Spencer Ship Monaco announced the opening of its new sales office in the United States in Millville, N.J.
Spencer’s new office will be led by 30-year marine industry veteran Doug Finney.
“Doug’s experience in both domestic and international sales development, along with his background in retail dealership management, presented Spencer Ship with opportunities on multiple fronts. His reputation and resume speak for themselves,” international sales manager Craig Spencer Harvey said in a statement.
Finney’s previous wholesale management experience began in 1982 at Trojan Yacht and was followed by sales management positions at Silverton Marine, Egg Harbor Yachts and as vice president of sales and marketing at Ocean Yachts for the past 15 years.
Finney also managed at the retail dealership level for Jefferson Beach Marina in St. Clair Shores, Mich.
“While the majority of the marine industry is pulling back due to the global economic situation, Spencer Ship Monaco’s expansion to the U.S. is providing immediate communication, travel and logistical support for the domestic manufacturers they currently represent,” the company said in a statement. “The company’s new location will also be utilized to launch the U.S. distribution for a select number of international boat manufacturers, giving it closer proximity to Pacific Rim and South American markets. Additionally, Spencer Ship will also move more aggressively into the market for the sale of brokerage and pre-owned vessels.”
Based in Monaco, Spencer Ship created an international distribution network for Sabre, Back Cove, Doral, Chris-Craft, EdgeWater and other brands. Spencer Ship is the international factory sales office for Sea Fox, Mariah Boats, Azure Boats, Donzi Marine, Ocean Yachts, Pro-Line Boats and Everglades Boats, the company said.
