VONORE, TN – HCB Center Console Yachts™ continued its aggressive ascension as a yacht builder by signing Staten Island Yacht Sales. HCB’s Annex Program began with Plantation Boat Mart’s Islamorada and Palm Beach locations upon the company’s reincarnation as a custom boat builder in 2012. Since then, growing demand for its premium center consoles prompted them to expand their Annex partner program; with Chesapeake Yacht Center as the first Annex to sign just a few weeks ago.
“We couldn’t be happier about partnering with a first-class organization like Staten Island Yacht Sales.” said CEO Elias De La Torre III. “Our factory-partnered model and focus on the customer has been a central component of our business from the start. Annexes like Staten Island Yacht Sales help us make the purchase and service process as seamless and top shelf as possible, while raising positive awareness of our brand.”
The Annex Program goes hand-in-hand with HCB’s extensive customer care experience. Called the Crucero Experience,™ it is a highly customized approach that begins at customer courtship through the build process, commissioning, and ownership. It is designed to keep all phases of the process exciting and underscore the premium nature of HCB’s custom center console yachts.
“Staten Island Yacht shares HCB’s business philosophy when it comes to serving the discerning, affluent yacht buyer,” said owner Frank Bongiorno. “We’ve been committed since 1964 to delivering a level of service and care that’s rare in our industry. It is refreshing when we find a partner who understands the right way to do business at this level. HCB owners will appreciate our attention to detail and access to our world-class, full-service marina.”
HCB Center Console Yachts™ creates custom, offshore center console yachts for the discerning custom buyer. They offer models ranging from 39 to 53 feet, with a new 65-foot model being added this fall.
