What started as a hobby shop in the Ft. Lauderdale area over 35 years ago for Joe Maggio, owner of Salt Shaker Marine in Punta Gorda, evolved into a successful custom boat building, retrofitting and fabrication business because of his love for sportfishing. Joe built the world’s largest center console — an ultimate 53-foot fishing machine — back in 1979 so he could fish his way to Venezuela and back. On the return trip Joe’s wife commented that the boat was going so fast it was “shaking the salt right out of the ocean,” hence the name Salt Shaker. The boat wasn’t for sale but attracted so much attention that others wanted one like it.
   The interest in his boat spawned a boat building business for folks with very special interests. This also led to the fabrication business that is now a major part of Salt Shaker because there no one else around to do the fabrication these semi-custom boats required. And this led to the retrofitting part of the shop because other boat owners wanted features similar to the very limited Salt Shaker line on their boats.

   Salt Shaker boats only produced 15 boats a year regardless of the demand, and demand there was. In the period between 1979 and 1988, only 50- to 60-foot boats were produced at a manufacturing site that employed about 200 people. Joe built boats for President Bush, the King of Spain, the King of Sweden and a host of other notables. But he said that the process was becoming too much like a business and he wasn’t enjoying himself any more.

 

   So he relocated his shop in Punta Gorda in 1988 because he fell in love with the place — a  jewel is what he called it. In Punta Gorda he scaled back his extremely profitable business and began making semi-custom 30-foot center consoles as the little sister to the 53-footer. Salt Shaker doesn’t build the 50- and 60-foot boats anymore; they concentrate on smaller boats.

 

   But the boats they do build are showcases for everything else they do. Their retrofitting and fabrication business took off and boaters from all over the world come to Salt Shaker to have their boats customized.

 

   Joe said that he didn’t want to build just another boat and in the process of retrofitting other world-class boats, he was able to see (up close and personal, as only someone drilling into other boats can) the good ideas and incorporate them into his boats.
