The company said it formed the division after acquiring Cambridge Yacht Group. That, according to a statement, gives it “significant experience and branding” in the yachting industry.

“Apollo Jets has been in business for over 10 years facilitating travel for the highest class of clientele from the sports, entertainment and corporate worlds with best in class brokerage service,” said the statement. “This unequaled experience, reputation and reliability will be brought to the yacht industry.”
