HCB names Staten Island Yacht Sales annex partner

HCB Center Console Yachts has signed Staten Island Yacht Sales in the manufacturer’s annex partner program.

“We couldn’t be happier about partnering with a first-class organization like Staten Island Yacht Sales,” said HCB CEO Elias De La Torre III in a statement. “Our factory-partnered model and focus on the customer has been a central component of our business from the start. Annexes like Staten Island Yacht Sales help us make the purchase and service process as seamless and top shelf as possible, while raising the positive awareness of our brand.”

HCB says the annex program goes with its Crucero Experience, a custom buying process that takes the buyer through his boat’s construction, delivery and ownership. The company offers boats ranging from 39 to 53 feet with a new 65-foot model planned for this fall.

“Staten Island Yacht shares HCB’s business philosophy when it comes to serving the discerning, affluent yacht buyer,” said Frank Bongiorno, owner of Staten Island Yacht Sales. “We’ve been committed since 1964 to delivering a level of service and care that’s rare in our industry. It is refreshing when we find a partner who understands the right way to do business at this level. HCB owners will appreciate our attention to detail to our world-class, full service marina.”
