MIAMI – A British Virgin Islands corporation is suing a Miami Beach yacht dealer alleging that it misrepresented that additional upgrades were not included in the original purchase price of a yacht.
Hyded Trading Corp. filed a complaint on March 16 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against YachtBrasil Motor Boats and Charters LLC, citing fraud, negligent misrepresentation and other counts.
