S&S Expands Newport, RI

Sparkman & Stephens is pleased to announce the expansion of their Design Department to Newport, Rhode Island. Yacht design, naval architecture, and marine engineering services is now offered at both the New York and Newport locations.

President Bruce Johnson notes: "We feel we can better serve our client base, local boat builders, and service yards by positioning permanent design personnel in our Newport offices. As the yachting center of the Northeast, Newport is the natural location for our expansion."


In Newport, the S&S design staff will focus on new designs for custom one-off and production yacht construction in both power and sail, as well as refit work. The design team is comprised of two talented naval architects, Brendan and Daniela Abbott. The designers have joined two knowledgeable S&S brokers, Jeff Grey and A.J. Evans. Jeff also manages after-sales and refit services for S&S.

With support from satellite locations in Newport and Fort Lauderdale, Sparkman & Stephens continually aims to broaden its services and presence within the yachting community.



The Newport office is located at 555B Thames Street.
