Allied Marine, the primary distributor for the Ferretti Group brands in North America, recently expanded its operations in the Northeast with the opening of an office in Newport, R.I.

The Allied Marine office in Newport will represent a selection of the group's most exclusive brands, including Ferretti Yachts, Pershing, Riva, Mochi Craft and CRN throughout Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut, in addition to offering brokerage vessels.

The Newport office will operate in concert with the Allied Marine office in Sag Harbor, which primarily supports New York and Long Island. The new location will operate year-round; the Sag Harbor office will be open seasonally from May through September.

"The Newport location was a strong strategic choice for us, as we have a significant number of clients with homes in both the Northeast and Florida. We see tremendous opportunities for the Ferretti, Riva, Mochi Craft and Pershing products, particularly in the Northeast. We are now poised to better serve our clients' needs while offering an extensive product portfolio to the area," Allied Marine president Robert McDougal said in a statement.

Jim Mattingly was appointed sales manager to spearhead Allied Marine's Newport location. He previously served as marketing and sales director for Palmer Johnson, and went on to found Nautor's Swan sailboat company. He also spent years managing the new construction, service and brokerage offices for Robert E. Derecktor & Co. in New York, Florida and Rhode Island, where he was vice president for marketing and sales.
