Texas dealer expands with new sales office

Little Yacht Sales owner and principal Kent Little announced the grand reopening of its powerboat division, Texas Power Yachts, at a new marina in League City, Texas.

“The move to South Shore Harbour of our Power Boat Division is part of our continuing efforts to present our new and used inventory in the best environment for our sellers and is also the best for our buyers,” Little said in a statement. “South Shore is predominately powerboats, whereby Waterford Harbor, where our Little Yacht Sales office is, is predominately sail. We are taking the same hands-on extreme approach to marketing our power listings as we are sail.”

The company said the new Texas Power Yachts office is currently staffed by senior broker Dan Hughes and Norm Fisher; experienced local yacht broker David Hunt has been added.

The company also announced the addition of Earnest "Rusty" Hightower to the Little Yacht Sales office at pier 6/7 at Waterford Harbour. Hightower has more than 20 years of experience in yacht sales. He and his wife, Leilani, are Texas natives.

The new Texas Power Yachts office is at pier 13 at South Shore Harbour Marina on South Shore Marina Boulevard in League City.
