Performance Yacht Sales, headquartered in Coconut Grove, FL, has opened its newest office at Brewer Stratford Marina in Stratford, CT. Offering a large selection of new sail- and powerboats from Bavaria, Performance Yacht Sales North East will also have select brokerage boats. “With the opening of our new boat sales and select brokerage office,” said Performance Yacht Sales President Alex Sastre, “We will be offering sailors and powerboaters from Maine to Maryland the extensive range of Bavaria boats, known for designs of the highest quality, with excellent attention to detail and value.”

Bavaria’s product line includes sailing yachts, motorboats and catamarans, built in the most advanced production facilities in the world. As the world’s number two production boat company, Bavaria delivers the most cost-competitive boats on the market.

The new office will be managed by veteran yachtsmen, with Kevin Dailey as Managing Director and Rusty Stewart as Sales Manager. Dailey is a highly regarded sailboat racer with nearly 40 years of experience in the marine business. During the course of his career, he has worked with North Sails, Nautor’s Swan, and Sparkman & Stephens. Stewart has more than 20 years in the marine industry and brings decades of expertise in helping clients find joy on the water. Both Dailey and Stewart have been sales and management leaders for one of the largest new boat dealers in New England where they were instrumental in sales growth and the introduction of new product lines to sailing and boating enthusiasts.

“Throughout my career, I have never seen a line of power and sailing boats more beautifully designed and built that are squarely aimed at the family market,” said Dailey. “There is nothing more satisfying than helping people share time together on the water, and I look forward to this exciting opportunity.”

Performance Yacht Sales will have a diverse selection of boats on display at the Newport International Boat Show in Newport, RI and the Norwalk Boat Show in Norwalk, CT in September, and the U.S. Sailboat Show and U.S. Powerboat Show in Annapolis, MD in October. For more information, visit
