Their values and mission align with our own, and we look forward to supporting them as they take on this new endeavor."

Prince William Marine is located in Woodbridge, Virginia. "We strive to create family and fun, as well as the boating lifestyle with every customer purchase,” said Carlton Phillips, owner of Prince William Marine, in the statement. “Galeon Yachts seem to align with that same lifestyle. At Prince William Marine, we have looked at many different yacht brands and feel Galeon Yachts will allow us to deliver the same family fun lifestyle experience to our customers."
