Annapolis Yacht Sales to Debut Exclusive Client Amenities
Leading yacht and brokerage dealer prepares for VIP boat show experiences, new website and premium listings program
ANNAPOLIS, MARYLAND (September 18, 2018) — Mid-Atlantic yacht and brokerage authority Annapolis Yacht Sales (AYS) will reveal this fall three key elements to deliver a superior client experience: VIP accommodations at the Annapolis Boat Show series, a newly designed website and a premium listings program for luxury boat sellers.
In partnership with marine financing specialist LH-Finance, AYS invites their clients to enjoy a private VIP area complete with complimentary light fare and libations. By partnering with LH-Finance, AYS has the opportunity to have their clients get pre-qualified for marine financing, which allows them access to a luxurious experience at the boat show.
“In addition to our VIP experiences at the shows, we’ll be hosting a preview open house at our Annapolis office on September 22nd ahead of the sailboat show,” said Rob Taishoff, AYS CEO and Principal. “We’re offering our clients a sneak peek of our Beneteau and Lagoon models before the boat show crowds descend. We’ll also be giving away boat show tickets.”
To further enhance client service, AYS will soon debut a new website designed to ensure a simple web experience for new and veteran boaters alike. The site has been built with advanced search functionality and the listings have been streamlined for easier sharing and broker connection. Additionally, AYS has created a more robust service section and news page, highlighting prominent community events, blogs and social media features.
AYS will also soon launch its Premium Listings Program. The package includes a professional video and 3D virtual tour, prominent ad and website placement, e-mail blast, custom flyer and more. “Providing hands-on, personal service is what we’re about,” said Chris Humphreys, AYS Director of Customer Satisfaction and Principal. “We’re excited to offer this new, custom program to our clients with premium listings. After 65 years, we have a deep understanding of how to reach a specific buyer; this package delivers a targeted strategy to put our clients’ best foot forward.”
The VIP boat show experience, new website and premium listings program are the latest in a string of milestones for AYS, which celebrates its 65th anniversary this year. The company was recently named to the Inc.com 5,000 list of fastest growing private businesses and also announced increased mid-year earnings after successfully restructuring its management. “So far, 2018 has been a momentous year for us and we’re not looking to slow down any time soon,” Taishoff added. “It’s important to demonstrate how much we appreciate our clients, and I’m looking forward to providing them with an upgraded experience.”
