Rodriquez Yachts enters the U.S. market

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – European yacht builder Rodriquez Yachts has signed an exclusive agreement with South Florida-based BRB Yachts that will bring Rodriquez’s designs to the United States for the first time, the companies reported in a statement yesterday.

According to Daniel Berrebi, the owner and president of BRB Yachts, Miami’s position as a gateway to international business and tourism makes the city an obvious spot for BRB’s outreach to yacht aficionados.

Despite an economy that is showing signs of leveling off, and in the face of rising fuel costs, statistics show that high-end consumers continue to see Miami as a leader in luxury trends, the companies stated.

“With its classic Italian style and advanced, military technology, a Rodriquez yacht is the perfect blend of old world and new world — it’s like combining Da Vinci with Bill Gates,” said Berrebi.

Rodriquez Cantieri Navali (RCN), the parent company of Rodriquez Yachts, was founded in 1887 as a small ship repair yard. From four shipyards in Italy and one in Brazil, RCN has built over 550 vessels in the last 40 years including high specification military vessels, fast ferries and luxury yachts.

“The integration of Rodriquez’s production facilities and its research, engineering and development centers means that the best and latest technology is immediately available for production on every model,” said Berrebi. “Unlike other luxury yacht brands, the high-end amenities available on a Rodriquez yacht are standard features provided at no additional cost.”

Rodriquez yachts range from 50 to 220 feet, and the models available to American consumers are the 500 Sport, 600 Sport, 600 Widebody, 800 Widebody and 800 Sport, which are customizable.
