Cantieri Estensi Yachts, an Italian builder of modern lobster-style boats, has appointed a new dealer for the Eur-Med region covering Italy, France, Monaco, Switzerland, Croatia, Spain and Germany.

Trading as Cantieri Estensi Europe, the new dealership is headed by a team of professionals with over 15 years of experience and is reporting high levels of traffic to its new website.

The partnership was officially announced at the recent Cannes Yachting Festival when Cantieri Estensi Europe closed the sale of a 645 Maine.

“We are really happy with this partnership,” says Simone Giudici, CEO at Estensi Yachts. “It is a new and significant chapter of the process of renewal and development of Cantieri Estensi Yachts, the company that has taken over all of the shipyard's assets, detaching entirely from the previous ownership and implementing an industrial plan aimed at strengthening the Italian and international market.

“In our country Cantieri Estensi Yachts is historically recognised as a manufacturer of modern lobster boats and trawlers,” he adds. “We are now aiming towards a commercial expansion of the shipyard also in the European market. The high number of visits that the dealer’s website has so far received, being online since a few weeks, is the confirmation of a great interest in the shipyard, as much as – unfortunately – the presence of unofficial websites trying to recall ours in the graphic design and the contents.”

Cantieri Estensi builds the Goldstar range of lobster boats from 36ft-56ft in classical and sport versions, as well as Maine yachts/trawlers from 48ft-64ft.
