Burger Boat Company and Ocean Independence make changes

ADVERTISEMENT

Wisconsin-based Burger Boat Company no longer sells pre-owned brokerage boats. All of its brokerage business — BYS facilities, brokers and associates — have transitioned to the Ft. Lauderdale office of Ocean Independence.

The Switzerland-based charter, management and brokerage firm named Thom Conboy as its president of the Americas where he will oversee the operation and all new business development, focusing on brokerage and new construction sales. The brokerage team includes Cheryl Toney as vice president, Michael Bach in project development, and Chris Collins, Julien Elfenbein and Teddy Garsva as brokers.

Heading the office’s charter division is Daphne d’Offay. Ocean Independence has 115 yachts in its fleet.

Burger Boat Company will continue to build new yachts at its yard in Manitowoc, Wisc.

One thought on “Burger Boat Company and Ocean Independence make changes

  1. bill

    “Burger will continue to build new yachts….” Really?

    No offense intended, but they have not started a new yacht in years, have not delivered one in years and have a total of ZERO under construction from what I understand. I could be wrong….
