LARGO, Fla. – Island Packet Yachts has named Sailor’s World of Wayzata, Minn. as its newest dealer. The business, founded and owned by Gary and Cheryl DeSantis in 1977, is located on Lake Minnetonka, just west of Minneapolis/St. Paul, with operations in Marinette, Wis. on Lake Michigan and in Superior, Minn. on Lake Superior, IPY said in a press release Wednesday.
The first Island Packet, a new 370, will arrive in Wayzata towards the end of June and be featured in an Open House and Launch scheduled for later in the summer, according to the boat builder.
“We’re pleased to be able to offer our customers the ultimate cruising yacht, whether their dreams take them across the Great Lakes, or across the oceans of the world,” said Gary DeSantis.
“Having known and worked with Gary for almost 15 years, I can’t be more delighted to have him and Cheryl aboard as a dealer, representing both our sail and powerboat products in the Great Lakes,” added Bill Bolin, vice president of Sales and Marketing for Island Packet.
