West Florida Yachts, of St. Petersburg, Fla., absorbed the St. Petersburg sales staff of South Florida Yacht Sales Nov. 1 and, together, have joined forces with United Yacht Sales to create United West Florida Yachts.

They will operate out of the existing offices at Maximo Marina in St. Petersburg. The staff will consist of industry veterans Roger Cole, Skip North, Tom Poe, Steve Pentz, Mike Reeves and Ed Morris.

“It is believed that this new entity will take advantage of the benefits of economy of scale, while maintaining the independent nature of yacht brokerage that has proven to be successful,” said Cole.
