DT&F: Expanding New Yacht Construction Business in U.S.

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

Following its assessment of activity at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show, Dwight Tracy & Friends Yacht Sales announced expansion of its program for representing new construction shipyards, both in the U.S. and Europe.  According to DT&F founder and CEO Dwight Tracy,
“The current strength of the euro against the U.S. dollar, and the current situation in our domestic new yacht market, makes this a time of opportunity for European yacht buyers in search of first-quality vessels. The key, however, to a successful buying experience is to have representation that is knowledgeable and experienced. We’ve positioned ourselves with a New Build Program that is led by a former CEO of world renowned new build shipyard, Palmer Johnson Yachts. So, when we say that DT&F can deliver to a client the best and most successful new yacht purchase experience available, we really can. No ands, ifs, or buts.”
According to New Build and Refit Program director Phil Friedman, the latest DT&F initiative is an omnibus menu of value-added services that includes initial concept development to project planning, build team coordination, project management, owner representation, and ancillary support in the areas of finance and insurance. Noted designers, naval architects and engineers, shipyards, and ancillary service providers have strategically associated with the new DT&F program in a commitment to providing what Friedman calls “rapid-response” service — the ability to breathe creativity and practical reality into a developing project within days and weeks, as opposed to the months and years often experienced in such endeavors.
Friedman’s background in yacht design, construction, project development and marine business management spans some 30 years in the yachting industry. His recently published eBook, Ten Golden Rules for Successful New Build Projects, has received high praise from noted industry professionals, and is available free by emailing a request to Phil@DTFyachts.com.
Said Friedman of his role and the DT&F New Build Program,
“This program is a natural outgrowth of what I’ve been doing for the past twenty-five or so years. My over-riding goal is to make a client’s new-build experience memorable in the best sense of the term, one replete with the excitement, pleasure, and personal satisfaction that I know from experience can accompany such an undertaking. And to my mind, DT&F constitutes the most hospitable industry venue in which to make that happen.”
