Grand Banks Yachts announced that Classic Yachts International is the company¹s new authorized dealer for the west coast of Florida.

Classic Yachts International will stock and sell Grand Banks from two new offices along the state’s Gulf Coast. The first, at the Cape Harbor Marina in Cape Coral, will open in August with a team that includes longtime GB salesman Brian Duffy.  The second office will open before the 2009 Miami International Boat show, in the Bradenton-Tampa-St. Petersburg area.

“Combining these two regions under the management of one highly-regarded dealership will serve Grand Banks Yachts and its customers extremely well,” said Neil McCurdy, vice president of Worldwide Sale & Service for Grand Banks Yachts.

Classic Yachts International is operated by George Potochney and Steve Fithian, who were named eastern coast dealers for GB last year.
