Berthon is delighted to announce that Scandinavian Yachts in Newport Rhode Island is Berthon’s new partner in the USA, enabling both parties to offer their high quality brokerage listings on both sides of the Atlantic.,
Managing Director of the Berthon Sales Division, Sue Grant said: “Alan Baines and Jennifer Stewart from Scandinavian Yachts are highly experienced brokers, whose skill and integrity make them the perfect partners for Berthon in a vast market that will rebound more rapidly than Europe. We are now able to offer yacht owners of our listings in Europe superb coverage in the United States, and American clients will have a local office in Newport, Rhode Island (arguably, yachting’s Mecca across the pond) with whom to deal, when purchasing yachts via Berthon in Europe.”
With offices in the UK, France, Scandinavia, Spain, Berthon specialises in the sale of quality sailing, motor and performance yachts from 40’ – 100’.
Alan Baines of Scandinavian Yachts commented “We are delighted with this new partnership with Berthon, one of Europe’s largest and stable brokerage houses, allowing Scandinavian Yachts to offer around 300 high quality cruising yachts available for sale to US buyers. With our knowledge of the American market, and years of experience in successfully selling into this market, we can now offer well priced brokerage listings in Europe, taking full advantage of the current currency advantage that the dollar has over both sterling and the euro. Additionally, between both companies we can advise about all aspects of purchase, including VAT (sales tax) and even European cruising grounds.”
Scandinavian Yachts will offer Berthon listings as “Scandinavian Yachts – agents for Berthon”.
