Majesty and Sovereign Join Forces
Dubai-based Majesty Yachts, the superyacht brand of the Gulf Craft Group, selected Florida-based Sovereign Marine Group as its new representative in the United States. The Majesty range, which currently extends from 44 to 135 feet, debuted in 2004. Majesty builds its resin-infused yachts in a dedicated 500,000 square-foot facility in the United Arab Emirates to comply with a wide range of classifications including ABS, MCA, RINA and Lloyds. Marking the builder’s 30th anniversary was the launch of the Majesty flagship, the 135-foot Lady Tahiti, featured in Yachts International in November. At the other end of the range, the company recently introduced two new models below 56 feet to the South American market.
Mondo Marine and Denison Partner in the US
Denison Yacht Sales is the new US representative for Savona, Italy-based Mondo Marine. As Mondo Marine North America, the Fort Lauderdale-based brokerage firm, which recently introduced its new superyacht division, will serve as the shipyard’s direct representative on the North American market. Mondo Marine, a custom yachtbuilder, is a member of the Superyacht Builders Association (SYBAss), a professional organization representing the world’s top builders. For years it catered to a small group of high-profile European yacht owners, building among others high-profile vessels, Luciano Benetton’s exceptional explorer yacht Tribu. In 2012, Roberto Zambrini took the helm as CEO of Mondo Marine Spa and Mondo Marine Engineering. A few months later, in Monaco, the builder showcased the 134-foot (41-meter) all-aluminum Okko and introduced the M50, an explorer signed by designers Hot Lab, which will be delivered in 2014. With new leadership and new models, the experienced shipyard set its sights on the Americas. Mondo Marine’s Fort Lauderdale office joins newly opened locations in Milan and São Paolo, Brazil with a London office slated to open in the near future.
