Joining Ahoy Club and the Paramount Connection with Hot Yachts Miami
Katya's decision to join Ahoy Club was driven by the company's exceptional culture and commitment to innovation.

Impressed by their team spirit, innovation, and unmatched customer service, Katya knew that Ahoy Club was a place where she belonged.
Furthermore, the connection between Ahoy Club and Paramount+ added another layer of excitement to her decision.
