Yacht Works increases its brand representation with their appointment as the official Everglades
Dealer in Miami-Dade and Monroe counties encompassing one of Everglades’ most important
markets. Yacht Works is already the official Everglades dealer on Lake Michigan and this
expansion greatly solidifies the growing relationship between the manufacturer and dealer.
“We are extremely pleased to expand our Everglades representation in South Florida. The boats
have a finish that is second to none and a ride that can only be described when you are behind the
wheel. I have personally run these boats in the harshest conditions on Lake Michigan and they
are truly something special. We feel very fortunate to have this opportunity”, stated Russ
Forkert, president of the Yacht Works organization.
“We are very pleased to expand our partnership with Yacht Works past the Great Lakes and into
the southeast Florida market. We are very confident in our ability to grow our business with
Russ and his entire organization”, said Bryan Harris, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at
