United Yacht Sales announced it sold 113 boats and yachts sold in the first quarter of 2018, including a 92-foot Sea Force IX and a 2016 77-foot Azimut.

The company has more than 130 brokers in 16 states and several countries and makes more than 500 transactions a year.

“We had a really great quarter in brokerage sales,” said United Yacht Sales president Peter Schmidt in a statement. “It’s an exciting time at United right now. Our boat shows around the country like the Miami Yacht Show, Palm Beach Show, The Wharf Boat Show in Alabama, and the New England Boat Show were all productive for us both in sales and getting new listings.”

“When you combine all of this good activity with the new tax legislation that passed that gives our customers huge tax advantages for purchasing a new or pre-owned boat, we should expect to see a great second quarter as well,” Schmidt said.
