STATEN ISLAND YACHT SALES OPENS NEW LOCATION IN NEWPORT
“Our expansion into Newport is an example of our continued growth as a company,” said Jay Hendrix, Vice President of SI Yachts. “Our clients boat north to south and many stay in Newport during season. It just makes sense for us to have a presence there to continue our unparalleled level of service to our clients.”
The new SI Yachts location will be at 1 Goat Island. This will be the fourth location for SI Yachts in addition to Staten Island, Freeport, and Montauk.
ABOUT staten island yacht sales
Staten Island Yacht Sales, founded in 1964 as Staten Island Boat Sales, began as a mere dream and has since expanded into one of the largest mid-size yacht dealerships in the world. Prior to the 1964 opening, its founders Phillip Bongiorno and his son Frank were selling Owens and Ulrichsen boats for Schatz Bros. in Brooklyn.
As the Verrazano Bridge was being constructed Phil and Frank, as entrepreneurs, decided to make that big leap only others dream about and go into business for themselves in Staten Island. The business began with a purchase of a trailer and a plot of land in Great Kills which is now the current site of our Staten Island location. In 1973 we leased a space on Woodcleft Canal, Freeport, Long New York and in 1978 we purchased the facility. The rest as they say is history for SI Yachts. Staten Island Yacht Sales' primary focus is about building long term relationships. SI Yachts is the Northeast's Most Powerful Yacht Sales and Brokerage Firm.
When you ask Frank Bongiorno to comment, "After 52 years of success, we have seen our fair share of ups and downs. We have learned a great deal from our experiences and applied that hard earned knowledge to our business to make us stronger, more resilient and even more customer focused. At SI Yachts, we focus on the things we know we can control and adapt to the competitive landscape. Creating satisfied customers is the number one priority each and every day."
