Fabio Ermetto, Chief Commercial Officer of Benetti, comments: “This signed contract was the result of a positive long term collaboration with the team from Ocean Independence who represented the client in this project and who were able to interact in an extremely professional manner with the team from the yard. This confirms the trend of Benetti's commercial collaboration with the worldwide brokerage network and specifically with the major brokerage houses.”
Peter Hürzeler, Managing Partner of OCEAN Independence added: “For this client of leading broker Marc Händle, value and volume were high on the priority list. Together we could achieve the required volume in a yacht that was shorter compared to the competition, exactly within the range the Client had stipulated as his maximum length, and it was this combination together with Benetti’s professional flexibility, wide range of options and style that won the day.”
