Updated March 17, 2022
Merle Wood, Chairman of Merle Wood & Associates, announces the acquisition of Chamberlain Yachts and the appointment of Kent Chamberlain as CEO. Chamberlain brings more than 40 years of experience in the yachting industry, primarily in management and ownership roles.
I tapped Chamberlain for this role because of his collegial style and reputation for bringing yacht brokers together. – Merle Wood
Previously he served as General Manager of Bradford Yachts, Vice President of Westship Yachts, General Manager of Merle Wood & Associates and, most recently, owner of Chamberlain Yachts. He is also the Chairman of the Superyacht Network, a position he has held for 25 years.
Wood explained this move provides additional sales management and the ability to expand the company’s reach into new markets for the Production and Custom Yacht Division. The acquisition also provides additional management, allowing Wood more time 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.
With over $30 billion in sales, Merle Wood & Associates is expanding, both numerically and geographically. Chamberlain is pursuing industry experts from around the world who are seeking a progressive and symbiotic atmosphere, and an exceptional compensation package from an established brokerage firm with a worldwide reputation as a leading authority in the global yacht marketplace.
