Albury Brothers Boats Opens Newport Shipyard Office
RIVIERA BEACH, FL August 25, 2015 - To better serve clients in the Northeast, Albury Brothers is opening an office at Newport Shipyard and Marina, in Newport, Rhode Island. This office opens in September, coinciding with the annual Newport Boat and Brokerage Shows.
To inaugurate this new location, an Albury Brothers 27 will make the voyage from Sandy Hook, NJ to Newport, RI on Friday September 4. This boat is available for inspection or sea trial all along the route, and in Narragansett Bay during Labor Day weekend. She will remain on display at Shipyard through September. The Newport office will be staffed on a seasonal, part time, basis.
Jeff Lichterman, President of Albury Brothers said, “We are excited and pleased to have this opportunity. Our boats have a nice following from Marblehead and Maine, through Shelter Island and the Hamptons. Having a central location in Newport, especially at the fabulous Shipyard, will allow prospective clients to inspect and sea trial our boats, without having to travel to West Palm Beach. ”
Albury Brothers is also pleased to announce our association with Eastport Yacht Co./ Weaver-Price Design, in Annapolis, Maryland. Tom Weaver will be representing Albury Brothers Boats on the Chesapeake Bay on a non-exclusive basis.
“Tom and I share mutual friends from Tom’s superb Grand Prix and America’s Cup sailing career. I earned additional respect for Tom after seeing the level of customer service he provides his Eastport 32 clients. We shared a vision of many Albury Brothers Boats running around Chesapeake Bay, as they do in the Sea of Abaco”, said Lichterman. New Albury Brothers Boats will be on display in Newport and Annapolis on aperiodic basis.
Albury Brothers Boats are built in Man O’ War, Abaco, Bahamas and Riviera Beach, Florida. Recently Albury Brothers in Florida expanded into a second production facility. The new facility is dedicated to building the 27 and 33 foot models. The 20 and 23 foot models are built in the original plant. In addition, the company operates a 4,500 square foot sales and rigging shop.
