Hunt Yachts moves Chesapeake sales office

Following Scout Partners’ purchase of Hunt Yachts in September, Hunt will relocate its Chesapeake sales office to the Hinckley Yard in Oxford, Md.

The two companies have their headquarters next door to each other in Portsmouth, R.I.

When the purchase was announced earlier this year, the companies said they were looking to leverage marketing, service and sales opportunities for both the Hunt and Hinckley brands, which would remain autonomous.

“I initially got involved with Hunt as their first outside sales agent in Oxford in 2004,” Hunt Yachts Chesapeake sales director Todd Taylor said in a statement. “I’ve been the sales director for our direct sales operation in Annapolis for the past three years. I’m thrilled now to headquarter our sales efforts back here on the Eastern Shore at the Hinckley Yard in Oxford. The new formal association with Hinckley is a very natural one, and I’ve known and worked with many of the folks at Hinckley during my career.”
