In the five months since Florida-based Worth Avenue Yachts brokerage opened its Seattle office, it has acquired eight new listings, introduced a West Coast Charter department, and, most recently, added marine industry veteran Scott Hauck to its team.
With more than 20 years of experience in the industry, Hauck joined Worth Avenue in October and has extensive knowledge of the yacht brokering business, a knack for building client relationships, and a personal passion for deep-sea fishing in the Pacific Northwest, according to the company.
During this period, Worth Avenue has also sold three listings: a 54-foot Ocean Alexander, a 65-foot Pacific Mariner, and a 36-foot Tiara. The new West Coast Charter department, introduced in September during the Seattle Boats Afloat show, is led by charter yacht broker Lori Eastes, who joined the team in August.
“Looking around at the competitive landscape in Seattle, we are the only brokerage house to offer the services of a fully dedicated charter department,” said Ray Prokorym, managing partner of Worth Avenue Yachts Seattle.
