CEO Derek Mader welcomed us to the event and shared with us that while all their brands are doing well, all the shipyards are very busy and that retail was strong. He also commented that their shipyards really support Executive Yacht and when they send their clients to visit a yard, they always get a great tour. The Executive Yacht group enjoyed a very successful boat show and the evening was a wonderful way to celebrate their success and show their appreciation to their clients.

Live entertainment gave the event a special tone.
