Sunseeker Yachts are teaming up with the 50 year-old yacht brokerage firm, Atlantic Yacht & Ship, at their new Mamaroneck, NY location. Atlantic Yacht & Ship will be a Sunseeker dealer covering from Maine to the Carolina's for new builds, and will have a worldwide presence for pre-owned sales.
Being largely popular in Europe, Sunseekers have grown in popularity over the past decade in North America. The Sunseeker factory typically produces about 300 yachts per year by their 2.500 workers. Despite the current economic situation, Sunseeker has managed to avoid any factory lay-off's due to the steady stream of boats being turned out, almost to the point of a waiting list.
"We've noticed a big increase of younger buyers, who are attracted to the forward-thinking style of Sunseekers," said Ryan Wood, yacht broker at Atlantic Yacht & Ship.
Sunseeker, with yachts ranging in size from the 14 metre sport cruisers to the 46 metre semi-custom superyachts, offer dynamic styling, high-end detailing, and cutting-edge technology. In Sunseeker's four decade history, there has been a certain cult following by owners who keep coming back to the quality and performance of the european-styled yachts.
