Our History

Nearly 40 Years of Continuous Sales and Outfitting Professionalism

Massey Enterprises, Incorporated has continuously been in the yacht sales and outfitting business in Florida since 1977. Massey Yacht Sales & Service has continuously been in the yacht sales and outfitting business since 1986. During that nearly forty year period Massey has sold and outfitted new and pre-owned sailboats, trawlers, motoryachts, downeast style yachts, sailing and power catamarans. Massey has sold and delivered in excess of 4,000 yachts from 28’ to 62’.

Over the years Massey has been dealers for Island Packet, Beneteau, Jeanneau, Catalina, Hunter, Nordic Tug, Mariner and Helmsman Trawlers, True North, Albin and Mainship trawlers and downeast boats.  Massey was the sole sales agent in the United States for Sunsail boats being placed into charter for twelve years. Massey has owned a sailing yacht charter company in the Tampa Bay area.

The brokerage business has grown every year at Massey Yacht Sales. We are and have been the number one brokerage house for the sale of sailing yachts from 30’ to 55’ in the state of Florida for the past seven years. Our trawler, motoryacht and down east business is increasing every year as well. The three marina offices have been the key to growing the brokerage business. Massey has offered high visibility slips at discounted rates to brokerage yacht owners that list their yachts with Massey for over 20 years. The future growth in our brokerage yacht sales will center around our growing team of Mobile Brokers.

Massey has won sales and customer service awards every year from a variety of builders. Ed Massey was the recipient of the Sail Magazine Industry Leadership award in 2009.

The internet has changed the way yachting enthusiasts buy and sell their yachts. Massey has always been a leader in developing productive and interactive websites. Most recently Massey has launched the Massey Smart Search website. The Smart Search is cutting edge, intuitive, easy and powerful. The internet presence is enhanced by a long history of print advertising, boat show attendance and events built around the Massey marina based offices.

The real strength of Massey lies in its sales team, administration and service department, and access to the best sub contractors in the industry. It has taken many years to develop these teams and relationships. Massey is expanding the sales team with the growth of the Mobile Broker locations. We continue to strengthen and support those important assets.

This rich diversity of yachting experience, industry relationships and success has provided Massey with expertise in all areas of the marine business. We have always been willing to share our knowledge in an effort to help boat buyers and sellers. At Massey, customer satisfaction has been and will remain our most important measure of success.
