During a career in the yachting industry that spans over 27 years, Crystal Coast Interiors Owner Cathy DiMauro has established a reputation for building solid relationships with her clients. Growing up with a passion and fascination for boats, she has worked and played hard in the waters of the Crystal Coast. After working for a local boat builder for a few years, Cathy began heading up a crew of 14 and was responsible for the interior and exterior wood finishing and finial detail on new construction. Later she went back to school to study interior design and realized with the shift from charter boat to sport fishing yachts, that the clientele needed a designer to help with their selections. With her attention to detail and knowledge of space planning, Cathy maintains the daily functionality of a boat while creating stunning custom interiors.
