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 39-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. Upon completion, Palm Beach Motor Yachts founder Mark Richards was appointed CEO of the enlarged group of companies.

Along with the change in leadership, other changes were in store for 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 GB 44 SX, GB 60 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 will take the new buyers experience to a whole new level.

Steve Fithian will be one of the pioneers in the new sales force that will now sell new Grand Banks Yachts and Palm Beach Motor Yachts directly to the owner, with even closer involvement of Grand Banks Yachts. 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 new location for Steve Fithian, Grand Banks Specialist, is at Marina Bay Resort, in Fort Lauderdale. The new address is 2515 Marina Bay Drive West, Unit 101, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33312.  Steve’s contact information is: Phone (954) 383-1999, Email This email address is being protected from spambots.
