HMY Yacht Sales signs deal on superyacht sales

HMY Yacht Sales said it is partnering with Ward Setzer of Setzer Yacht Architects.

HMY Yacht Sales said it is partnering with Ward Setzer of Setzer Yacht Architects, a yacht design and naval architecture firm, for what the companies said is a client-oriented platform within the U.S. superyacht industry.

In addition to new superyacht offerings over 100 feet, the HMY Superyacht Division is introducing several new construction opportunities, including the Vestal line of motoryachts by Admiral Marine at 144 and 164 feet, the Trident Series by Outer Reef at 98 and 105 feet and a unique Trinity Yachts 167-foot project.

HMY Superyachts and Setzer will have a new display on Collins Avenue at the Feb.16-20 Yachts Miami Beach show.

HMY has offices at such marinas as Miami Beach Marina, Palm Harbor Marina and Charleston City Marina’s Mega-Dock.

Setzer has decades of experience in the design and construction of superyachts.

“HMY Yacht Sales has been very successful for years at selling large motoryachts,” HMY Yacht Sales owner and president Steve Moynihan said in a statement. “The company achieved great success in 2016 with multiple vessels listed and sold in the 100-foot-plus category. Our clients look to us as the experts in positioning, pricing and selling their superyacht. The addition of Ward Setzer and the expanded marketing approach by our team will increase our success in listing and selling more 100- to 200-foot superyachts.”

“Setzer Yacht Architects has been blessed with a successful run of 25 years during which hundreds of our designs have gone from sketch to active seagoing enterprises,” Setzer said.

“It became obvious that in addition to helping owners of our past designs, that we also had developed a deep understanding of all the processes involved in unique yacht ownership and that it was time to put this knowledge and energy to good use. There were a great many respected superyacht brokerage firms that wanted to collaborate with us, however; it was HMY Superyachts and Steve Moynihan who understood what I was trying to accomplish and saw the values that each of our respected brands could bring to the industry. Together we are creating a platform that will grow and support superyacht owners, providing value through real knowledge gained from sketch to sea.”
