Rhode Island-based KVH Industries has created KVH Superyacht Group, a division established to serve the mobile connectivity and satellite television needs of large yachts.

The group is headed by Jim George, senior director of global leisure sales, who has been a marine sales leader for more than 20 years at KVH. George and his team will focus on providing customized services for yacht captains, charterers and owners.

Based in the company’s Fort Lauderdale office are Darryl Matfin, superyacht sales manager; Steve Gorman, superyacht field engineer; and Roberta Dodero, superyacht account manager.

Matfin has a business development background specializing in the marine industry, including 10 years as managing director of the yacht division of a marine electronics and AV/IT integrator. Gorman has more than 25 years of experience as a marine electronics dealer. Dodero has been an account manager for the past 17 years, specializing in services including licensed news, movies, and sports content supplied to KVH’s customers in the cruise, leisure and other maritime industries.

Andrew Bush, a KVH sales manager based in Liverpool, England, will direct the superyacht-focused efforts in the Europe-Middle East-Africa region, including the Mediterranean.

“KVH is committed to providing a platinum-level experience for superyachts, knowing that each of these vessels has very specific needs,” George stated in a news release.
