Seaton Yachts, of Newport, R.I., announced the recent hiring of Annie Lannigan as a sales representative of new builds and brokerage sales.

A longtime sailor, Lannigan began her sailing in a Dyer dinghy. Club racing through college later gave way to offshore sailing, delivery work and racing on superyachts.

After receiving an M.B.A., Lannigan worked with builders at Quickstep Sailboats, Dyer Boats and C. Raymond Hunt Associates as sales/marketing manager and as a consultant for numerous other designers and builders.

“Annie is a welcome addition to our team. A Florida-licensed yacht broker, she builds on our commitment to assist our clients with professionalism and in-depth knowledge of high-quality brokerage yachts and new construction,” Seaton Yachts president John Clayman said in a statement. “Here at Seaton Yachts we are focused on helping our clients find the best possible yacht for their needs and budget and to offer continuous support to enable them to enjoy their yachts.”
