The International Yacht Collection, which is a division of the Trinity Yachts, recently acquired The Sacks Group Yachting Professionals. This acquisition makes the IYC a formidable entity, offering myriad services that not very many companies can claim to offer. Both the companies will bring in their expertise and experience in charter, brokerage and management of a fleet consisting of 160 luxury yachts.
Jennifer M. Saia, Owner of The Sacks Group, who will take over the role of Executive Director of the Luxury Yacht Vacation Division, said: “The vision of The Sacks Group Yachting Professionals has always been: ‘To Exceed Expectations with a Professional Service in the World of Luxury Yachting … I’m proud to say that in my 20 years with The Sacks Group, and almost 17 years as a President and Charter Specialist, my team and I have delivered this vision to hundreds of satisfied yacht owners, charter clients, captains and crew. Now, the opportunity has arrived to make a change that will enhance this vision and provide even greater resources and opportunities to our clients and staff, supported by IYC’s amazing worldwide operation.”
She added, “However, we will still remain a ‘boutique’ operation in terms of the individualized, custom-tailored service we provide our clients. Our clients now will have the best of all three firms’ experience, expertise and relationships with the yachting industry around the globe. This merger is a winning proposition for everyone.” She is right and yacht owners or potential buyers should take note of this.
