Acquera Yachting has announced an expansion plan that will see the yacht agency further extend its global coverage with offices opening in Monaco, Antibes and St. Tropez for the coming season. It is hoped that the geographical expansion will provide clients wishing to cruise in the Italian Riviera, south of France and Monaco with a better client experience.

In order to consolidate the position of Acquera Yachting in the region, the team has been joined by Xavier Paris, who will manage the operation and be responsible for Acquera’s ambitious growth plans in the area.

“We are very happy to be entering these new territories and are thrilled that Xavier Paris decided to join the team. He brings with him 14 years of industry experience and excellent knowledge of the destinations,” comments Stefano Tositti, CEO of Acquera Yachting. “This will allow Acquera Yachting to rapidly establish itself within the market and improve our global yacht coverage.”

“I couldn’t be happier to join forces with such an inspiring and exciting new company,” adds Paris. “I have known Stefano Tositti and some of his team for many years and have a great respect for what they are doing within the market and the future business plan.”

This news follows the announcement in March that Acquera Yachting has been granted the commercial rights to manage the superyacht berths in Casamicciola Marina, Ischia, as well as operation of the sole helipad on the island. The marina, which opened in 2004, is located in the Gulf of Naples and has 158 berths that can accommodate superyachts up to 90m. According to Acquera Yachting, the Island of Ischia provides an opportunity for superyacht owners and guests to explore alternative itineraries to the more well-known destinations around Capri and the Amalfi Coast.
