Vessel Vanguard signs deal with Palm Beach Motor Yachts


Vessel Vanguard announced a partnership with Palm Beach Motor Yachts, the latest among 20 manufacturers that also include Beneteau, Grand Banks, Hunt, Hargrave, Maritimo and Prestige.

The partnership means each Palm Beach yacht will be provisioned with a Vessel Vanguard boat profile, including a digital master equipment list, a library of manuals and a customized maintenance calendar for the upkeep requirements of all onboard systems.

New Palm Beach buyers will be digitally equipped with information about the boat’s systems and will receive personalized communications to help them keep all systems running optimally.

“Once we learned about the tremendous service Vessel Vanguard provides, without hesitation we knew it was a fit for our discerning customers,” Palm Beach Motor Yachts founder and owner Mark Richards said in a statement.

“It’s a modern online service that simplifies the ownership experience by organizing our vessel’s system maintenance requirements in a simple, convenient and stress-free manner. It helps us manage and provide industry-leading support to keep our vessels in top working condition. And most important, it will enhance the experience of our valued customers and ensure they can more simply enjoy and take advantage of all their Palm Beach has to offer.”
