De Antonio Yachts, based in Barcelona, Spain, has added Nautical Ventures as its dealer for the entire state of Florida. The retailer will also be responsible for setting up additional dealers throughout North America and the Caribbean.

De Antonio Yachts offers eight models ranging from 28 to 46 feet. The company’s flagship D46 was recently named the 2019 European Powerboat of the Year.

“Our priority, after design and space, has always been innovation,” Stan Chmielewski, co-founder and sales director for De Antonio Yachts, said in a statement. “Our hidden outboard engine design is a very good example of what we can achieve, and we believe Nautical Ventures will provide a good podium from which we can deliver our message to America.”

Roger Moore, CEO of Nautical Ventures, said his company is developing a reputation for bringing unique European brands to the United States. “We’re discovering more and more U.S. customers who recognize and appreciate the new benefits that brands such as De Antonio bring to the American boating culture,” said Moore in the statement.

Nautical Ventures will show De Antonio’s 2020 models at the Miami International Boat Show in February.
