CABO Yachts Announces New Dealer for Puerto Rico
Antilles Yachts Assumes Representation of the CABO Brand
NEW BERN, NC -- (Marketwire) -- 09/18/12 -- CABO Yachts is pleased to announce that Antilles Yachts Brokerage & Sales LLC., acknowledged by its enduring association with Hatteras Yachts, will now also represent the CABO brand. Recognized for having the most experienced sales team and brand specialists in Puerto Rico, the Antilles team will serve as an immediate asset by utilizing its expertise as a dealer of top brands in the market.
"Since 1985, our family has been a customer of Hatteras. We purchased the products that we considered were the best for our adventures. Now, we represent Hatteras and CABO because we know that they are not only the best brands for our family, but also the best for anyone," said Ralph "Agie" Vicente, founder of Antilles Yachts.
The concept first instilled by Agie, "selling boats to friends," has remained a tradition of the family business. To ensure that the customer and their family are in the hands of people they can trust, the Antilles team offers services to all customers at the same caliber that would be issued to their closest friends and family.
Antilles Yachts' representation of CABO in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic will foster numerous opportunities for the brand. "We are very excited to have our friends at Antilles Yachts carry the CABO banner. Not only are they great people to work with, but their territories expand our access in the Caribbean, including the British Virgin Islands," said John Ward, Hatteras and CABO Yachts' senior vice president of global sales and marketing. "As the economy continues its recovery, the opportunity for growth could become immense."
