CMC has opened a new office in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Headquartered in Pisa, Italy, CMC Marine makes stabilizers, stern- and bow-thrusters for yachts above 52 feet LOA.

The office will be managed by Alessandro Gallifuoco, vice president of CMC Marine USA. It will handle sales, service and retrofitting.

“The United States is an extremely interesting country for CMC Marine, with about 25 percent of the yachts our systems are installed on navigating in US waters,” said Gallifuoco in a statement. “Having a new site in Florida will allow us to keep a closer eye on the market and work to satisfy demand from a customer base that is, for many aspects, different from the European one.”

CMC will distribute its full range of stabilizers and thrusters, including its Stabilis Electra line. The company said it will also invest in its service infrastructure. The company is also considering manufacturing its stabilizers in the U.S.

Its facility in the Lauderdale Marine Center was opened in September.
