Apreamare Yachts announced in April that they were leaving the Italy-based Ferretti Group and that ownership would return to the founding Aprea and Pollio families, with Marc-Udo Broich as the new president and CEO. The company also plans to ramp-up their presence in the American market. They have two models coming to the U.S., the new Apreamare 48 Americas, and the redesigned Maestro 68 Americas. They have also announced the opening of two new Apreamare “Boutiques” in the States—one in Newport, Rhode Island, which will be run by Tom Sulentic (current owner of Newport Yacht Sales), and one in New York City, that will be run by Michael Landsberg (former president of Vicem Yachts USA). The new Apreamare Boutiques are being designed to offer the highest level of customer service to their buyers.
