“It’s been an incredibly strong year for us on multiple fronts...this success wouldn’t be possible without our team’s dedication to creating lasting relationships with our customers, as well as our ongoing efforts to bring them new options to enjoy," said Chris Humphreys, AYS Principal.

Mid-Atlantic yacht and brokerage authority Annapolis Yacht Sales (AYS) is the mid-year leader in Maryland for sail boat brokerage sales. According to Boats.com data, AYS has eclipsed the nearest competitor by more than double the sales volume. The company also announced a trio of recent achievements, including new partnerships and a sales award, that has AYS leadership looking toward a potential new era of growth.

On the heels of AYS’s 65th anniversary and recent inclusion on the Inc. 5000’s list of fastest growing businesses, these achievements suggest that AYS is not one to rest on its laurels. “It’s been an incredibly strong year for us on multiple fronts; not only have we dominated brokerage sailboat sales in Maryland, but we were awarded the Lagoon Americas 2019 Best Distributor Award for selling the most units in both North and South America,” said Chris Humphreys, AYS Principal and Director of Customer Satisfaction. “This success wouldn’t be possible without our team’s dedication to creating lasting relationships with our customers, as well as our ongoing efforts to bring them new options to enjoy.”

One of the most recent of these offerings includes charter placement opportunities in regions including the Caribbean and Bahamas, Mediterranean and Thailand through a new partnership with Navigare Yachting. “I’m particularly proud of this new program to help our clients evaluate the benefits of investing in charter yachts,” said AYS CEO Rob Taishoff. “The added benefits of the Navigare offer, including complete transparency in yacht care, will be a game-changer.”

Rounding out AYS’s new options is the addition of a new power boat line, Four Winns by GroupeBeneteau America. With diverse pricing options and an award-winning running surface that’s perfect for the Chesapeake, power boaters can now shop the family-friendly line’s Bow Riders, Deck Boats, Surf Series, and Cruisers, with every make and model available for custom order at AYS Maryland locations.

“We’re so proud of the team and its accomplishments; without our great people, the brokerage record, Lagoon award and new partnerships wouldn’t be possible. We’re poised for a new chapter of growth, and I’m excited to watch it unfold,” Humphreys added.
