We highly appreciate the possibility of working with a group like Caucasus Yachts that is part of Euro Marine and UGT Group, companies with a strong economic position in this country. Through the agreement with the most important player in this market, Ferretti Group will be able to build close relationship with the ship owners of this market.”
