Turkey-based Numarine said it has appointed Numarine USA as its exclusive distributor for the United States and Canada, in partnership with Bradford Marine.

Numarine USA — based in Fort Lauderdale — will organize and manage a network of sale and after-sale facilities for Numarine owners along the Atlantic and Pacific coastlines, and the Gulf of Mexico and Canada, while leveraging the capabilities, resources and infrastructures of Bradford Marine.

Third-generation Bradford Marine family member Jack Nitabach has taken the helm of Numarine USA to offer the products to clients in the United States.

“Numarine yachts are a new product to the U.S. market that I truly believe will offer U.S. clients the best value in the current market,” Nitabach said in a statement.

“Under the leadership of Numarine’s founder and CEO, Omer Malaz, the company has grown into one of the most efficient shipyards I have seen to date, producing some of the finest yachts available today. By adding the service and support of a major shipyard like Bradford Marine, we have the team necessary to build a new brand into a household name here in America.”

“Along with a well-established partner like Bradford Marine, Numarine USA is now perfectly poised to cater to the demanding North American clientele from the moment of the contract signature to the delivery and subsequent after-sales assistance,” Malaz said. “We expect great things from the partnership with Bradford.”

The 60 Flybridge will make its U.S. debut at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in November.
