Irish Yacht Broker Seeks Out New Markets

There's no doubt about the lengths MGM boats of Dun Laoghaire will go to seek out new markets. We reported on the MGM Boats stand at the Dubai Show on St. Patricks day. Russia is also a growth market in the yachting industry and having brokered a significant number of boats into Russia throughout the last couple of years, the Irish firm undertook a second trip to Russia in March for the Moscow Boat Show. Thinking ahead MGM's John O'Kane and Joe Hill brought a copy of their favourite magazine with them as its hard to find on Red Square.

In the last 12 months, MGM Boats have travelled to many foreign markets including Dubai, Sweden, Finland, Siberia and Moscow as well as the more common European yachting centres in France, Spain, Portugal, Italy and the Balearic Islands. "MGM Boats are one of the few International Yacht Brokerage companies who "get out from behind the desk" to best market the clients' boat and there is no doubt that this approach yields results for the client," says the firm's Joe Hill.
