“It’s better in the Bahamas,” the islands’ tourist board once told us. Uniesse — the Italian builder of vessels from 54 to 108 feet — has teamed with a revered Bahamian resort to take advantage of the island life.
The Uniesse Marine Group has launched its Yachting Lifestyle Partnership Program at Chub Cay Resort and Marina, located in the Berry Islands.
The partnership program will be open to current and former Uniesse owners as well as friends and family. For potential owners, Uniesse will have several models at Chub Cay and will fly clients from Fort Lauderdale to test models — the 54-foot Exuma models will be on hand to start, with vessels set up for fishing, diving and cruising — and enjoy the resort.
Flights from South Florida will be handled by charter airline Makers Air.
“We are excited to work with Chub Cay Resort & Marine and Makers Air,” said Uniesse Marine Group executive director David Schwedel in a statement. “Chub Cay is a gem in the middle of the Bahamian archipelago, an ecological oasis, which is comprised of 700 islands, 2,000 cays, and a total land area of about 5,400 square miles, of which less than 6 percent are inhabited — and Makers Air has been the airline to take us there for years.”
Uniesse says they are planning to work with more resorts in more regions in the near future.
“The program was developed as an extension of our service to the thousands of Uniesse stakeholders around the world, our ‘Uniesse family’. It will help them not only enjoy everything their yachts have to offer, but also provide them with select benefits that only being a part of the Uniesse family can enjoy,” stated Schwedel.
