Palm Beach Yachting combines operations

Palm Beach Yachting, Inc. - owners of Palm Beach Yacht Sales, Palm Beach Yacht Charters and Palm Beach Yacht Services - combined all four companies, and will be branded and trademarked under Palm Beach Yachting.

The company is run by B.G. Sykes, an attorney who specializes in marine and aviation law and has been licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard since 1979. He is a graduate of Dartmouth College and holds J.D. and MBA degrees from Boston College Law School and Boston College Graduate School of Management

"The companies are being combined so that we will have a uniform, superb quality communication with our customers," Sykes said in an e-mail to Soundings Trade Only.

"It will no longer be necessary for customers to differentiate between Palm Beach Yacht Charters, which may manage or book their yacht, and Palm Beach Yacht Services, which provides repair and upgrade work, or Palm Beach Yacht Sales which helps them buy or sell their yacht," he said.

The company is actively seeking brokers and certified service technicians for its growing business. For details, contact Sykes at (561) 842-0800, Ext. 102 or e-mail bg@pbyacht.com
