Westport Shipyard’s Yacht Sales division has announced the appointment of Chris June as sales representative and yacht broker at its Ft. Lauderdale headquarters. June joins a team of eight other brokers at the South Florida location and will be responsible for new and brokerage yacht sales.
June’s ten-year background in the large yacht industry includes tenure as owner of a Sarasota brokerage and on the staff of major brokerages in the Ft. Lauderdale area, where he has specialized in power yachts 50′ and larger.
“Westport’s focus on customer service matches my own,” June said, “so I see a great opportunity here for continued professional growth.”
Phil Purcell, vice president of sales and marketing, added that “Bringing Chris on board reflects the steady growth of Westport’s sales in the large yacht category, both in new construction and in brokerage yachts.”
