After French Dufour Yachts created its North American branch in 2016, it is further accelerating its development of the U.S. market.
The company has added Laurent Fabre to expand its dealer network and increase Dufour’s presence in North America.
Fabre, who previously headed up Beneteau America, departed to begin consulting for European companies that wish to enter the North American market.
"I am confident that Laurent and Eric Macklin will form a tremendous team to develop our brand in North America,” said Dufour Yachts chairman and CEO Salvatore Serio in a statement.
"I am very excited, as Dufour is one of the fastest growing brands in the world,” said Fabre. “Dufour yachts are fantastic products, and I trust that the American sailors will enjoy the performance, the comfort and the innovation that they bring."
