Ashley Marine of Nashville, Tenn., has added new products to its roster and brought in new talent for the firm’s sales force.
To further the product offering from pre-owned sail and power, Ashley Marine will introduce a line of specialty yacht and marine insurance, and vessel financing.
The yacht brokerage firm also brought aboard Capt. Richard M. Mahoney Jr., former director of marina operations at Nashville Shores. He holds standards accreditation from the American Boat and Yacht Council, as well as an offshore Master Captain’s license from the U.S. Coast Guard.
“Pooling all of our resources now will put us ahead as the economy continues back in a positive direction” Mahoney said in a statement. “We will be launching our new ‘feeder Web sites’ NashvilleSailing.com and NashvilleYachting.com, to further the boating enthusiasts’ knowledge of what great recreational boating opportunities are available in the Nashville and tri-state area and beyond.”
Ashley Marine (formerly The Yacht Channel) was founded in 1998 by Jim Dempsey after the closing of the Nashville Sailing Center on J Percy Priest Lake.
