Timone Yachts is looking south and is hoping to create an outpost in the southern Marches, looking to the Lower Adriatic.
More or less everyone is on summer holidays now, but not in Timone Yachts, who are already revving their engines for September, gifting us during this hot month of August, with a partnership with Fortek Nautica, a company from Benedetto del Tronto, led by Gianni Fulgenzi, specialised in shipbuilding services, sales of new and used sail and motor vessels, and the hire of motor and sail boats.
The news comes this week of an agreement between the two companies, initiated by the group based in Senigallia with the aim of opening up to the south of the Marches, creating an outpost for the development of their business throughout the Lower Adriatic.
Timone Yachts Group also has a shipyard in Fano, and it is the official dealer for Azimut Yachts throughout the central and upper Adriatic, in addition to the Republic of San Marino and other important international markets. After a number of partnerships, the time has finally come to explore a new market segment, together with a well-established and well-known business in the southern Marches.
The first official outing of the two brands, Timone Yachts and Fortek Nautica, is planned for 7 September at the Cannes Yachting Festival. During the huge event along the Croisette, TY and Fortek Nautica will début their recently created partnership, which will develop over the next year through their participation in other industry events.
“We are taking a good run up to face the challenges of the next year – notes Luigi Gambelli, CEO of TYG – in line with our philosophy meaning that we never have to stop with the results we have achieved, but keep looking to the future. We have already felt the need for a while to look to the south, to an area we have yet to adequately explore.”
“We are certain – concludes Gambelli – that, together with Fortek, we will all be quite satisfied, embracing the opportunities in a sector that luckily has not had many negative repercussions from Covid, but which still needs to learn how to renew and relaunch itself. We have an important season ahead of us.”
