“Dealers like International Yacht Network don’t come along every day,” sales and marketing director Michael Carroll said in a statement. “Owner Jarrett Bryzek runs a smooth ship with hands-on sales and service that translates into a long list of happy, loyal customers.”

International Yacht Network started in Fort Lauderdale in 2006 and now operates from Green Bay, Wis. It specializes in fully rigged packages with Tohatsu engines and also offers custom chock and lifting harness packages.

“We chose Walker Bay because they are a reliable brand that complements the innovative products that we build in our factory with great design, functionality and superior technology,” International Yacht Network president Bryzek said.
