Navigare Yachting manages the operation and related sales of yachts for charter of 250 sailing yachts in nine countries worldwide including the Caribbean, Sweden, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Spain, Thailand, Turkey, and Maldives.
The partnership places MarineMax Vacations at the helm of North American sales and marketing as well as fleet management and operation for Navigare’s British Virgin Islands fleet for charter vacations and charter yacht ownership. The fleet, comprised of more than 21 sailing catamarans, will be relocated, managed and operated by the MarineMax Vacations Base in Tortola.
"We are very excited to partner with Navigare to further expand our product offering to include sail catamarans from our Tortola Charter Base in the British Virgin Islands” said Raul Bermudez, vice president of MarineMax Vacations. ”Navigare is one of the world’s industry leaders for sailing charter vacations. Our shared vision to create an exceptional vacation experience is key with our mutual passion for unmatched guest service, yacht maintenance and expert delivery.”
