Alexander Marine, the Taiwan-based builder of Ocean Alexander yachts, has appointed Giaroli s.a.s as its exclusive distributor in Europe, Russia and Turkey.

Managed by Giampaolo Murzi, Giaroli has three offices in Italy and also locations in France, Spain and Croatia. The company’s enormous network of offices will allow Giaroli to offer the full range of Ocean Alexander yachts and all servicing facilities.

“We see great potential for increasing brand awareness and market share for Ocean Alexander with this new partnership,” said John Chueh, president of Alexander Marine. “Giaroli s.a.s. has a wealth of experience in the yachting industry which will serve our yacht owners well.”

Ocean Alexander has factories in Taiwan and China, making it one of the largest yacht builders in Asia. The company is based in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, and its yachts are available through US dealers in Seattle, Washington, Fort Lauderdale, Florida; and Newport Beach, California.

Giaroli was established in 1984 as an importer of motor yachts from Grand Banks Yachts, Hinckley Yachts, Magnum Marine, Nauticat and Arcadia in Italy, France and nearby countries.
