New President for Superyacht Brokerage House

Having recently absorbed The Sacks Group into the fold Felix Sabates, Chairman of International Yacht Collection (IYC), has announced the appointment of Bob Saxon, as President.  He will take office on 1 January 2011.
Saxon is an industry veteran having created Bob Saxon Associates a yacht management and crewing agency, a brand he sold to Camper & Nicholson USA.  He went on to become President of that group and subsequently set up his own superyacht consultancy service in January 2009. Most recently he was President of the Florida Yacht Brokers Association (FYBA).
2011 sees not only his return to mainstream brokerage but also sees him return to head up The Sacks Group a position he has held once before in his chequered career
Sabates whose holdings also include Trinity Yachts said, “There is no one better suited to expand IYC’s worldwide brand: a strategic model that incorporates all aspects of the yachting lifestyle.”
He continued, “IYC’s current active fleet of 150 yachts represents three-quarters of a billion dollars in Central Listings, new builds from Trinity Yachts, charter management, yacht charter vacations having incorporated The Sacks Group into our family, yacht brokerage and yacht management. Bob Saxon’s reputation, his understanding of the yachting business and his ability to understand owners and their needs are critical to our expansion.”
IYC currently has approximately three quarters of a billion dollars in Central Listings, and over ninety superyachts within their central charter fleet.
