George C. Robinson III acquired South Jersey Yacht Sales of Cape May and Point Pleasant, N.J.

South Jersey Yacht Sales is a dealer for Viking Yachts, Jupiter Marine, Albemarle Boats and Yellowfin Yachts. Owned by Dick Weber since 1984, it has served anglers and boaters for more than 33 years on the New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania and Maryland waterfronts.

Sportfishing boats sold under Weber’s ownership now span the eastern United States, the Bahamas and far-reaching fishing destinations.

Robinson said he plans to keep the current management. The business will continue to be known as South Jersey Yacht Sales.

Robinson also said investments in key business functions will provide recreational as well as serious tournament boaters a differentiated and exceptional yacht or boat purchase experience.

Weber said Robinson’s commitment to current South Jersey employees, locations and traditions played a large part in his decision to sell.

Robinson, who owns a 2013 55-foot Viking and has more than 40 years of experience fishing and boating in New Jersey, said that acquiring South Jersey Yacht Sales is a valuable opportunity not only because it has high-quality boat and yacht brands, but also because it has a growing customer base.

“The love that my family and I have of sportfishing and traveling from Nantucket to the Exumas and points in between by boat has led us here today,” Robinson said in a statement.

“I believe that with a combination of my family’s boating and fishing experiences and the experienced business team at your disposal at South Jersey Yacht Sales, the purchase of your next boat will a most positive and memorable experience. The South Jersey Yacht Sales team look forward to being of service.”
