Key developments included additional investment in the BV80 project, expansion of the sales team, and development of a dedicated superyacht division.

Van Beers, commented on the plans, “We have already made significant progress in all of these areas. In particular, I am delighted to announce the appointment of Joris Neven as Director of Sales, Mega Yachts.”
