended culinary school in New York and Europe. He later worked on motor and sailing yachts in various positions including a chef, deckhand, and captain. He then moved to South Florida to work as a fleet/corporate captain for yacht brokerages and yacht companies. In the meantime, he provided yacht management services for owners.
