    Azimut Yachts Reinforces its Leadership on the European Market

    A well-crafted sales and service exclusive agreement with Marina Estrella, the leading distributor in Spain.

    Azimut Yachts has recently entered into an important partnership with Marina Estrella, the Spain’s leading boat distributor. The agreement underscores the strategic importance of the Iberian market, one which has for years welcomed boat owners from all over Europe.

    With 20 sales and service centres and more than 30 years experience in marketing the world’s major boating brands, Marina Estrella is Spain’s largest pleasure-boat distributor.

    Paolo Casani, Azimut Yachts CEO, comments, “We are confident this new agreement will make our already extensive Spanish network even stronger; with its unique accommodations and beautiful landscape, Spain is a top destination for pleasure boating enthusiasts from all over the world.

    The agreement further confirms Azimut Yachts’ lead role as a worldwide ambassador of Made in Italy quality and design.

    Azimut Yachts and the Spanish dealer Marina Estrella – founded in 1972 by Jose Estrella – both share the passion and commitment of an entire family, who believes in the power of human resourcefulness”.

    Through its Azimut yacht sales and service activities, Marina Estrella joins the ranks of existing dealers Hermanos Berga and Marina Marbella, already well-established resources for Azimut Yachts customers in Spain.

    In this way, with already over 25 sales and service centres throughout the Iberian region, the capacity to service the Azimut brand continues to grow.

    Francisco Rivas, Marina Estrella CEO, underscores, “We are very happy about this collaboration and look forward to combining our distribution and service experience with that of Azimut Yachts, the Made in Italy yacht leader for innovation, quality, design, and breadth of offerings.

    We are two strong organisations, with both of us accustomed to playing a lead role in the market. This is why we are so confident we are going to build a great future together. We will be able to take full advantage of a market which has undergone a rapid transformation in recent years; it is a market focussed on secure values, and one where having financial strength and stability represents an increasingly important guarantee for our boat owners”.
