Hudson Yacht Group recently announced the establishment of a new Florida-based Sales and Service Center. HYG's Sales and Service Center will occupy a 1000 sqft office space with a wide berth on the waterfront at the Jupiter Marine Yacht Club, and will serve as the company's US headquarters. Sales and Service Director Dan Sammis will spearhead the Jupiter operation, while HYG President Paul Hakes will split time between the US Sales and Service Center and the Hudson Yacht production Facility in Xiamen.
"This is a huge move for our company." Paul said reflecting on the announcement, "We've been building boats for the US/Caribbean market now for nearly eight years. It's always been a part of our overall plan, and we've finally arrived at the point where we feel it's necessary to have a US base to better serve our clients. Jupiter is a beautiful area, and the facilities there are second-to-none. The yacht services in the area are expanding rapidly. We're thrilled to be able to offer new and existing clients a convenient sales and service stopover on the East coast."
The Jupiter Sales and Service Center will be the warranty and service hub for Hudson Yacht Group's six brands. Collectively, HYG has produced nearly 60 privately owned yachts over the previous eight years. Included in that number are ten high performance luxury cruising cats whose main migratory path takes them past Florida each year as they travel from New England to the Caribbean. In conjunction with partner yards in South Florida, the Jupiter Service Center will be well suited to handle any warranty and/or service issues that arise.
HH Catamarans Commissioning Captain Chris Bailet put it plainly, "It's always good to have a trusted service center nearby. These boats are always on the move, covering thousands of miles each year. Knowing that HYG has a base on the Eastern seaboard is very comforting. Being able to drop in for service or refit work will be key for our catamaran owners and crew."
From a sales perspective, Hudson Yacht Group's Florida office will be hugely beneficial. This year HYG exhibited in four boat shows up and down the east coast, with plans to attend additional shows in the works. Dan Sammis and his team will be paramount in serving HYG's clients and growing network of industry partners.
Hudson Yacht Group's new Sales and Service Center is located at 400 South Highway 1, Suite 3, Jupiter, Florida.
