Italian yacht builder Austin Parker said it has added Cape Yachts in Massachusetts to its North American dealer network.
Cape Yachts, which is in South Dartmouth, will exclusively represent Austin Parker in the northeast United States. Pisa-based Austin Parker builds yachts in the style of the traditional lobster boats that the fishermen of Maine use in the tough conditions of the Atlantic Ocean. The yard’s range consists of eight models from 36 to 74 feet.
“In this important yachting area of the USA the style and quality of our boats will certainly be particularly appreciated, and Cape Yachts’ tradition, reputation and service facilities will match with Austin Parker design and quality of construction,” Gianni Gravagno, managing director at Austin Parker Yacht USA, said in a statement.
Established in 1986, Cape Yachts is a family-owned and -operated business that provides boaters with yacht services, powerboats and sailboats. It shares a facility with its sister company, South Wharf Yacht Yard & Marina, and has been in business for 30 years.
“Austin Parker Yachts are held with great esteem throughout Europe and we are proud to now offer our clients the exceptional quality, custom workmanship and on-water performance of these fine yachts,” Dave Nolan, owner of Cape Yachts & South Wharf Yacht Yard, said in a statement.
“Austin Parker is launching several new yachts this year, including the new AP44 Sedan, AP48 Flybridge and the AP64 Flybridge designed by the renowned Fulvio De Simoni,” Nolan added. “Each of these luxurious yachts appeal to our New England Down East heritage while offering our customers a custom yachting option not already owned by each of their friends and neighbors.”
