Turkish boat builders have for years been eating into the market dominated by Italian yards but now it seems one Italian company is fighting back.
Italian boatbuilder Sanlorenzo has tackled the situation head on by opening a new Brand Representative office in Turkey, at the Marinturk Istanbul City Port Marina.
Murat Bekiroğlu, the General Manager of the newly created Sanlorenzo Istanbul said, “Being in the marine business for more than 15 years has allowed me and my company to grow and to succeed. Today, I am very excited and happy to announce that we are already delivering our first Sanlorenzo motoryacht sold, into the Turkish market. She is a brand new SL72, Custom Build.”
