Oct 8, 2012 by Guest Writer

Vicem Yachts announced that Sarasota Yacht & Ship has been named the official distributor for the Americas, which includes North, South and Central America, as well as Canada and the Caribbean.

Gary Smith, senior partner with Sarasota Yacht & Ship, replaces Dave Mallach.

“We are very excited about the opportunities presented by this appointment and expanding our role with Vicem Yachts”, Gary Smith said. “The quality, fit, and finish work of a Vicem Yacht is second to none as the yachts are head-turners in every marina.”

“We have come to learn that Vicem offers the newest technologies integrated and combined with old-world craftsmanship to produce outstanding yachts both in fiberglass and cold molded materials,” Smith said.
Smith is an alumni of Louisiana State University and was one of the first in the state to obtain his Certified Professional Yacht Broker designation. He is vice-president of the Board of Directors for the Florida Yacht Brokers Association (FYBA), located in Ft. Lauderdale.

Sarasota Yacht and Ship Services has offices in three locations in Sarasota, including Marina Jack.
