Tecnorib, the official licensee for Pirelli-branded RIBs, has added two new dealers to its distribution network. The first, BG Yachting, will handle the sale of Pirelli RIBs in Bulgaria, while SF Yachts, headquartered in Dubai, will cover the Middle Eastern region.

After the recent success of the Pirelli 1900, which launched at the 2017 Cannes Yachting Festival, the Lombardy-based company says it is working to expand its sales network and promote awareness of its inflatables outside Western Europe too.

BG Yachting is based in Nessebar, on Bulgaria’s Black Sea, in the district of Burgasin. The company, which was established in 2005 and is already the dealer for several prestige car marques, will distribute Pirelli RIBs in this area, where the industry is experiencing a period of expansion.

SF Yachts, headquartered in Dubai, will handle the sale and promotion of Pirelli rigid inflatable boats in Middle Eastern countries, where it has a consolidated presence and is already the dealer for many well-known international shipbuilders. CEO Francesco Pitea, a Sardinian engineer, has a long and varied background in the yachting sector, where he has worked for the last 15 years in various positions for diverse companies.

Tecnorib’s new flagship, the Pirelli 1900, has a resin-infused hull and 100% carbon hardtop, designed to lower the centre of gravity and improve performance. It was designed by by Mannerfelt Design Team.
