The offices are only a short distance from where the Toronto International Boat Show is held and Executive Yacht arranged valet parking to make it easier for people to join their event. Guests included a number of both their clients and business associates who gathered for friendly conversation, and elegant table of hors d’oeuvres, whiskey nosing and live entertainment.

Elegant Hors Doeuvres

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.
