Mark Cavendish, Sales Director for Benetti Yachts, recently announced the appointment of the Fraser Yachts Worldwide San Diego office as the exclusive Benetti broker for the West Coast of the United States and British Columbia.
The Azimut-Benetti Group, based in Italy, is the largest luxury yacht builder in the world. Benetti Yachts, founded in 1873, specializes in building semi-custom yachts from 100 to 145’ and steel and aluminum custom yachts ranging from 50 to 70 meters plus. Fraser Yachts California Benetti Agency will represent the entire line of the new motor yachts including the latest Benetti yacht, the 82’ Legend series.
“Ideal for the West Coast market area, the Benetti yachts are ocean going vessels that offer good economical range with most of their models,” commented Sales Broker Neal Esterly of Fraser Yachts San Diego. Esterly, a part of the Fraser team since 1992, is responsible for establishing the new agency for the U.S. West Coast and Canada. He will represent the new motor yacht product line as well as assist the entire Fraser Yachts Worldwide sales team with all Benetti-related yacht sales and service matters.

As a special offer to clients, Fraser Yachts will be offering its yacht management services free for the first year to clients who purchase a new Benetti yacht.
