Vanquish Boats announced the addition of Boston Yacht Sales to its network of dealers. Since 1953, BYS has represented sportfish and cruising lines from 24 to 100 feet and it features select used and brokerage yachts.

It has two locations offering service and marina facilities: the 200-slip Tern Harbor Marina 12 miles south of Boston and MacDougalls' Cape Cod Marine in Falmouth, which serves as a gateway for Cape Cod and the islands. It also has authorized service affiliates throughout the region, including Manchester Marine, Brewer Yacht Yards, Kingman Marine and Burr Bros.

Leading the family-owned business is Michael Myers, a certified professional yacht broker and a past president and past board member of the Yacht Brokers Association of America. Its professional sales team actively participates in the YBAA, The Cape Cod Marine Trades Association, the International Yacht Council and the Florida Yacht Brokers Association.

“At Vanquish it is our mission to build boats to the highest standards of quality and performance,” company president Morgan Huntley said in a statement. “We look for the same dedication to sales and service in our dealer partners. Adding a successful dealer like Boston Yacht Sales to our network guarantees that our customers continue to have the best possible sales and service experience.”
