Group Chairman Ray Flowers of Blackrock Yachting in Chichester updated the members on the latest development and enhancements with the group IT platform, which is the yacht brokerage management software tool used by each office and unique to the Network Yacht Brokers group. Update on the latest developments with the multiple boat selling platforms utilised by Network Yacht Brokers is part of the group's USP of providing the widest possible marketing reach internationally. More exposure and more inquiries result in more sales for our clients.
