Lizard Yacht Service, based near Falmouth in Cornwall, has announced that it is opening a new office in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to service superyacht customers in the USA and the Caribbean.

This is the latest business expansion from Lizard Yacht Service, which opened an office in Palma, Mallorca last year to service superyacht customers in the Mediterranean.

Managing director, Emlyn Jones, said: “This is a really exciting development for us. The superyacht industry is continuing to grow worldwide. Superyacht customers have very exact requirements and we have built our company ethos around delivering the stellar levels of customer service they expect.”

The company has grown significantly since its launch in spring 2021. New business successes include major projects in Antigua and Turkey, securing sole European distributor rights for the SeaClean System, and being appointed as the Wills Ridley servicing centre for the Balearic Islands.

The new office in Fort Lauderdale will be headed up by Freddy Quintero, an engineer with many years experience in the superyacht sector in the US. It will service the superyacht industry in the USA south of Savannah, Georgia and throughout the Caribbean chain of islands.

Freddy Quintero says: “Lizard Yacht Service will bring outstanding levels of service to the US superyacht industry, and I am delighted to become part of its team. “

Lizard Yacht Service will provide services out of the Fort Lauderdale office which include full mains and genset servicing for superyachts, as well as parts sales from all major suppliers, including Northern Lights, Cat, Kohler and John Deere. They will also offer 3D vessel scanning and crew clothing from Musto and Helly Hansen. 

Within the past year, Fort Lauderdale has commissioned a massive new marina development, to help meet with increasing demand from superyacht customers.

Emlyn Jones adds: “The superyacht industry is driven by ongoing innovation, and we are focused on delivering levels of service that set new standards for the industry.”
