Custom wooden-boat builder and designer Rockport Marine said it acquired the David Jones Yacht Brokerage.
The acquisition expands the Rockport, Maine, company’s offerings beyond the design, construction and refit of wooden yachts to the sales of new and used boats to and for Rockport Marine customers.
The brokerage has facilitated the sales of classic wooden yachts for 16 years, representing boats by designers that include Alden, Crocker, Fife, Herreshoff, Hinckley, Rhodes, and Stephens Waring.
David Jones, former owner of the brokerage, will continue to work with Rockport Marine for at least a year during the ownership transition; Jones will work closely with broker Evelyn Smith, who will manage the brokerage.
"Joining forces with David Jones is a natural fit. For a long time we've really appreciated the way he does business," Rockport Marine project manager Sam Temple said in a statement.
