North South Nautical Group Inc. has recently expanded its operations into Eastern Ontario to better serve the region from Cobourg to Quebec. The company currently has three other Ontario-based locations in Port Credit, St. Catharine's and Orillia.
According to Mike Burns, president of North South Nautical Group Inc., the announcement follows the hiring of two yacht brokers based in Kanata, ON, and is a logical move due to the series of busy boating communities, as well as the potential growth of sales and listings in the region.
“Once we opened, the first logical expansion was to go into this market,” said Burns. “It may take time to build, but from past experience people in this region don't always want to come to Toronto or even to the west side of Toronto for a contact. Having brokers in this area definitely opens up the market a bit more for us.”
Burns continued to explain that having representation in Eastern Ontario will allow North South Nautical Group to better offer its services. Burns also mentioned the expansion enables North South to list more boats in different regions, providing people with more selection in a particular area.
“Due of the number of boats in the region, including Ottawa, Kingston, Gananoque and the entire area, with the combination of the size of our company as it is, gives us more exposure to those people who want to list their boat,” said Burns. “Eastern Ontario is a wonderful cruising area and we have dealt with many boaters in this region in the past. By establishing full-time yacht brokers in this area, our company can better offer our services to the boaters of this region and beyond.”
North South Nautical Group Inc. specializes in the sale of pre-owned power and sailing yachts.
