Italian boatbuilder Filippetti Yacht has announced the launch of Filippetti USA. The new distribution centre will be based in Ft Lauderdale, Florida, and headed by Darren Datson and Monica Hernandez.
Headquartered in Mondolfo, in the Province of Pesaro and Urbino, Filippetti produces motoryachts up to 35m. The company was founded by Fausto Filippetti, a co-founder of Pershing Yachts.
The Filippetti USA team says that quality, performance, sea-keeping and service were the main focus for launching the brand in the US market. They will be working closely with clients and brokers that take the same approach.
The brand’s portfolio comprises three yacht series: Flybridge (F series), Sport (S series) and Navetta (N series).
Filippetti’s latest model, the F93, is currently under construction and due for delivery in summer 2016.
In addition, construction of the S65 for the US market will begin in December 2015, for delivery next year.
