The sales process is a distinct and important phase in the overall refit process. Following yacht sale, most vessels move into a yard for refit — either big or small. Brokers often advise their customers on how to select the yard and what aspects of the boat are most critical to address in a refit. In this session, brokers will share ideas for how they’d like to work together with fellow industry professionals to erase the line in the sand that has long existed between the brokers and marine industry. Join this discussion to take a step toward developing a united front among your refit colleagues and brokers for the betterment of the industry.

Ken’s track record of sales for the past 15 years has been impressive, as he has focused on new building projects for his clients for much larger yachts at several of the world’s most prominent yards including Lurssen, Abeking & Rasmussen, Oceanco, Hakvoort and Westport.
