Langkawi-based broker FLS Yachts services YYachts clients in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Philippines, Vietnam, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand
German shipyard YYachts has appointed two brokers to represent the company in Asia, and in the Australia and New Zealand markets.
YYachts’ new Asia representative is FLS Yachts. Based on the island of Langkawi in Malaysia, FLS Yachts is a dedicated yacht sales company servicing YYachts clients in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Philippines, Vietnam, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand. Owners Paul Jackson and Rob Williams have more than 50 years’ experience in the industry in yacht building, rigging, sailing, outfitting, and selling new and used boats.
FLS currently represents the Italian boat brand ALA Yachts in Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia. Last October, FLS was appointed to represent the Grand Soleil brand in Thailand.
Meanwhile, Eyachts is the exclusive dealer in Australia and New Zealand for leading European powerboats and sailing yachts. Managing director Peter Hrones has 30 years of experience in brokerage and new sales in the region’s yachting industry.
“I’m passionate about bringing innovative boat design to Australia and setting trends in the ‘down under’ market,” Hrones says.
YYachts is a German shipyard that builds carbon sailing yachts between 70 and 100 feet. The builder’s portfolio consists of the Y7, Y8 and Y9 models, while the custom division builds bespoke designs.
