“This is an important milestone in Italia Yachts international expansion strategy and reinforces our status as the leading sailboat manufacturer in Italy,” said Bill Leonard, Operations Director of Italia Yachts U.S.A. “A physical presence in the U.S. will better enable us to service existing customers while penetrating new markets hungry for the unique blend of design, performance and luxury that our vessels provide.”

A back-to-back winner in the 2015 and 2016 ORC World Championships and awarded “Best Boat 2016” as seen in SAIL and Cruising World, Italia Yachts was founded in 2011 to fill the increasing market gap between Mediterranean high-performance boats and more traditional Nordic cruisers. Today, Italia Yachts provides a broad product range of sport performance and blue water cruising sailboats that offer ease of operation with exhilarating performance, suitable for offshore racing.

Italia Yachts U.S.A. will provide local service, and sales support through its Milford, CT office along with a satellite operation located in South Florida, managed by Bill Leonard. For additional information, visit
