HMY Yachts is opening a new office in North Key Largo, Fla.

Located in the private resort community of Ocean Reef, the office will represent the company’s new brands — Viking Yachts, Princess Yachts, Horizon Yachts and Arcadia Yachts — and will offer available brokerage yachts and services.

HMY, which is based in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., has 10 locations and 45 professional yacht brokers on its staff. It has signed Capt. Glenn Clyatt as the yacht sales professional of the new North Key Largo location.

Clyatt has been a licensed 100-ton master captain for 25 years and is best known for running the charter boats Mr. Nice and Mr. Nice II out of the Ocean Reef Fishing Village. He was previously with MacGregor Yachts out of Ocean Reef and has experience with the local yacht and sportfishing market.

“We are delighted to be expanding our sales and brokerage business to Ocean Reef,” HMY Yachts president and owner Steve Moynihan said in a statement. “We have always represented our brokerage customers in the area, but now we have a central sales office to grow our business from North Key Largo to Key West. Glenn brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and relationships to our business and we are excited to have him on board.”
