Gulf Coast’s premier Yacht Yard Saunders Yachtworks and Costa Rica’s largest Marina and Boatyard Marina Pez Vela have announced a strategic partnership that joins the two prominent companies together for purposes of assisting their overlapping customer base and providing international support between the two companies.

The relationship between the two facilities was sparked by former partner of Marina Pez Vela and current Board Chairman at Saunders, Jim Bronstien. Jim has always believed there was a strong opportunity to have a working relationship between the two companies since so many of their customers travel between the two locations. Over the past year, Saunders President John Fitzgerald and Marina Pez Vela General Manager, Jeff Duchesneau have had the chance to build their own relationship and after much discussion, the strategic partnership became obvious.
