Allied Marine announced an enhanced relationship with its controlling company, Ferretti Group, by becoming the exclusive dealer for Ferretti Yachts, Pershing, Itama, Riva and Mochi Craft along the U.S. East Coast, as well as an authorized dealer for CRN and Custom Line.

Allied Marine has been focused on yacht sales and charter in the 50- to 100-foot range, and has a superyacht team focused on the 100-plus foot market. The move will allow the company to further develop those core business areas and bring a portfolio of new models to its clientele.

“These brands encompass the most exquisite yachts and custom superyachts in the world today,” Allied Marine chief sales and marketing officer Justin Blue said in a statement. “With over 70 years of assisting our clients to make their dreams become reality, our team is highly experienced in the industry. Becoming a dealership gives us the breadth and ability to secure our lead position in the global market.”

“Our customers trust the integrity, passion and experience of Allied Marine for new yacht sales, brokerage and charter,” Allied Marine president Jon Burkard said. “These relationships, founded on our service, have allowed us to build a loyal customer base that fuels our evolution, an evolution that is fully reflected in the relaunch of our brand.”
