ISA opens US office

ADVERTISEMENT

Italian builder ISA (International Shipyards Ancona) has launched its North American operations by opening an office in Ft. Lauderdale. The office on Southeast 17th Street Causeway celebrated the company’s 12th anniversary in May.



The company named Edward R. Sacks as president of North American operations. Sacks has had a long-term friendship with Marcello Maggi, ISA’s president of sales and marketing.



“While ISA already has a presence in North America, my task is to increase their visibility in the U.S. marketplace by interfacing with the brokerage community and facilitating ease of communication with the shipyard,” Sacks said. “To be clear, I am not a broker. My objective is not to sell boats, but to assist established brokers with their efforts in selling ISA construction.”



ISA has delivered 27 yachts and has five under construction. It builds both in fiberglass and steel in the 30-70m range. The company is developing new lines with an eye toward expansion to eventually build yachts up to 100m.
