Azimut appoints new dealer for Puerto Rico

September 5, 2022 GENERAL

Italian yacht manufacturer Azimut has appointed Wally Castro Marine as its dealer for the Puerto Rican market.

Wally Castro Marine has been among the leading boat retailers in Puerto Rico since it was founded 15 years ago. Azimut says this new strategic partnership is a ‘result of Azimut’s ongoing initiative to provide customers across the globe with the best possible experience.’

It’s said the first fibreglass boat in Puerto Rico was sold by the Castro family. Wally Castro Marine, named after the firm’s president Wally Castro, now represents major and exclusive boat and yachts in Puerto Rico. It also has a previously-owned department and offers brokerage services for all boat brands, as well as offering service, repairs and maintenance.

“We are extremely excited about this new collaboration in Puerto Rico,” says Federico Ferrante, President of Azimut-Benetti Americas. “Wally Castro Marine and Azimut-Benetti Group share the same DNA: both family businesses, driven by passion, and focused solely on the experience for their customers. Through these strong values, both companies are leaders in their respective fields, already.”

The Puerto Rican market hosts a lively nautical industry and rich boating culture naturally, as a tropical paradise with marinas on every coast and accessible neighbouring islands.

“We feel beyond excited and proud to welcome Azimut to our family,” says Wally Castro, president of Wally Castro Marine. “The brand shares our values and commitment to quality, luxury, and excellence. We now feel complete as we can offer our customers an exclusive line of mega yachts up to over 100ft, so the Caribbean can be enjoyed with the Italian splendour.”
