Annapolis Yacht Sales Continues Expansion
With New Hires
Annapolis Yacht Sales (AYS) is excited to welcome two new additions to the robust sales team already in place.
Mike Coe will be joining the crew based in Annapolis focusing on Beneteau Sailboats and Lagoon Catamarans. Mike is a lifelong sailing enthusiast and avid racer, he has won several North American Championships across different classes of boats, as well as posted top three finishes in every major east coast ocean race. His racing career has taken him all over North America, the Caribbean, and Europe Prior to AYS he served as Product Specialist for Jeanneau, National Sales and Marketing Manager for Sparcraft America, has had a ten year career as a sail maker with North Sails, and worked as a sailing coach.
“My experience in sailing is an asset for my clients,” explains Mike, “Not only can I help them find the right boat for them, I can help them get the most out of their experience by tailoring all of their accessories to their needs.”
Mike lives in Annapolis with his wife and will continue to be on the water and racing as often as possible. He will be working out of the Annapolis location selling new Beneteau sailboats, Lagoon Catamarans and quality pre-owned yachts.
In addition to Mike Coe, AYS is also pleased to welcome Ing Kiland to our Deltaville, VA office. Ing brings over 25 years of sales and business development experience and a lifelong passion for the outdoors to our Virginia office. Born into a Navy family, Ing grew up in Coronado and loved being around the water and Navy ships. He attended Christ Church Boarding School near Deltaville and learned to sail on the Potomac River and in Virginia Beach. After spending some time out West as a self proclaimed ‘ski-bum’ he and his wife moved back to Virginia. His wife is now a teacher at his alma mater, and he volunteers with the top ranked Sail Club.
Ing says he joined AYS “because of the long history and reputation of selling the best boats on the market. Being part of a team that is customer focused is a top priority for me and I have found that here.”
Ing will be representing the Deltaville office selling new Beneteau Sailboats, Lagoon Catamarans, and Edgewater Powerboats as well as quality pre-owned yachts.
