The Italian boating scene welcomes a new important partnership: Solemar and Continental Marine have entered into an agreement for a new specialized service center in Sardinia.
Continental Marine, a renowned boatyard based in Aglientu, near Santa Teresa di Gallura, offers a wide range of services: from shipbuilding to the storage of motor and sailing boats, from resin-coating to electrical installations, from accessories installation to engine maintenance. The agreement signed with Solemar, a renowned Italian brand specializing in inflatable boats, further expands the range of brands of Continental Marine (which already includes Scanner Marine, Honda, Rio Yachts, Poly Form and Scout Boats) and aims to offer technical and after-sales assistance to boat owners in Sardinia.
“Our partnership with Solemar is a source of great pride: it is the Italian brand that in our opinion represents excellence in the segment of cabin cruiser inflatables– says Ugo Soldi, owner of Continental Marine – Our long experience with Solemar, testified by the 12 inflatables in our production – enables us to offer a complete and high-quality assistance service to owners of this iconic brand as well as to anyone needing us in Sardinia”.
Ugo Soldi, a former Navy motor petty officer with a 30-year experience in the boating industry, has been managing since the late 1990s the shipyard, which raises on a surface of 1,200 covered and 2,000 uncovered meters where boats up to 50 feet find shelter.
The Solemar brand, born in the 1980s, experienced a rebirth in 2022 with its acquisition by a group of businessmen from Bergamo. Solemar Italia has invested in major improvements, including new molds, innovative designs and a highly skilled team. The operational headquarters are located in Nembro, in the province of Bergamo. At this year’s Genoa International Boat Show the shipyard premiered three new models in the SX line: from 27, 30, and 34 feet, achieving huge success.
“We are thrilled to partner with Continental Marine, a highly competent boatyard – said Arianna Milesi, Marketing Director of Solemar Italy – This agreement will ensure reliable technical and after sales support for Solemar owners while strengthening the brand’s presence, in Italy and specifically in Sardinia.”
The partnership between Solemar and Continental Marine once again underscores the importance of the synergy between boatyards and boat manufacturers in offering a comprehensive and quality service to boat owners. This agreement also promises to open up new perspectives in the boating industry by offering Solemar owners a valuable service point in Sardinia, one of the most popular summer destinations.
