Italy’s Sanlorenzo has announced the opening of a new brand representative office in Egypt.

Local firm Alkhalil Trading L.L.C., now trading as Sanlorenzo Egypt, will offer the Italian motoryacht range to Egyptian owners.

The office is located in Abu Tig Marina in the El Gouna resort, a popular yachting destination in the Hurghada region of the Red Sea.

Sanlorenzo Egypt’s managing director is Tarek Khalil, a mechanical engineer who founded Alkhalil Trading L.L.C. in 1994 and since then has been successfully involved in many areas of business across Egypt and the Middle East.

“I have personally been boating in the Red Sea for the past 25 years,” says Khalil. “The marine service industry is already well established in the Hurghada region of the Red Sea and Alkhalil Trading is instrumental in the development of the rapidly growing luxury boat market across Egypt.”

Sanlorenzo Egypt will provide after-sales service support on-site through the existing Alkhalil Trading service centre, in order to support both existing and new customers throughout Egypt.

Alkhalil Trading has been distributing boats up to 80ft in Egypt for the past five years and the addition of Sanlorenzo motoryachts complement the current range of boats.
