Benetti has been enjoying increased momentum in Asia Pacific with the emerging popularity of superyachts in this region. Clients from China, Australia and New Zealand have shown interest in the brand. In order to better understand the Benetti brand first hand, a number of potential buyers from these countries recently visited the shipyards in Italy.
“Benetti is the most prestigious superyacht brand in the world and we very much look forward to continuing our work with the Benetti team in Australia and New Zealand,” comments GLI CEO Perry James. “I believe our shared views of the brand essence, the unique product offering and dedicated service will bring the superior Benetti experience to the clients in these two countries.”
