four decades of PROFESSIONAL PURCHASE & TECH SUPPORT

With a 45-year sailing heritage, we bring an unparalleled level of knowledge to your yacht purchase.

Born as the Great Hudson Sailing Center in 1978, we became one of the first U.S. BENETEAU dealers in 1986, growing into one of the largest and longstanding dealers in the country. In 2015, we acquired the NY & NJ SailTime franchise to help make yacht ownership more affordable and hassle free for aspiring yacht owners. In 2022, we expanded from monohulls to multihulls as a Lagoon Catamarans dealer and evolved our brand from Great Hudson Sailing to Vital Force Yachting.
