United Island & Yacht Partners with Acquera Yachting

We are absolutely thrilled to announce that we have entered into a strategic partnership with Mediterranean based ACQUERA YACHTING. The partnership is expected to accelerate growth for both entities, and will center on creating tangible benefits for yachts looking for full yacht agency services both in the Mediterranean as well as in Florida and the Bahamas.

The new partnership leverages the respective strengths of Acquera Yachting and United Island & Yacht, with both companies sharing the same work and service ethos. With the needs of the market at the forefront, the initial focus is to identify synergies and streamline commercial, operating procedures and IT, in order to ensure the same level of excellence and service regardless of where the yacht is cruising.

The partnership is an important step in the execution of Acquera Yachting’s growth strategy, and supports the company’s accelerated business momentum. Over the last three years, 18 offices have been opened across 8 countries; France, Monaco, Italy, Croatia, Montenegro, Albania, Greece and Turkey. United Island & Yacht have offices in Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach, Florida including Rybovich Superyacht Marina and their sister company looks after yachts in Nassau, the Bahamas

“This exciting partnership is a powerful combination of businesses, and is an important first step in accessing the American and the Bahamas market, and ultimately brings us one step closer to our goal of extending our commercial offer. Both companies are already well established within the market, and the agreement will offer a clear path towards a more attractive client journey. I have known Joe Dargavage for many years, and I have a deep respect for what he and his partner Laura Garcia-Bartenfelder do. We’re excited to join forces with them in order to expand our network of clients and reach.” said Stefano Tositti, CEO of Acquera Yachting.

“In our five years of tremendous growth in the Florida and Bahamas region we felt that it was a natural transition to expand our reach to the Mediterranean market. In doing so we knew that we would have to pair up with the absolute best, we have found all that we have been looking for in Acquera Yachting. We now know that the yachts we work with will receive the same impeccable level of service in both parts of the world” says United Island & Yacht partner Laura Garcia-Bartenfelder.
