Petosa has spent his professional career as an executive in the marine industry; he has been solely focused on the superyacht segment for the last several years. Most recently, he developed Professional Captain’s Services — the megayacht division of West Marine. He previously worked as chief operating officer of Northrop and Johnson Yachts-Ships.

“Welcoming Charlie to the Ocean Marine Yacht Center family as vice president of our sales and marketing divisions is a critical tactical step in our branding strategy,” president and CEO Jim Bento said in a statement. “Charlie shares our life passion for the unique business we are in and has the vision and experience necessary to lead our team forward in positioning our extraordinary capabilities and increasing the visibility of our brand.”

Ocean Marine Yacht Center, based in Portsmouth, Va., is a superyacht refit and repair facility.
