The Uniesse 70 MY is the latest from this prolific Italian yacht builder that has become known worldwide in just 15 years. The 70 is built at the Uniesse yard near Viareggio on the coast of Tuscany but, when you look at the equipment list, you might mistake this for an American-built yacht-Onan gensets, Sony stereos and Raymarine instruments. Uniesse has set up its own factory dealership in Ft. Lauderdale, which serves as a sales office as well as a hub for all warranty, service and parts issues. As Uniesse's vice president Rafael Barca pointed out, it's more effective and more cost-efficient for him to send factory-trained service personnel to the boat, regardless of where it is located, than to rely on local dealers or boatyards to handle the work. "In the end," says Barca, "it's also best for our customer's satisfaction."
