Arcadia Yachts adds dealer in China

Italian shipyard Arcadia Yachts named Eletek Technology as its exclusive dealer for Greater China.

Italian shipyard Arcadia Yachts named Eletek Technology as its exclusive dealer for Greater China and Eletek predicts that 15 Arcadia boats will be sold there during the next five years.

The first show for Arcadia and its Arcadia 85 will be the 2015 Hong Kong Gold Coast Boat Show.

"We are very excited for this strategic agreement with Eletek,” Arcadia Yachts president Ugo Pellegrino said in a statement. “We are confident that our yachts can have a serious success with potential Chinese yacht owners for several reasons. First of all, new and current Arcadia models are so different from all the other yachts and comply in full with the Chinese yacht buyer’s expectation for excellent seakeeping; our yachts count on generous, roomy and shielded spaces (about 220 square meters), as Arcadia offers by its aft deck. Arcadia's maximum beams are the largest available on the market.”

“After a long and accurate market survey in search of the ideal motoryacht suitable for the China market, Eletek selected Arcadia’s production since we are convinced that the peculiarities offered by Arcadia's innovative projects comply perfectly with the Chinese growing clientele,” Eletek CEO W.K. Leung said.

“New technologies, green approach, modern design, innovative concept for space distribution on board and an unmatchable comfort in navigation make all Arcadia models unique and pertaining to a ‘new yacht generation,’ ” Leung said.
