Fort Lauderdale-based Yacht Sales International has been named as the exclusive North American dealer for Adler Yacht as the European brand seeks to enter the U.S. market.

The yachts are designed and engineered in Switzerland and built in Italy.

“When we met Wendy Meade and Udo Willersinn from Yacht Sales International in 2017, we immediately had a common understanding for yachting, and what nowadays yacht owners want and need,” said Adler Yacht CEO Philipp Pototschnik in a statement.

“We appreciate the knowledge and network Yacht Sales International has gained over the past years. We feel strong support from the partner we can trust in,” Pototschnik said. “With Udo and Wendy, we know, we are on the right path for mixing up the U.S. yachting market.”

“According to the usage behavior and the luxury and design U.S. customers are expecting, we knew that we could fulfill a demand which was still not satisfied,” Pototschnik said.
