“We are pleased to have George onboard our growing team,” said Jim Berulis, vice president of SYC. “He is well-known and well-respected in the superyacht industry and will be a valuable asset for SYC.”

Whitehouse was most recently with Lauderdale Marine Center, and previously with Rybovich.

Savannah Yacht Center, located five minutes from downtown Savannah, offers a range of services in refit, maintenance and repair. The former Intermarine yard’s 140m graving dock is open and a 3,240-ton syncrolift is expected to be available “shortly”, according to the release. Pinmar offers full-service yacht painting, scaffolding, containment, hardware removal and reinstallation at the yard.

Yacht crew will have 24-hour access to the crew lounge and new gym, and a café is expected to open by year end, according to SYC. For more information, visit SavannahYC.com.
