The Italian Sea Group announces the new brand Franck Muller Yachts



This is a project born from the encounter of two strong and visionary personalities: Mr. Giovanni Costantino, Chairman of The Italian Sea Group, one of the world’s premium yachting Groups, and Mr. Vartan Sirmakes, owner and co-founder of Franck Muller, one of the world’s most famous and prestigious watch makers.
 
The Master of watch complications meets the Master of yachting. From this union, which shares philosophy, vision, method and thinking, 'Franck Muller Yachts' has come into the world.
 
This partnership blends the high-end luxury watch & yachting worlds, to create a unique product, where details are well recognizable and the highest quality becomes the regular standard.
 
The very first jewel of this new vision is the “Franck Muller 55”, an outstanding and innovative yacht being currently build and will be officially unveiled during the Monaco Yacht Show in September 2015. Other bigger models will follow soon, up to 100 feet.
 
The 'Franck Muller Yachts' premiere launch event takes place at The Italian Sea Group headquarter of Carrara-Italy on the 27th March 2015 together with yacht owners and international press.
 
The project will be unveiled in the all-new The Italian Sea Group & Franck Muller gallery which is dedicated to passionate people about yachts and luxury watches.
 
A perfect blend of Franck Muller cutting edge technique and The Italian Sea Group obsession for quality. The two worlds, which seem far away from each other, share the same passion for quality, innovation and attention to details.
 
The Italian Sea Group has built up a brand new hangar of about 7000sqm to host the Franck Muller Yachts production which is elegantly inserted in 100000sqm facility.
 
The new hangar is also enriched by ‘atelier', a classy showroom where clients, supported by the shipyard's design team, will be able to carefully select each single material to be used on board, for a unique experience. Building a Franck Muller Yacht will be like creating a tailored suit.
