Popov is a Coast Guard-licensed captain with extensive experience sailing the East Coast and the Caribbean. Wats said that experience, combined with a deep understanding of the yachting business, made Popov the company’s obvious choice.

Since its launch in 2004, G-Force Yachts has earned a reputation for producing and developing high-performance sailing yachts. G-Force Yachts’ current range includes the Rebel dinghy, the X-Treme 25 and the X-Treme 37.
