Publish date:

Arcadia Yachts appointed Alessandro Diomedi to head its operations for the Americas.


The Italian builder said Diomedi was Ferretti Group manager for about 10 years, first for the Asian and later for the American markets.

The appointment coincides with the presentation of the Arcadia 85 at the Yacht & Brokerage Show in Miami Beach, which opens Thursday, and with the signing for a new Arcadia 85 that is destined for the South American market.

Company CEO Ugo Pellegrino recently told Trade Only Today that the company will focus its expansion efforts on “the resurgent U.S. market.”

“I am excited to become part of the Arcadia Yachts team,” Diomedi said in a statement. “I have carefully followed the launch and development of this project, admiring both the design choices and the new technological and ecological contents. The world of yachting is evolving. Customers now look closely at new ways to cruise and enjoy the sea. Arcadia’s international success is the proof.”
