EKKA Yachts, Sanlorenzo’s brand representative in Greece, is delighted to announce the sale of two 32m+ Sanlorenzo units: a 36.92-metre SL120 Asymmetric (hull number 814), which is due to be delivered in April 2023, and a 32.2-metre SL106A (hull number 808) slated for delivery in March 2023. Since becoming dealers for the Italian builder, EKKA Yachts has secured a total of six orders for Sanlorenzo, representing a total of 87 million euros in just nine months.
With the contracts signed in September 2021 and March 2022 respectively, the sales of these vessels follow hot on the heels of two earlier 32m+ successes for EKKA Yachts which were announced last summer: the sale of a Sanlorenzo 500EXP and a 44Alloy, solidifying the fruitful partnership between the two brands.
Greece ranks third after the US and Russia for the highest number of owners of yachts 40m+
Furthermore, these sales act as testament to a growing trend within the yachting industry: an uptick in activity from Greece-based owners, with an increasing trend in ownership demand for larger vessels. Notably, according to recently-released statistics, Greece ranks third after the US and Russia for the highest number of owners of yachts over 40 metres.
As Managing Director of EKKA Yachts, Dimitris Kyriazakos, explains: “Greece is a destination to watch out for in yachting in the coming months and years. All of our Sanlorenzo yachts were sold to highly experienced and knowledgeable yachtsmen who knew exactly what they wanted from their vessels, and this is a growing clientele base.”
A total of six orders in less than a year.
Kyriazakos continues: “At EKKA Yachts we are delighted that we have secured a total of six orders since becoming Sanlorenzo’s brand representative in Greece, representing a total of 87 million euros in just nine months and with deliveries split evenly between 2022 and 2023. This has really helped us solidify our position within the superyacht market. The results for us and the yard have so far exceeded our expectations and we are very excited to see what the future holds.”
