Italian shipyard Dreamline Yachts is partnering with Florida-based Intermarine Yacht Group as its exclusive distributor to open up the U.S. and Canadian markets.
"We are excited about this agreement, which will allow us to penetrate the American and Canadian markets with an excellent partner," Dreamline Yachts CEO Paolo Bencivenni said in a statement.
"Intermarine Yacht Group, based in Florida, has extensive experience and knowledge in the yacht sales and yacht brokerage industry with offices in Fort Lauderdale, Dania and Jupiter, all major areas of activity for yachting.”
The decision to enter the American market is the result of “an increasing interest in our product line coming from the U.S. and Canada,” Bencivenni said.
“Through our collaboration with Intermarine Yacht Group we are dedicated to offering a unique range of yachts in terms of quality and innovation, as well as superior after-sales service and support to our U.S. and Canadian customers,” he said. “Dreamline Yachts and Intermarine Yacht Group are both committed to fulfilling our customer’s highest expectations."
The Dreamline Yachts lineup consists of the Dreamline 26, Dreamline 30, Dreamline 34, Dreamline 40, Dreamline 46 and Dreamline 49.
Three Dreamline 26 yachts have been delivered, and two are under construction. Two Dreamline 34 Yachts have been sold, along with a newly ordered Dreamline 30.
The Dreamline 40, Dreamline 46 and the Dreamline 49 are available in fiberglass and aluminum.
Dreamline said it is finalizing a planned extension of the yacht line to meet growing demand.
"We are very impressed with the Dreamline Yachts production facility and build quality,” Intermarine Yacht Group partners Luc Thibault and Patrick Galipeau said.
“We already have strong interest in the Dreamline Yachts product line being expressed by a number of our loyal clients. We feel the state-of-the-art technology, performance, comfort, fuel efficiency and the outstanding design of Dreamline Yachts enables us to offer our customers a yacht that stands out from the field. We are very excited to see what our new partnership with Dreamline Yachts can achieve in the future."
