CEO and Founder Defalco Construction
Mike Falco is Founder, President & CEO of Defalco Construction, one of the premier open shop cast-in-place concrete foundation and superstructure subcontractors in New York City. With more than 20 years' experience in the concrete industry in the world's most demanding market, his hands-on ownership style has seen the business involved in major projects in the office, residential, commercial and civic sectors. 'I've been running high-performance V-bottom boats, mostly Outerlimits powerboats, for more than 15 years and a 48-foot MTI with Mercury 1650 engines for a few years,' said Falco.
'For some time I've wanted to get involved with offshore racing and be part of an international series, and I regard Class 1 as the pinnacle of the sport,' explains Falco. 'This is an exciting and challenging opportunity to compete against the best boats with the best equipment and best crews in the world. The Mercury Racing 1100 turbos have brought a modern, reliable package to the class and Powerboat P1's international TV broadcast deals and live streaming take the racing into fans' homes worldwide.'
