Randolph (Randy) has 18 years in the yachting industry. Born outside of Philadelphia, PA, Randy is a graduate of Villanova University and a lifelong boater. During and after college Randy worked in the insurance industry, and in 1994 Randy pursued his lifelong dream to work for Bertram Yacht in Miami Florida. Shortly after arriving Randy met George Jousma, then President of Richard Bertram Yachts, and moved from the wholesale sales side to the retail division at Richard Bertram. Randy’s passion for boating led him to quickly become one of the top new boat salespeople in the organization. In 2003, Randy’s success with the sale of the Azimut brand of motor yachts led him to the position of Director of Azimut Sales for Richard Bertram and Allied Marine Group where annual sales soared from $34 million to over $60 million in a matter of less than three years.
Randy has enjoyed the position as one of the industry experts in the field of European style motor yachts in the US. His passion, integrity and knowledge drive him to succeed and maintain his reputation.
Specialties: Having a unique understanding and passion for various yachting cultures has led me to focus my efforts on the Italian luxury motor yacht industry. My current venture with Sanlorenzo Yachts has given me the ability to work closely with the customer, translating their desires and passions into a unique motor yacht built specifically for them. This provides a more personalized experience for both and hopefully provides an everlasting and positive experience for each customer.
Ferretti Yachts Brand Manager - Americas @ Ferretti has always had, as part of its DNA, a vocation for research, innovation and a perfect combination of the latter with design, to guarantee high-end space functionality and comfort on board. This is why - in 1989 - the Engineering Division, AYT&D – Advanced Yacht Technology & Design as of today, was established, a centre specialising in new craft design as standard and in the search for new materials, equipped with cutting-edge technologies and unique in the yachting industry, not only in Italy. The experience accrued over the years thanks to Offshore competitions has allowed us to transfer the results of technological research conducted for sports competition to standard production. Over the years Ferretti has introduced innovative solutions which have shaped pleasure yachting worldwide: the up-and-over window between salon and cockpit, the underwater discharge and F-tdr (Ferretti trim and drag reduction) systems. Most recently, mention should be made of the air bag for anchor chains, the hull windows, XFT technology (Cross Fibre Technology), monitoring and control systems (NaviOp and Gi8), as well as of the revolutionary ARG (Anti Rolling Gyros): this is a gyroscopic device which, using the movement of a rotor, substantially reduces rolling on yachts. Comfort on board is ensured by maximum attention paid to noise emissions: indeed Ferretti is the first shipyard to have certified its craft according to the ISO14509 standard two years before it entered into force. From February 2015 to Present (7 months) Miami/Fort Lauderdale AreaRegional Director - USA @ For close to half a century, Nautor's Swan has been the true sailor's choice, designing and building luxurious, high performance yachts in Northern Finland. The value of a Swan is derived from the company's strong heritage, skilled craftsmen and pursuit of excellence in every aspect of the build. From the design process to production, the best quality materials and innovative technology are used to deliver the most elegant and safest sailing yachts in the world. Camper & Nicholsons Yachts, established in 1782, is one of the most significant and glamorous contributors to the history of yachting. The Company’s continued commitment to innovation, quality, reliability and most importantly style will lead yachting into the 21st century. C&N Yachts is part of Nautor Holding, which includes Nautor’s Swan and Marina di Scarlino. “I have always been fascinated by the history of Camper & Nicholsons. When looking at the J Class yachts such as Endeavour, Velsheda and Shamrock, I was entranced by the elegance and style of these masterpieces so much so that I was immediately inspired to apply these values to power boats. As a passionate sailor, these yachts have been a constant inspiration as we developed the commuter line for C&N which is a sign of commitment to the unique history of this extraordinary company”.
