Humphreys Yacht Design is delighted to announce the launch of its new website and an exciting new part of the company - Humphreys Brokerage. The new website, with its easy to use functionality, simple navigation and substantial content, aims to cater for all existing and future clients' needs. The site has been developed to reflect the continuing growth of Humphreys Yacht Design and to keep sailors up to date with all the latest news and projects.
Managing Director Rob Humphreys said "for many businesses a good website is a shop window but in the case of our new site we hope it will serve as a front door as well. We want to offer everyone interested in our work a warm and friendly welcome as well as a clean, informative and up-to-date site".
HYD is also delighted to announce the launch of Humphreys Brokerage, a fully-accredited ABYA member. With over 3,000 Humphreys-designed boats on the water, the Brokerage division will allow existing and future owners to sell and buy through the design office's parallel business, leaning on the support that the extensive design archive provides and bolstered with the design team's instant availability to answer technical questions.
Heading up Humphreys Brokerage is Paul Kelly. Based in Lymington, Paul is no stranger to the Humphreys design office having skippered one of the 12 Challenge 72s in the Global Challenge Round the World race. With 10 years in the industry Paul brings a wealth of knowledge from both on and off the water as well as a passion for sailing. Commenting on the launch of the brokerage, Managing Director Rob Humphreys said "This is an exciting time for us all at Humphreys; it's a unique opportunity to move the Humphreys brand into the brokerage arena and to offer a new service to our loyal clients".
While the brokerage team will specialise in Humphreys designs, other designs will be available as well. Many of these are pre-owned raceboats - Open 60s, Volvo70s/60s and Class 40s to name but a few,but the main body of the listing comprises Oysters, Elans and Southerlys from the Humphreys stable. As Humphreys Brokerage kicks off it is rewarding to see that the total listing comprises over 100 boats.
