MIAMI — Merrill-Stevens Yachts opened a new office in Mexico City this month, which will be headed by Jose Araña, Sr. and his son Jose Araña, Jr., who have more than 15 years of experience in the yacht brokerage business and in-depth knowledge of the Latin American yachting market, the company reported in a release yesterday.
“Mexico City is a center for Latin American wealth, it reflects our interest in reaching one of the international markets we have targeted for development,” said Whit Kirtland, president of Merrill-Stevens Yachts. “This area’s concentration of wealth coupled with our current clients’ connection to Latin America and the interest in yachting in both the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean to the east makes Mexico City a strategic location allowing Merrill-Stevens to serve this part of the world.”
The new office, located in the heart of Mexico City’s business center, will provide and coordinate the full range of Merrill-Stevens’ services.
In addition to its Miami River shipyard, Merrill-Stevens currently has offices in Fort Lauderdale, Mallorca, San Diego and Singapore.
