Italy's Telemar Yachting recently completed the "Americanization" of the 127- foot Chinese-built, Italian-designed yacht Prima Donna, the first large Chinese yacht to be delivered to the United States by IAG Yachts, according to the company.

"This clearly demonstrates Telemar Yachting's global capabilities and the substantial cost savings to the builder by being able to use our local Chinese office," Telemar Yachting Americas manager Mark Theissen said in a statement.

"Not only was Telemar directly involved from the start in the initial build in China and then through her sea trials, but now we complete the global seamless service by customizing her for the unique electronics requirements of her new base in the U.S.A.," he added.
