Galati Yacht Sales in Holland, Mich., announced the addition of two seasoned industry professionals to its Great Lakes sales team.

Rob McCarthy, former general manager of Lakeside Marine’s Detroit operation, brings to Galati several years of brokerage experience, as well as expertise in both Maritimo and Tiara Yacht sales. He will be working out of the Holland office, but will spend his time in the southeast Michigan and northern Ohio markets.

Erik Krueger, who has experience selling Viking, Princess, Sunseeker and Cruisers yachts at Jefferson Beach Yacht Sales, will be relocating to Galati’s Holland office and will concentrate his efforts on the Lake Michigan basin.

“We’re very proud to have these two professionals join us here at Galati and look forward to our continued growth here in the Great Lakes,” Galati Great Lakes sales manager Brian Dekkinga said in a statement.
