“The opening of the Italian office is the first step in our development plan,” says Ermetto, seen on the left in the pictures above with yard founder and former owner Frans Heesen, who remains chairman of the yard and a recent client. “In the near future we plan to open further public relations offices in strategic locations”. The Mediterranean Sea is a favourite destination for the majority of our yachts and Viareggio is at the very heart of our business. Our location on Via Coppino, the yachting industry’s ‘5th Avenue ’ is the perfect place to meet the media, designers, brokers and so on.”
