Welcome 2017 – A Fantastic New Year!

I am starting this new year with a full week at the Grand Banks factory to see firsthand all the new Grand Banks, Eastbay and Palm Beach models, with innovative features & benefits that will continue to far exceed all of your expectations! This is my 19th trip to the factory and it’s very exciting! There have been many updates to the factory itself, along with the many new models introduced last year, such as the new 2018 model Grand Banks 60 in full production now! The first two GB60 hulls have just been decked and the yachts will be launching this spring. I am very excited about this All New model and I know you will be too!

Don’t hesitate to contact me for all the details!

Special Announcement -

Steve Fithian joins Grand Banks Yachts as a GB Corporate Yacht Sales Executive

[FORT LAUDERDALE] Steve Fithian,  the “Grand Banks Specialist,” is now working directly for Grand Banks Yachts as a GB Corporate Yacht Sales Executive. He will continue to serve his long-term clientele and other knowledgeable yachtsmen with a depth of Grand Banks knowledge and experience acquired over a 40-year career in the marine industry.

Fithian’s move to a direct-sales capacity and yacht brokerage at Grand Banks came after other recent changes at Grand Banks Yachts. Notably, Grand Banks Yachts acquired Australian boat builder Palm Beach Motor Yacht Co. Pty Ltd. in 2014. Upon completion, Palm Beach Motor Yachts founder Mark Richards was appointed CEO of the enlarged group of companies. Mark has been doing a phenomenal job in taking Grand Banks Yachts into the future.

Along with the change in leadership, we have had other great changes at Grand Banks. There is the addition of the Palm Beach Motor Yachts fine line of yachts, as well as several new models of Grand Banks (including the EB44SX, GB60 and more to follow soon). Perhaps the biggest news is how Grand Banks Yachts has reconfigured the dealer network, and introduced a new direct-to-consumer sales approach. This has been taking the new buyers experience to a whole new level.

Steve Fithian is one of the pioneers in the new sales force that will now sells new Grand Banks, Eastbay and Palm Beach Motor Yachts directly to the owner. According to Fithian, “This is an exciting time for Grand Banks USA, and it’s great to see the company moving forward with all the new models and more.

Fithian is quick to note that the core values at Grand Banks Yachts remain unchanged, “Grand Banks has stood for premium quality and excellent craftsmanship for so long, it is ingrained in the brand. Our newest models will continue to set the standard for fit/finish and reliable seakeeping proficiency.”

The location for Steve Fithian, Grand Banks Specialist, is at Marina Bay Resort, in Fort Lauderdale.
