QPS Marine Ships is a ship brokerage firm focused on providing quality services to our clients. We are proud to be associated with Nautical Ventures Group, a global leader in the maritime industry. We specialize in assisting clients with their vessel needs, offering an extensive selection of new and pre-owned vessels, as well as the expertise to identify the vessel that best meets their needs. Our team of professionals is committed to providing the highest level of service and support to ensure the success of each transaction. With a combined experience of over 20 years in the marine industry, we are the ones to trust when it comes to buying, selling, and managing your vessel.
In 2010 when the idea of establishing an online internet-based cruise/passenger ship brokerage firm was first discussed, it seemed like a no-brainier to us. One of our associates previously served as the president of a well-known cruise line, and we had more than a basic understanding of ships and the cruise business. Besides, marketing and sales were second nature to us, how could we miss?
Before the establishment of QPS Marine Ships, cruise and passenger ships were sold and chartered by stodgy brokerage firms that were in existence since the beginning of time. If your great grandfather was not a founding member of your firm, you were not to be trusted, especially as a ship broker.
When we started, "Word of Mouth" and the "Buddy System" were the primary methods of sales promotion, not the internet. How things have changed.
The Association Between QPS Marine Ships and Nautical Ventures Group
Recognizing a potential benefit of an association between Nautical Ventures Group (internally known as Team Orange) and QPS Marine Ships, the two companies formed an informal association. Although Team Orange is normally associated with vessels substantially smaller than the five hundred to one thousand-foot vessels sold and chartered by QPS, the relationship is based on friendship and mutual respect for each companies’ business expertise.
Today, Nautical Ventures Group consist of seven retail locations in Florida, USA. They are recognized by the publication, Boating Industry as one of the top ten Boat Dealers in the country. Employing over one-hundred and fifty, sales, marketing, management, service and finance specialist make them an ideal maritime partner for QPS Marine Ships. Now Team Orange could legitimately use the slogan, "we sell everything from Kayaks to Cruise Ships."
In addition to QPS's association with Nautical Ventures Group, we maintain long-term relationships with over twenty well know and well-respected ship brokers in various locations though out the World. Although we pride ourselves with being in direct contact with the owner of just about every cruise ship, passenger vessel and every RO/PAX Ferry owner in the World, there might be the rare occasion when we do not have what a buyer needs, but our associate broker will.
