EKKA YACHTS and SUNREEF YACHTS Join Forces for Distribution of Luxury Catamarans in Greece
Multi-brand dealership and yachting services provider EKKA Yachts of Athens, Greece, and Sunreef yachts, a leader in the design and production of luxury catamarans have announced the establishment of a dealership agreement for the Greek territory.
The new partnership is the result of EKKA Yachts’ strategic objective to enrich their existing product offering of motor and sailing yacht dealerships with a quality multihull brand. “In our mind there is no better time for a partner such as Sunreef Yachts. Their “tailor-made” approach, design characteristics and boat-building capabilities have impressed us and address very well the needs of the fast-growing Greek market. Prospective clients include a good part of our existing clientele who have developed an interest in sailing and power catamarans in recent years” said Dimitris Kyriazakos, managing director and yacht broker at EKKA Yachts.
We are aware of the quality of services and experience in yachting and local market of Ekka Yachts. We are strongly convinced that together with Ekka Yachts will be able to attract even more interest in our catamarans among Greek buyers, said Francis Lapp –Founder and President at Sunreef Yachts
The two companies will be investing in developing the Sunreef Yachts brand in Greece through
a plan to “educate” the Greek market on the merits of ownership of Sunreef Yachts sail and power models in a highly dynamic and demanding cruising ground such as the Greek one. A team of specialised sales consultants has been assembled and a dedicated marketing plan is being implemented.
The Greek market is one of the biggest yachting markets in the world for yachts sized over 24m. in length, and the home of the world’s third largest fleet of superyachts (40 meters and over) according to recent reports by Knight Frank and Bloomberg. Greece’s seas are also the fourth most popular destination for these luxury vessels, with more than 100 super-yachts with an average length of 50 meters sailing or at anchor within two miles of the country’s shores every week of the summer months, according to the same report.
