Turkish builder Numarine named French Boat Market as its exclusive distributor for France and Monaco, one of the yard’s strategic markets.

“We spent a long time evaluating several opportunities for partnership in this key European market — we needed a partner that would commit to increasing the local awareness of the brand, to creating a strong local sales network and to provide the proper local support to present and future Numarine clients. Lionel Vergnes and his team at French Boat Market are the ideal fit,” Numarine sales and marketing director Antonio Caviglia said in a statement.

“Numarine is the perfect complement to our current portfolio, providing a range of boats from 60 feet to [137 feet] known for their innovative design, build quality, performing seaworthiness and customizable interiors,” Vergnes said. “We are very pleased to be representing them in France and Monaco.”
