This superyacht CEO didn't sell Jeff Bezos a $500M boat but confirms demand is 'absolutely incredible'
MarineMax CEO and President Brett McGill is no stranger to selling superyachts that cost anywhere from $200,000 to $100 million to the ultra wealthy. Actually, it's his job to do so.
And based on years of experience, McGill understands why Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos may be building a monster of a floating luxury vessel.
"First thing I thought is why didn't my team get a hold of him and sell him a boat," joked McGill on Yahoo Finance Live when asked about his thoughts on the boat-buying Bezos. "Beyond that, I think it's relative for everybody. For some a 20-foot boat with three family members out anchored up on an island creating a memory that lasts forever to a yacht like that [Bezos'] where you can have several families and fishing gear, diving and snorkeling and tour the world — to each his own."
