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.
