Phuket’s Lee Marine has announced it has been appointed the exclusive agent in China, South-East Asia and Australia for prestigious Italian ship builder Cantiere delle Marche [CdM], maker of customized, steel hulled expedition “niche” megayachts.
Lee Marine will be agents for the new concept Darwin and Nauta Air range of ocean going, long range vessels capable of remaining at sea for months at a time and with ranges up to 7000nm. The Darwin and Nauta Air are considered “niche within a niche” boats as they combine the luxury specifications of a super yacht with the size of a steel hulled mini-ship designed for long range use, in this case at an average speed of 10 knots. The agency is for three years.
Said Vasco Buonpensiere, CdM Sales and Marketing Director, of the new partnership: “Lee Marine has a specific dealers DNA which means they share 100 percent of the mission, vision and values of the brand they represent, with no exception.”
Lee Marine Managing Director, Josh Lee: “Lee Marine shares the vision and philosophy of CdM regarding customer focused attention and absolute quality in terms of design and construction. We believe the Darwin and Nauta Air ranges will appeal to those looking to cruise Asia/Pacific wide, or beyond. Anywhere!”
