The new distribution deal sees superyacht and megayacht support specialist VSS supply Rapid Marine’s full range of on-deck stowage equipment to yacht owners and crew in Italy.

Based in Plymouth, UK, Rapid Marine designs and develops accessories for tender and jet ski owners to safely lift, stow or secure their toys on the yacht, including its Rapid Padeyes and DAME-awarded Universal Chocks.

“Further expanding our market for marine accessories into Europe, we are delighted to announce our new distributor for Italy is Versilia Supply Service,” says Rapid Marine managing director Mike Evers (pictured top left).

“The new deal was put together by our sales manager Neal Phillips (pictured right) following a successful METSTRADE show for Rapid Marine last November, with two large pallets of goods already on their way to Italy from our warehouse in Plymouth.

“VSS’s drive to provide exceptional service and cutting-edge trends to the superyacht market aligns with our mission to offer customers innovative solutions and seamless service throughout. We look forward to our partnership together.”

Rapid Marine’s European dealer network now includes Origin Marine in Spain, Premium Power Sport in Malta, and Belship in The Netherlands.

“We are proud to announce our strategic partnership with Rapid Marine as the official distributor,” says Giancarlo Di Vanni, technical sales director of the VSS Livorno office .”Since our inception, our mission has been to cultivate a corporate culture dedicated to excellence in the mega- and giga-yacht supply sector, with an unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction.

“Our goal is to provide comprehensive solutions tailored to every need, with logistics dedicated to ensuring the timely delivery of orders. We are confident that Rapid Marine shares the same high standards and that we will work together to deliver prompt and efficient service for our customers.”
