Bio - ROGER GLASSFORD
Over 30 years ago I was fortunate enough to be in the right place at the right time, perceiving a need for a professional approach to the business of boat sales in BC and out of this epiphany, Grand Yachts Inc. was founded. Understanding that the competition was not within the industry but rather the other markets trying to attract recreational dollars, we formed the False Creek Marine Merchant's Association, along with other dealers in Vancouver's False Creek, cooperating with each other to bring buyers to our area and treating them to a common level of expertise in sales and service. This early association led to the formation of the BC Yacht Brokers Association and a move to our present Coal Harbour Marina location.
In the ‘80's, I was fortunate to meet Brian Kell and as partners we built the company out of the recession.
A renewed association with Tony Fleming and a sharing of his vision of a pilothouse cruising yacht resulted in Grand Yachts becoming the Canadian dealer for FLEMING YACHTS
Twenty-four years after delivering our first new FLEMING, I am pleased to be a member of FLEMING YACHTS CANADA, a subsidiary of Grand Yachts Inc. This new entity consists of a dedicated team representing FLEMING YACHTS, both sales and service, from our offices in Vancouver and Sidney, BC.
A client and friend once said that timing and luck are everything in life. This has certainly proved to be true in the ongoing growth of Grand Yachts. I am excited to continue to represent FLEMING YACHTS as part of the new FLEMING YACHTS CANADA team .
