Future GYA One Design Boat?

Donnie Brennan & Tom Copeman of Diversified Marine Services Inc are pleased to announce their association with Bennett Yachting as a sales agent for the new and exciting VX One-Design. From the Florida panhandle to Lake Charles Louisiana, Diversified Marine has the Gulf Coast covered.  Please contact us for a demo sail and find out what the future of one-design sailing has to offer @  donovanbrennan@gmail.com or work 251-473-7080, cell 251-404-2616 or stop by the shop 4610 Dauphin Island Parkway, Mobile, AL.

The VX is a fresh and exciting sport one-design for the international two to three person racing enthusiast. The design concept is born of a careful review of performance one-design demographics within this category worldwide. The VX offers sailors from Junior to Advanced a vehicle for perpetual enjoyment of performance sailing in an affordable, durable, and technically advanced package, and at a realistic price.

This boat very may well be the future of One Design Racing in the GYA.
