Annapolis Yacht Sales was ranked No. 4,389 on Inc.com's Inc. 5000 list.

The list highlights the nation's 5,000 fastest-growing, independent small and mid-sized businesses.

"We are extremely proud to have received the honor of being ranked on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private businesses in America," said Annapolis Yacht Sales CEO and principal Rob Taishoff in a statement. "This award recognizes the hard work and effort of each of our employees over the past year of transition and major growth."

AYS is a large yacht broker on the Chesapeake Bay, with offices in Annapolis, Kent Island, Deltaville and Virginia Beach. It represents Beneteau sailing yachts, Lagoon Catamarans, and powerboats from EdgeWater, Steiger Craft and Cruisers Yachts.

"I feel that a lot of the strategies we have employed over the past year are starting to pay off, and the entire company is becoming more and more unified,” said customer satisfaction director and principal Chris Humphries. “This award goes to show that."

According to the Inc. 5000 website, the companies on this year's list collectively amassed $206.2 billion in revenue, up 158 percent from $79.8 billion in 2014.

Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino's Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, and Zillow gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.

"The theory behind initiating change within a business is that you redesign the organization's structure, and it shakes a lot of things up," said company advisory board president Patrick Lee. "But with careful tracking and benchmarking of the results of those changes, the business will inevitably slingshot upwards into unprecedented growth. That's what we're seeing now with AYS."
