Regency P6508, which has been under construction in Taiwan, is almost complete! Like the Regency P65 yachts that have come before it, this luxury yacht is crafted with distinction for outstanding beauty, exquisite comfort, and the finest technical performance at sea. This new Regency yacht shipped the week of January 1st, just in time for the Seattle Boat Show. If you are in the Seattle area, we hope you will join us at the Boat Show to see firsthand the care and attention to detail that have gone into this exceptional vessel.
Please help us welcome Shelly Flath to the Premiere Yachts Team! Shelly may be the newest member of our Premiere family, but she’s no stranger to the Seattle boating scene. She’s been around the Lake assisting her clients find their dream boat. She also brings with her a wealth of business knowledge, a wonderful personality and love for the beautiful Pacific Northwest, its waters and boating.
Congratulations and job well done to Marvin Nielson for helping one of his long-time clients acquire a beautiful 2013 Chris Craft Launch 32. Marvin located the Chris Craft in Florida and handled all aspects of the transaction, including negotiating the purchase price, working out the logistics of prepping the boat for transporting across the US, taking delivery, and recommissioning the boat in Seattle. Marvin was hands-on and delivered the Chris Craft to his client’s home on Lake Washington.
In other yacht brokerage news, Martin Snyder recently listed a 2005 54′ West Bay SonShip for $695,000. “Fortunate Son” has been beautifully and thoughtfully maintained by caring owners. This sought-after model is an exceptional find and shows almost new. Stop by the Premiere Yachts display to tour this West Bay at the Seattle Boat Show!
As we launch our new blog, Premiere Yachts would like to sincerely thank all of the clients and friends who make our business of yacht import, sales, and brokerage truly fun and enjoyable. 2017 has been a busy year so far, with more still to come! We were happy to hear from our clients Harvey and Suzanne Prince about their second season of cruising the Pacific Northwest in their new Regency P63, delivered in June 2016. This year also saw the delivery of two Regency P65 yachts, including one to Tom and Martha Walker this June and the second to Don and Lori Armstrong. While out enjoying a San Juan cruise, the Armstrongs saw the P65 and knew in the “blink” of an eye that the Regency was the yacht for them. Upon delivery, they christened their new P65 “BLINK” and were kind enough to show it off with us at the Lake Union Boats Afloat Show in September. Our newest Regency Yacht, Regency P6508, is currently under construction in Taiwan, and we look forward to sharing more about it in the weeks to come.
We would also like to congratulate our Sales Manager and Yacht Consultant Marvin Nielson for helping two of his clients realize their dreams of yacht ownership. In October, Marvin’s client Logan Shepardson took delivery of “Harri Sea,” a 1986 Chris-Craft 422 and moved it over to its new home at the Seattle Yacht Club. In August, client Tom Jones and his family closed on a 2001 31’ Tiara with Marvin’s help, and headed through the locks to Lopez Island as the start of their summer cruising season. With more than 30 years of experience in the marine industry, Marvin is a wealth of knowledge and a valuable asset to anyone seeking guidance on the purchase of a boat. We are so happy and grateful to have him on our yacht sales team.
In addition to the new Regency P65 in the works, Premier Yachts is also preparing to add new members to the Regency family: the Regency P52 and P58. Martin has been traveling to China and Taiwan to interview three high-quality prospective yacht builders, all of whom have the pedigree to take on these latest additions to the Regency P series. If all goes according to plan, we expect these new yachts to make their debut in 2019.
