Yachting brokerage Edmiston & Co. and Viking Sport Cruisers have both opened in Palm Beach of late, following a change by the Town Council allowing yachting brokerages to operate in traditional retail spaces, the Palm Beach Daily News reported. “Whilst Fort Lauderdale is considered by some to be the center of yachting in South Florida, we believe that Palm Beach is superior and the clientele more in line with our style,” said Nicholas Edmiston, chairman of Edmiston & Co. Viking Sport Cruisers has opened on Royal Poinciana and Edmiston has set up shop on Worth Avenue. The two follow the opening of Worth Avenue Yachts at 150 Worth Avenue.  [Palm Beach Daily News]
