The Florida-based company said the enhanced service provides yachting company members and yachting professional members with customizable website templates that are fully responsive and designed to engage the consumer with ease of navigation and a modern look.

Our success at outpacing technological evolution is a direct benefit to our members, enabling their content to enjoy maximum visibility and searchability.”

“In response to the growing demand for Yatco’s unparalleled technology services, we are excited to expand our operations by creating a more formal presence in Europe, with reach also extending to the Middle East,” Myers said.
