Monte Fino Yachts Ltd, the exclusive European distributor of the popular range of motoryachts from 76 to 122 feet, has acquired the exclusive European rights to market three yachts formerly sold under the Trader brand.
The three motoryachts were originally marketed as the 64 Sunliner, the 575 Sunliner and the 535 Signature, and will continue to be build by Kha Shing Shipyard in Taiwan, which owns the rights to the designs (the 64 is owned jointly with naval architect Tony Castro) and also builds the Monte Fino range. These highly regarded, ocean‐going motoryachts will be rebranded the Monte Fino T‐range and a 495 model will be added as the smallest member of the new range, replacing the former Trader Signature 475.
“It’s a logical move for us,” said Nigel Stevens of Monte Fino Yachts, “given our close relationship with Kha Shing. The T‐range also extends our portfolio with a new range of motoryachts that slots in neatly below our current smallest model, the 76, as well as introducing to Monte Fino a completely different style when compared to our larger custom yachts, thereby bringing in a whole new group of customers.“
