The American brokerage firm Merle Wood & Associates has just announced its acquisition of Chamberlain Yachts, in addition to the appointment of the companies owner Kent Chamberlain as the CEO.

Kent Chamberlain brings more than 40 years of experience in the industry to Merle Wood & Associates, previously serving as General Manager of Bradford Yachts, Vice President of Westship Yachts, General Manager of Merle Wood & Associates and, most recently, owner of Chamberlain Yachts.

Merle Wood, Chairman of Merle Wood & Associates commented, “I tapped Chamberlain for this role because of his collegial style and reputation for bringing yacht brokers together.” The move also allows Wood to focus on superyacht clients rather than day-to-day operations. John Cohen, Director of Sales & Charter, said the new addition will help update the company’s marketing and technology services and increase sales productivity.
