CLEARWATER, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- MarineMax is pleased announce their one year anniversary of the launch of MarineMax Vacations Yacht Charter Division.

MarineMax Vacations has been delivering outstanding charter vacations in the British Virgin Islands with the newest and most exceptional fleet in the market since its introduction in October 2011.

During the past year not only have we raised the standards for yachts in the charter industry with the addition of standard water makers, electric toilets and Wi-Fi to our Dufour built sailboats and the Aquila power fleet, but also raised the level of exceptional customer service and personal attention in the delivery of charter vacations," said Raul Bermudez, VP of Sales and Marketing at MarineMax Vacations.
