Hunt Yachts is opening a sales office in Annapolis, Md., to support the growing number of Hunt owners in the region.
"Although we've been transitioning to an agent network with recent appointments in several key markets we felt that a company-direct communication was more appropriate in the Chesapeake," Hunt Yachts president Peter Van Lancker said in a statement.
"Our many owners here have always had a personal relationship with us at the factory and we chose not to disrupt that 'family' feeling," he added.
Heading the new Annapolis office are Todd Taylor and Bob Price.
Taylor brings nearly 20 years of experience in yacht sales and brokerage, including responsibility for many of Hunt's sales in the Mid-Atlantic states. He is a longstanding member of the Yacht Brokerage Association of America and has served two terms on its board.
Price, an experienced Hunt owner, is a practicing lawyer and lifelong resident of Maryland's Eastern Shore. He has been an informal member of the Hunt team on the boat show circuit for the last several years and is past commodore of the Tred Avon and Corsica River yacht clubs, as well as rear commodore of the Cruising Club of America, Chesapeake Station.
Hunt offers models from 25 to 68 feet in the Surfhunter, Harrier, Coupe, Inflatable and Express Cruiser lines, all from designs by C. Raymond Hunt Associates.
