The agreement provides for the exclusive sales and distribution rights for three years, until August 2020, for Ferretti Yachts, Riva and Pershing yacht brands.
The choice to partner with Yacht Consult B.V. is part of the ongoing sales plan development, which also includes significant investments that Ferretti Group is implementing globally.
With this new dealership, the Group is expanding its network of selected distributors that are made up of over 60 dealers across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, the Americas and the Asia-Pacific region, providing services in over 80 countries around the world.
The decision aims to cater to the growing interest shown by a large number of yacht owners and enthusiasts in the wide-ranging fleet of open, coupé and flybridge yachts made under the Ferretti Yachts, Riva and Pershing brands.
Stefano de Vivo, Chief Commercial Officer of the Ferretti Group, said: “The agreement with Yacht Consult B.V is a new, important partnership in major markets for our Group as well as being crucially important for our strategy of further growth in central and northern Europe.
“We have chosen Yacht Consult B.V. as our partner for their considerable experience, know-how and reliability in the luxury goods sector. We are certain that this partnership will increase our market share in continental Europe, an area that has always been strongly attracted to the style, elegance and exclusive design of our brands, the standard bearers of Italian yachting.”
The A-Star Group Holding is a 50% owner of Yacht Consult B.V. and owned by Ben Van Loo, who is an entrepreneur and has been active in the real estate business and leisure industry. Yacht Consult B.V. has its headquarters in Mechelen and representative offices in Oostende and Loosdrecht (NL).
Yacht Consult B.V. will officially present the exclusive dealership agreement with Ferretti Group next October at the company Zoute Events, organiser of the Zoute Grand Prix which takes place in Knokke (Le Zoute) on the Belgian seacoast. The meeting will be attended by Stefano de Vivo as the representative of the Ferretti Group, and Manu Deceuninck of Yacht Consult B.V.
