“Skipper Bud’s’ dedication to providing the highest-quality yachts and spectacular service perfectly align with the expectations of Vantage members,” Vantage Yacht Club president Jason De Palma said in a statement. “I purchased my first boat from Skipper Bud’s, and the experience was fantastic. For over 40 years they have received the highest levels of achievement from marine industry manufacturers and have consistently been recognized as one of the country’s most respected dealers.”
