Anita Dee I Yacht- Navy Pier - Description
Mr. Tony Difiglio began his journey in the yacht charter business in 1973 as a business owner of a manufacturing company searching for a unique venue to entertain his top clients. He chose the Summer Mist, one of the few yachts available for charter rental at that time. After five years of increasingly successful events, this 49 passenger vessel was going to be sold. Realizing the success of his events and receiving a little nudge from his colleagues, Tony Difiglio bought the Summer Mist to continue hosting his clients.
Docked at Burnham Harbor, Tony and his wife Anita decided to rent out the Summer Mist to other business owners and interested parties. Tony quickly realized that not only was this charter rental successful, but that there was a demand for hosting larger groups as well.
In 1981, Tony sold the Summer Mist and purchased a 90 foot, 127 passenger yacht and named it the Anita Dee after his wife, Anita Difiglio. With this purchase, Tony began his second business, Tee Dee Enterprises, Inc, dba Anita Dee Yacht Charters.Originally docked at Burnham Harbor, the Anita Dee moved to Navy Pier in 1986, companion to only one other charter vessel docked at the Pier.
