Off the Hook Yacht Sales Acquires Bennett Brothers Yachts and Boatyard

The Acquisition

On June 26, 2020, Off the Hook Yacht Sales NC, LLC, announced that it has acquired Bennett Brothers Yachts and Boatyard, a company specializing in the service, repair, and refit of boats and yachts, as well as travel lift services and hurricane haulouts. The purchase is a key element of Off the Hook Yacht Sales’ long term strategic plan of becoming the #1 dealer for premium used boats and yachts in the World. The new BBY name will be transitioned to ‘Off the Hook Yacht Services.’

This acquisition will allow Off The Hook Yacht Sales to streamline and consolidate several existing locations and operations in South Eastern North Carolina, while increasing the breadth and quality of its service offerings. Additionally, Off The Hook Yacht Sales is extremely excited to be able to contribute to the development along the Cape Fear River in Downtown Wilmington and be a large contributor within the local economy.

Patricia and Connor are extremely excited about the new venture with Off the Hook Yacht Services. The acquisition allows Bennett Brothers Yachts to join a yacht sales company that is dynamic and innovative. “All of our employees look forward to continuing to provide outstanding service to our existing yacht owners and welcome new ones,” said Patricia Bennett. Connor Bennett will lead the team at Off The Hook Yacht Services. Off The Hook Yacht Sales sold a record number of boats last year and the ability to consolidate sales and service at one location, ensures quality and efficiency with a more timely turnaround.

We think it will be a great partnership – combining Ruegg’s expertise in Sales and Marketing, with the Bennetts experience in service and refits. We do the highest volume in the industry and we need more operations like this in order to support that. We look forward to serving the Wilmington area with the most efficient boat sales and service.”
