Michael Yurocko, CCIM, and Matthew Rotolante, CCIM
The industrial real estate sector has persevered throughout the pandemic, with supply chains and e-commerce keeping millions of people stocked with groceries, home supplies, and other necessities amid the instability. Two CCIMs in the Sunshine State completed a deal in 2020 that correlated to changes in consumer behavior related to COVID-19.
Michael Yurocko, CCIM, vice president and broker for SLC Commercial in Stuart, Fla., represented Packers of Indian River in its $5.5 million sale of a 100,000-sf industrial facility in Fort Pierce, Fla., to Contender Boats, represented by Matthew Rotolante, CCIM, SIOR, president of Lee & Associates in South Florida.
“Boaters recognized early in the pandemic that they could still entertain on the water and remain safer in an outdoor setting,” Rotolante says. “This higher demand led to an increased waiting list of boat orders for Contender, which finally lured them into making the investment.”
Yurocko, who represented Packers of Indian River, noted the appeal of the property in an already competitive market on Florida’s Treasure Coast.
“For buyers needing exposure, the property has 1,200 feet of direct Florida Turnpike frontage,” he says. “Also, the 100,000-sf facility is on 19.45 acres, so the low coverage ratio means there is additional land for potential expansion if needed by the buyer.”
Retrofitting a citrus packing plant to become a facility where Contender Boats could produce models up to 32 feet in length presented its own set of challenges. The buyer worked with an overhead crane manufacturer to design a system for lifting boats from a grade-level prep to a dock-high production line. Contractor estimates and layout design were a bit onerous for Contender, but overcome through creative design and a little legwork.
With CCIMs on both sides of the deal, Rotolante and Yurocko remained confident that two reasonable parties could tie up all the loose ends.
“CCIM stands for more than just an education — it comprises a network of high-quality, ethical professionals whose know-how helps facilitate deals at the highest level,” Rotolante says. “Working with Mike was a great representation of this.”
