Welcome to Newport Living and Lifestyles
I’m Christon and we are at the
2019 Newport International Boat Show and
joining us today is Andrew Savage from Boston Yacht Sales, Welcome
What a beautiful and gorgeous day we have here.
This is perfect boat show weather today. We are thrilled, the docks are full.
This gonna be a great great weekend for us.
Tell us a little bit about you, where are you from?
Sure, I’m from Marblehead Massachusetts
I grew up in Maine, near where these beautiful boats were built and
I work with Boston Yacht Sales here out of Weymouth as well as Falmouth and the Marblehead office.
How’d you even get into the industry ?
You know it’s a second life for me. It’s something I’m really passionate about.
I’ve been with them for five years now. It was a funny story actually.
I was looking for my next boat. I knew it was gonna be a Sabre or a Back Cove.
I started working with them and loved the brands, love the people and it’s a family business.
That worked out perfectly, timing was great for me and been with them ever since.
Where do you sell? What’s your basic geographical area?
My geographical area is New England primarily. We work with Sabre in Back Cove in Massachusetts and in Rhode Island.
The boats are built up in Maine, so we have a lot of clients up in that area as well.
What attracted you specifically to Boston Yacht Sale’s?
It’s the people. This industry is a small industry but it’s all about relationships and the people.
We are really fortunate to have people that have been working in this industry for over 50 years and really care about their clients.
So, so far in five years what’s your most sentimental testimonial?
You know it’s really interesting we get so many families on these boats,
they are really couples and multi-generational boats.
That it’s not one particular instance but it’s the time that these boats allow families and
multi generations to have together on the water.
If I’m out off Stellwagen watching the whales and all of a sudden two other boats pull up and
they’re my clients and I see them with their families out there, that’s what
gets me really excited and about what we do.
And whales !
That’s a good secondary plus.
Well , that’s the great thing about these boats, they have lots of range, people can take them up
and down the coast, they can go to Florida on them for the winter
What are some unique things about these particular boats that most people love?
Sure, so Sabre and Back Cove are sister companies. They’re down east traditional
Maine style boats, really set up for comfort and cruising, but also very
functional for day use. We have couples that can live on them for months
at a time and other families that just use them as a day boat .
I have got to see these closets!
We’ve got room for everything! Wardrobe after wardrobe.
They’re classic in style,
Yes, really nice lines, they’re classic, they’re clean.
Classic Maine built boats.
I love this leather interior that you guys have on this one.
I love the trim, the classic cherry interior so it’s a very yacht feeling,
but a very traditional yacht feeling but within a modern propulsion package and modern technologies.
What kind of engines are you guys working with?
The Sabres all come with either Volvo Penta IPS drives or Cummins Zeus drives, which are pod driven boats.
These are twin Diesel’s. The pods allow for joystick functionality.
I love the joystick
It makes around the dock, it makes everybody look like a superstar!
Even I can use the joystick to dock
Especially, grand kids and kids get on the boat,
If they’ve been playing video games all their life, this is child’s play for them.
Then the sister company, Back Cove, is a little bit more of a traditional economical kind of lobster boat functionality,
where they are all single engine outboard boats.
What’s your hottest selling product?
The hottest selling product right now for Sabre is the one we’re standing on right now.
The 45, which is a new model about 18 months ago. Really popular twin cabin design and
then for Back Cove they introduced at this show last year, we introduced the 34o ,
which is the first outboard version of Back Cove.
We can’t keep those in stock.
Put your order in now
People can custom design these boats, I imagine.
Within a platform, yes, there’s a long options sheets, custom build them.
We often have them in stock too
See there guys, where else would you want to go?
Can you give us any insight scoop to what may be coming and for next year 2020?
Yeah, we’re really excited about next year, for both brands.
Sabre is coming out with a new 58.
Actually, that hull number one is just about complete.
We’re hoping to see that this winter.
That’s been so popular that we’ve sold the first 13 or 14 just off the drawings.
Beautiful three cabin three stateroom boat.
Then Back Cove just yesterday here at the show announced
their second outboard boat which will be a 39-foot, 39o, 39-foot two cabin boat.
Since you have new product all the time, you must have a great celebrity clientele.
We do, If I told you, I would have to kill ya, right?
Yeah right! Just throw me overboard!
If you keep your eye out on the water you’ll notice enough out there,
we try to respect their privacy.
Do they have special celebrity flags, like a burgee, on the front?
They try to be incognito out there as well, that’s their family time as well.
That’s a great opportunity for them to get away from the hustle and bustle.
I’d like to ask, Do you have a signature dance move?
I know your kids will be able to tell all, but they’re not here today.
yeah, they would kill me.
We’ll do it together
Well I think I would just have to go with raise the roof
Alright! Raise the roof!
Boston Yacht Sales!
That is what we are hoping to do here this week
Oh I love that! That’s great!
