Costa Rica Yacht Sales is part of the Landon Marine Group. The LMG is managed by Eric Landon, a resident of Costa Rica since 1993. Boating has grown dramatically in Costa Rica in the last twenty years. The advent of new Marinas established under special legislation passed in 1999, gave boat owners the opportunity to import boats in to government approved Marinas without paying the duties and taxes. This was the basis for the first Marina to be built under these regulations in Los Sueños. Marina Papagayo and Marina Pez Vela have now also qualified under this legislation.
Once these Marinas became popular with boaters from all over the world, the industry took off. Requirements for parts and service by skilled knowledgeable technicians increased quickly. The Landon Marine Group recognized this need and found that the aftermarket requirements of selling boats was to provide quality warranty services for the components that these boats contained. CR Marine Supply was opened and has been the back bone of our ongoing operations including factory training of our technicians and an increasing inventory of supplies and spares to service the industry.
Costa Rica Yacht Sales has grown to include Chris Martin, an experienced and dedicated Yacht Broker from Florida, who heads up the Sales Division. Chris is assisted by Alvaro Zamora a salesman, formerly working for Apex Inflatables of Costa Rica. Alvaro heads up the Boston Whaler, Beneteau and soon to be AB inflatables from Columbia. Milady Borbon has become a valuable sales assistant, and looks after details in sales, importing and documenting of the boats. Reymond Rodriguez is actively involved as a Lead Captain and assists in sales, delivery and maintenance of the boats we represent. Denise Petersen handles our accounting and business end of CRYS.
We have just opened a new Marine Store in Marina Pez Vela in anticipation of the new Boat Yard which is scheduled to open summer of 2014. Also a new Sales Office will be opened in MPV in the summer of 2014.
Our goals are to offer a full lineup of manufacturers to fill every need in new and used boats. Looking forward to serving you in the near future.
