Quick Group acquires Yachting Marine Service

Quick Group has acquired Florida based Yachting Marine Service (YMS), to act as a key service hub for the Group.

YMS was founded more than 35 years ago and has grown to become a leading service centre for superyachts and for key yachting brands.

The YMS team has worked closely with Quick USA to provide scheduled maintenance and establish service contracts with American dealers and shipyards.

“The acquisition of Yachting Marine Service is a fantastic step forward for Quick Group, not only in bolstering our presence in the US but also in developing a holistic end-to-end offering for customers by further building a comprehensive service component in our portfolio,” says Marco Santoro, MD of Quick USA. “Furthermore, we are pleased to announce that Lorenzo Turdo, co-founder of YMS, will be staying on as head of the service team, bringing an additional level of expertise and an invaluable contribution in delivering first-class technical support for our products.”

Lorenzo Turdo, co-founder of YMS, added.“YMS stands out for providing high-value-added services in the maritime sector.

“The expertise of our highly trained technicians enables Quick to offer comprehensive and personalised support to customers.

“We look forward with optimism to this new chapter and continuous growth, anticipating tangible benefits both for our organisation and for the Group customers.”

Quick designs, engineers and manufactures a wide range of products including thrusters, stabilisation and motion control systems, water heaters, anchoring systems, lighting, deck equipment, furniture, ladders, and gangways.

The acquisition follows that of Sanguineti Chiavari, Nemo Industrie, and Xenta Systems in 2023.

The Group sees the US as one of the largest and most important boating markets in the world and says it is committed to developing a major investment plan to expand its commercial success locally.
