YACHTSIGN, a leading custom designer and manufacturer of lighted letters specifically developed for the yachting industry, has announced the opening of a new office in Antibes, France.
Headquartered in Florida USA, the company has built a strong reputation for quality, service and innovative design, expanding over the past eight years with other facilities opened in Seattle, WA and Hamberge, Northern Germany. The Antibes office will extend the work of the company to one of the busiest superyacht areas of the Mediterranean confirming the company’s commitment to the global marine industry.
While Antibes will cover an area from Barcelona to Viareggio the company provides a worldwide installation service with in-house logo artwork design and a team of experienced installation engineers.
Bastian Kellner, Manager of the new YACHTSIGN Antibes office has been with the company for seven years and has a strong technical background with extensive product knowledge. Commenting on the new facility he said, “We have exceptional capabilities here at YACHTSIGN to achieve innovative and stunning boat names which greatly enhance the aesthetics of the yacht. The owner of the 50 meter Westport 164, ANNASTAR approached us having been unsuccessful in her attempts to achieve the style of lettering needed with other companies. The design, a superb eye catching custom styling, required us to build letters in a way that had not been achieved for any yacht application previously. These new letters were tested and prototyped for the owner who was delighted with the results and our ability to meet the complex brief. We have now created a new product line based on this unique process which we have called the ANNASTAR setup and will be seen at our Antibes office which will open in late September”.
YACHTSIGN can be seen at the Monaco Yacht Show on Darse Sud QS22 and at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show and Genoa Boat Show in October.
