Florida-based sales and charter firm 26 North Yachts has added a second location with the opening of a waterfront base in Newport, R.I.
With its headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., 26 North Yachts now can serve a wider East Coast footprint, the company said in a statement. Sales associate Bill Powers will lead the Newport office.
"This is a unique opportunity to own one of the most sought-after sales offices for our industry in the yachting capital of the Northeast,” said company co-founder Mike Carlson. "We’ve exceeded $1 billion in sales and are positioned for national growth, and Bill Powers is the perfect person to lead this new location.”
26 North Yachts' Newport office is at One Commercial Wharf.
