Acquera Yachting acquires G&K Yachting

Italian yacht agency Acquera Yachting has announced its acquisition of Greek yacht agents G&K Yachting, just three months after taking over Spanish company Evolution Yacht Agents.

In April 2018, the two companies signed a preliminary agreement for Acquera Yachting to acquire 100 per cent of G&K Yachting’s agency division. The acquisition investment strengthens Acquera Yachting’s growing presence across the Mediterranean, which now covers Greece, Turkey and Albania in addition to Italy, France, Monaco, Montenegro and more recently Spain. The new development reinforces the company’s desire to become a major player in the yacht agency sector.

Stefano Tositti, Acquera Yachting CEO, said, “Since our inception, our mission has been to embrace a truly customer-driven approach. With the addition of G&K Yachting to our group, and during this fast-paced stage of growth we will continue to deliver the highest level of service that is foremost driven by and for our clients.”

Georgios Mourkakos, director and co-founder of G&K Yachting, commented, “We are elated to be joining forces with Acquera Yachting and Evolution Yacht Agents. The acquisition is a clear endorsement of our vision to craft a global team of yachting experts that allows captains to rest assured that they will receive the same level of excellence wherever they are around the world.

“We are very much looking forward to working together to deliver the best customer journey possible.”

Kostas Skiathitis, director and co-founder of G&K Yachting, added, “G&K Yachting was established with the mission to offer high value services to captains and crew with intelligent support and technical expertise in the Mediterranean and beyond. Merging with Acquera Yachting and Evolution Yacht Agents, allows us to continue this mission, and equally as important our culture and principles.”

Nicola Parolin, who has advised the group and Tositti from the outset, played a key role in executing the agreement.
