Galati Yacht Sales staff conduct factory visits

Galati Yacht Sales spent the month of August doing continuing education with factory visits to Maritimo Yachts, Princess and soon Viking Yachts.

Separately, the Florida team attended the International Yacht Brokers Association West Coast sales summit.

Five Galati sales professionals visited Australia to tour the Maritimo Yachts factory and learn about the new models that are being introduced in the coming year. While there, the team attended the Sydney Boat Show for the premiere of the new Maritimo S70.

Last week, 10 Galati representatives were in England at the Princess dealer conference and factory tour. This month, more than 30 Galati sales professionals will visit the new Viking Mullica plant to learn about the 37- to 52-foot models that are being manufactured at the New Jersey location.

“Our customers benefit from our team’s investment in product education,” Galati Yacht Sales vice president Darren Plymale said in a statement. “This education helps our new-boat buyers by offering them the latest knowledge available to them direct from the factory. As those clients evolve and go to sell their boat, our sales professionals can best represent them to potential clients because they know these boats from top to bottom.”

In addition to product training, Galati was represented at the recent International Yacht Brokerage Association meeting in Sarasota, Fla., with representatives from sales, marketing and the business office in attendance.

The summit gave the team valuable insight into issues regarding cruising licenses, EPA certificates, cybersecurity for yachts, class surveys, foreign trade zones, canceled contracts and panel discussions on trends in new construction and the state of the industry that included Plymale and Carmine Galati Jr.
