Saltee Rags buys Antibes Yachtwear in Fort Lauderdale

After 25 years at the helm of Antibes Yachtwear in Fort Lauderdale, John and Kathy Phillips sold the business to Lena Rossello and David Marchand, owners of Saltee Rags Crew Apparel, in mid-September.

The two businesses will remain separate companies, according to Marchand.

“Nothing will change, Antibes will be Antibes,” he said. “We are just merging the back end. Richard [Gruender] is staying with us. He has been at Antibes for 21 years, with more than 30 years in the industry.” 

Renovations are underway at the nearly 1,000-square-foot office and workshop in Fort Lauderdale. Updates will include a showroom for soft goods and yachtwear, as well as a captain and chief stew lounge with printers, couches, and a small galley.

“Remember when there used to be captains’ lounges?” Marchand said. “We’re bringing that back. A place where they can come to do interviews, print resumes, relax, have downtime with wine and cappuccino. And we’ll have yoga on the weekends. I think it will bring people into the shop.”

Also included in the deal is Dolphin Embroidery, Antibes Yachtwear’s in-house embroidery service.
