ART MARINE has cemented its position as Middle East’s largest and most recognized 360° Regional Leisure Yachting Enterprise, with the recent award received from Ferretti Group as the No.1 Riva Exclusive Dealer in the world.
The ‘Best Sales Performance 2017’ was assigned to the dealer that performed consistently throughout the nautical year of 2016/2017 and registered the highest volume of sales based on value.
ART MARINE excelled this year in sales of the Riva yachts, of which it is Exclusive Dealer across the UAE (Dubai and Abu Dhabi) Oman, Qatar and Egypt since 2013, with a total value of just under Dhs 207m.
The Dubai International Boat Show, which celebrated its 25thanniversary earlier this year, proved once again how important the luxury yacht market is to the region with a number of sales secured by ART MARINE at this year’s show.
Speaking about the Award, CEO of ART MARINE, Gregor Stinner said, “Our partnership with the Ferretti Group continues to bear fruit for us across the region. The synergies between our two entities are compelling and coupled with our passion for Riva, as well as the other Ferretti Group brands, have played a huge part in us winning the ‘Best Sales Performance 2017’.
We will continue to work with dedication, transparency and excellent communication between the Ferretti Group management and the shipyard to ensure we continue the Riva success story in the Middle East.”
Giordano Pellacani, Riva Head of Sales, said, “ART MARINE’s performance over the past nautical year has been exemplary. The Middle East represents huge potential for Riva, and with ART MARINE, we are confident that we will see the brand go from strength to strength over the coming years.”
The next big stage for ART MARINE and Ferretti Group will be at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix where over 10 Riva yachts will be on display over the race weekend representing a 100% increase on last year’s participation.ART Marine not only offers new and pre-owned yacht sales, but also after sales service, yacht valet, yacht management, marina management and a marine products division that carries the regional distribution of brands such as William Tenders to name a few.
