Mag Bay Yachts recently signed an exclusive dealership agreement with Yachting Experts to sell its 33-foot center console in South Florida and Puerto Rico.

“We share a passion for the quality being incorporated into Mag Bay,” Frank De Varona, of Yachting Experts, said in a statement. “This boat is exactly what many of our customers are looking for and is an answer to what the current market offerings lack.”

Yachting Experts has sales offices in Coconut Grove and Fort Lauderdale, and is opening a location at the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo.

Based in Adelanto, Calif., Mag Bay Yachts was founded in 2014 by one of the founders of Cabo Yachts, Michael Howarth.

“We are thrilled to partner with Yachting Experts for this principle region,” said Howarth. “There’s a lot of competition amongst respectable builders in Florida, and we hope to bring them a challenge with our own definition of what makes a well-built boat.”
