Annapolis Yacht Sales Announces New Partnership!

Navigare Yachting and Annapolis Yacht Sales announce partnership.

Jesper Rönngard, CEO of Navigare Yachting, announces that Annapolis Yacht Sales has joined its growing network of partner dealers. The partnership means that more sailing enthusiasts from the greater Chesapeake Bay area will benefit from charter placement opportunities in the Caribbean and Bahamas, as well as the Mediterranean, and Thailand.

For over 65 years, Annapolis Yacht Sales has become the trusted yacht dealer on the Chesapeake Bay. With more than 50 crew members and 4 locations in the Mid-Atlantic region, the dealership has grown into a full-service facility with brokerage services for new and used power and sail boats, plus exclusive distribution of Beneteau sailing yachts and Lagoon Catamarans among many other prestigious and well-established shipyards.

“We’ve found in Annapolis Yacht Sales (AYS) a perfect match for what Navigare stands for”, Jesper Rönngard commented. “A team committed to excellence in customer satisfaction and dedicated to their community. Add their excellent track record as a Lagoon dealer since 2014… we’re bound to succeed together!”

This announcement comes in the wake of recent partnership news with Marine ServiCenter in Seattle, and Fraser Yacht Sales in Vancouver – both of whom are also distributors for Lagoon catamarans.

“Building an alliance with AYS, one of the largest and most successful Lagoon dealers in the world, is going to boost our growth in the Caribbean and Bahamas where the demand for charter is greater than ever”, added Rönngard. “We’ve already seen tremendous success in yacht sales in the past year; as we continue to establish more partnerships with reputable dealers, more clients will evaluate the opportunity to buy their next yacht into our charter program.”

Annapolis Yacht Sales CEO, Rob Taishoff, also commented on the partnership: “I’m extremely proud of what our team has accomplished over the years, helping our clients evaluate the benefits of investing in charter yachts. The added benefits of the Navigare offer – with complete transparency in yacht care and guaranteed annual returns of up to 10% for 7 years – will be a game changer.”

Denise Hanna, CPYB and Lagoon Brand Specialist at AYS also expressed her enthusiasm on the collaboration with Navigare Yachting: “The Holiday Program offered by Navigare along with the flexible ownership programs will be very attractive to our customers. I would expect Annapolis Yacht Sales will place 5 to 10 catamarans in charter with Navigare for our clients by the end of next year.” Hanna is a veteran of the yacht sales industry, recognized by the Lagoon shipyard with numerous awards because of her dedication to the catamaran brand.
