G Marine adds Fort Lauderdale office

G Marine said it is expanding to Fort Lauderdale four years after establishing its first yacht brokerage office in Miami.

G Marine said it is expanding to Fort Lauderdale four years after establishing its first yacht brokerage office in Miami.

The new office is in The Quay on the 17th Street Causeway, near The Boatyard in what CEO Alberto Galante calls "the European yacht center in the Venice of America,” the city's moniker.

The company said the northern office gives the current seven G Marine brokers an opportunity to meet with clients who fly into the nearby Fort Lauderdale International Airport and sea-trial a boat from the adjacent transient docks.

"The growing popularity of the Spanish Astondoa and British Fairline brands, coupled with the excitement generated over the new Evo Yachts, has greatly increased our business," Galante said in a statement.

"In Fort Lauderdale we are surrounded by brokerage offices and other European boat brands of all sizes; there is an excellent synergy here that we believe will be advantageous to our growing business. We bring more, and healthy competition to the industry."

G Marine's Alberto and David Galante moved their homes and business to Miami as the Florida dealer for Fairline Yachts after establishing a yacht brokerage business in San Diego. They said their long-standing relationships with clients in Mexico and South and Central America necessitated expanding the brands they represented so existing customers could move up to custom-built, larger yachts.

"We are pleased with the gradual growth of our company," COO David Galante said. "And we look forward to continuing as our European lines and staff grows. We are in the right place at the right time with the right products, so we look forward to the new year and 2017 shows."
