The Northwest-based Seattle Yachts boat dealer and yacht brokerage firm has been appointed as a dealer for Hampton Yachts along the entire East Coast of the United States. The deal will also include Hampton’s Endurance models, which are designed for long-range excursions. Seattle Yachts said that it will be representing the new Hampton Endurance 658 model at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show to be held in Florida, October 30, to November 3.
“Our niche has become the luxury cruising market,” said Peter Whiting, managing partner at Seattle Yachts. “We offer day-cruising boats like Nimbus, all the way up to our Alaskan and Northwest Yacht lines, that are equipped for long-range travel.”
Jeff Chen, managing director of Hampton Yachts, praised Seattle Yachts’ support team and marketing presence “alongside an impressive list of premium boat brands,” such as American Tugs, Legacy Yachts, and Regency Motor Yachts along the East Coast.
The Hampton Yacht Group of Florida said it will continue to operate out of its Fort Lauderdale, Florida, location to provide dealership support. Seattle Yachts operates offices in the Pacific Northwest, Southern California, and South Florida.
