According to the release, “Launch Broker Services plans to bring something different to the industry by offering its listings for sale to the entire Velocity Powerboats dealer network helping them sell more boats, create new relationships and introduce more customers to the Velocity Powerboats brand. This extended network will allow our customers to get their listings in front of many more potential buyers.”
Broker-partners in the new venture, the release stated, include marine industry notable Reggie Fountain, III, the son of Fountain Powerboats founder Reggie Fountain, Jr., and Ryan Jenkins. Braithwaite also plans to add other brokers to the team.
“We are in the relationship business and we could not be happier with the team and staff we have,” he said in the release. “This is only the beginning.”
