MIAMI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#MotorYacht–Uniesse Marine Group, LLC, a Miami-based luxury motor yacht company,
announced the acquisition of the assets of Uniesse Marine S.P.A. of
Italy. Terms of the transaction are not disclosed.
Uniesse is at the upper echelon of the world’s leading semi-custom
luxury motor yacht brands, with more than 500 yachts sold around the
world for over a quarter-century. The acquisition was led by Miami based
SMB Investor, David Schwedel. The company will be operated by both David
Schwedel and Rafael Barca.
“Uniesse is known throughout the world as a preeminent semi-custom
luxury motor yacht brand,” said David Schwedel, Executive Director. “We
are excited to present a newly designed line of luxury motor yachts from
49’ – 115’.”
Both Barca and Schwedel have hands-on experience with Uniesse for more
than 15 years, and more than 75 years of combined experience in the
marine industry. Rafael Barca originally introduced the Uniesse line to
the United States in 1994, and was responsible for delivering more than
200 Uniesse motor yachts during that time.
“I only know of perhaps one or two other brands that can compare to
Uniesse in terms of craftsmanship and quality,” said Mr. Barca,
President for Uniesse Marine Group, LLC. “Uniesse will continue to be
designed in America, and manufactured in Italy under our direction.”
The company is in the process of redesigning the entire Uniesse line of
motor yachts. “We are excited to introduce new models in the coming
years, with our first `reveal’ to come in time for the 2019 Boat Show
season,” said Barca.
“We have streamlined operations, consolidated the manufacturing process,
and are implementing technology applications which will dramatically
enhance the owner/operator experience,” said Mr. Schwedel. “Customer
service will be completely revamped as our top priority going forward.”
