MarineMax Vacations has announced it is welcoming Cooper Boating as a preferred partner.
The MarineMax Vacations Preferred Partner Program matches charter operations around the world with those desiring an uncompromising adventure aboard a luxury charter yacht.
“We have selected Cooper Boating as a partner, not only because they have the award-winning Aquila 44 power catamaran in their charter fleet, but also for their quality reputation, leadership in the region and dedication to customer service,” said Raul Bermudez, vice president MarineMax’s charter division.
Cooper Yacht Charters was started in 1983 by Forbes Cooper, who is often credited as being British Columbia’s most successful boat builder.
Cooper sold the charter and school business in 1988 and later sold the boat factory to others, although he does still build select custom projects under his WestCoast Custom Yachts brand.
“Having the only two Aquila 44s in the country available for charter provides a unique luxury offering to those who are new or seasoned bareboat charterers,” said Colin Jackson, president of Cooper Boating.
“We are excited about our partnering with Cooper Boating. Now our loyal customers have a reliable opportunity to charter a boat in beautiful British Columbia from an operation that has the same focus of luxury, quality and customer service that has become expected from MarineMax Vacations,” Bermudez added.
