Benetti Americas has relocated its US aftersales office to the Lauderdale Marine Center (LDC) in Ft Lauderdale, Florida. This new base will allow the company to improve its aftersales service to Benetti’s American clients and visiting yachts.

In a statement LDC said: “Benetti Americas has signed a multi-year lease for office space at the 65-acre Lauderdale Marine Center. In addition to taking space at the facility, LMC has become a Benetti Service Partner. Benetti will use the facility for its service operations and after-market sales team.”

"In choosing Lauderdale Marine Center, as its regional service facility,” commented Doug West, president of LDC, “Benetti is recognising the competitive benefits our facility has to offer - from its sheer size and ability to haul boats up to 485 tonnes, to our Foreign Trade Zone which will allow Benetti to import boats to our facility duty free.”

The growing number of tenant at LDC means a significant marine cluster of companies are based at this leading superyacht refit facility. Benetti Americas joins Northrop & Johnson who recently moved to LDC and other leading international players such as Ferretti Group and Pinmar USA.
