An accomplished listee, Mr. Di Nicolantonio celebrates many years' experience in his professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes he has accrued in his field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Mr. Di Nicolantonio, a mechanical engineer who spent many years in the field, worked for some very impressive organizations over the years, beginning with DuPont Engineering Development Laboratory in Wilmington, DE, in the early 1960s. Over the next two decades, he went to work for Exxon Research and Engineering in Florham Park, NJ, and Lago Oil in Aruba in the technology section before returning to New Jersey to work for Exxon Chemical. In 1987, Mr. Di Nicolantonio branched out on his own and formed Di Nicolantonio Engineering and Construction as president in Philadelphia, PA. From 1987 to 1999, he was named senior engineering associate with Exxon Chemical in Baytown, TX, while simultaneously serving as president of Nasa Oil Inc., also in Texas, from 1992 to 1998.

Today, Mr. Di Nicolantonio is the owner and chief designer of American Offshore Powerboats. Working in this capacity since 1999, he has always been passionate about designing and building faster engines and boats, so getting into this specific niche has been very personally rewarding for him. In addition to running his business, Mr. Di Nicolantonio continues to lend his services as a part-time consultant in the field.

American Offshore Powerboats is the premier place to purchase excellent, high quality offshore boats, lake boats, and equipment. As the company continues to evolve, the finish work, gel coat graphics, and detailing is better than ever. Their lineup of performance deck boats extends the defining American Offshore experience, one that has continuously grown since its introduction. Using only the finest bi-directional fiberglass and vinyl ester resins with a Baltec edge grain balsa core, American Offshore is one of the few boat builders that takes the time to bond the deck and hull together with fiberglass to create a unitized construction that is more durable and less likely to flex and break. The company carries the finest designs of boats, as well as everything from bare hulls with interiors, to gauges, controls, and upholstery, and turnkey boats, and customers can have their dream boats customized in just 10 weeks on average.

Receiving a BS in Mechanical Engineering at Villanova University in 1963, and an MS in Mechanical Engineering at Lehigh University in 1965, Mr. Di Nicolantonio is a registered professional engineer in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Texas. He currently holds 21 U.S. patents in hinged fraction trays and low residence time cracking coils, as well as numerous other U.S. and foreign patents. Notably, the cracking coils became the standard for Exxon in 1980.

A longstanding member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, Mr. Di Nicolantonio was the recipient of a National Science Foundation fellowship in 1964. He has also been named to Who's Who in Science and Engineering for his work. Married to Maureen Allan with five children, when he isn't busy with his family, Mr. Di Nicolantonio loves to race boats.
