Happy New Year

Wow!  I can’t believe 2012 has flown by and I haven’t posted anything since last January.  But it was an amazing year at Oceanic with a great deal happening so updates were sadly neglected.  Of course that meant I didn’t get much racing in either but perhaps that will change in 2013……

We opened a new office in Silicon Valley at the new and beautifully designed marina at Westpoint Harbor in Redwood City.  For individuals living in the Bay area’s south peninsula, Westpoint Harbor offers a central location, generous amenities and Mediterranean weather.  Please check out their website at www.westpointharbor.com.

Consequently, a new office meant adding more sales representatives in Silicon Valley.  David Lee started in June 2012 and Rick Pfaff will be starting this month.  Both will be working at our Westpoint Harbor office.  David has a long history in yacht sales in the Bay area.  Please read his bio at www.oceanicyachts.com, under Meet the Crew.  His cell number is 510.381.1400.  Rick Pfaff, a past Commodore of the St. Francis Yacht Club, recently sold his company but being an avid sailor and owner of the famous sailboat, Alpha, a 47′ Sparkman and Stephens Custom Aluminum Sloop, he wanted to stay close to the water.  Rick has sailed Alpha on San Francisco Bay for the past 22 years and now has her for sale with Oceanic.  If you would like to contact Rick, his cell phone is 650.222.4563.  Photos and specs for Alpha can be found under Yachts for Sale at oceanicyachts.com.

Meanwhile, Oceanic is working towards building its sailboat division under the direction of Joe Biondo.  I heard of Joe when he worked a few years ago for another Bay area brokerage because he was achieving outstanding sales results during the worse of times for this industry.  Joe started with Oceanic in the fall of 2010 on a part-time basis but is now working full-time out of our Sausalito office.  His marketing skills are superb. And interestingly, Oceanic is now being approached by several sailboat manufacturers in the United States and Europe to perhaps represent their brands in the bay area.  Stay posted. And check out our sailboat listings as well.

Our office at Perry’s Harbor in the Delta continues going strong.  Last year we quickly sold our inventory there so we are eager to replace those listings.  For interested clients, Oceanic can offer covered or uncovered slips.  We also intend to add to our sales force in the Delta area if anyone is interested.  Our sales rep, Steve Coghlan, has been managing that division alone so would welcome assistance with an office that still has much potential.  If you are interested and have serious sales experience, please give me a call at 415.377.0866.

I am proud to say we were successful in selling a number of boats in 2012 which I have listed below.  Thank you to our many clients who come back to Oceanic time and time again, for referring us to family and friends, and to new clients who have put their trust in our experience and customer service.  We couldn’t do any of this without you.

And as we continue to forge our way into the 21st century, we are building on social medial outlets as well.  Check out our Tumblr page entitled The Nautical Life at oceanicyachts.tumblr.com.  It’s an interesting visual collage of nautical events, products, videos, etc.  Enjoy and Happy New Year.
