At the Derecktor Shipyard in Florida, the manufacturer of electric stabilizers CMC Marine have met their American dealer network.
Florida played host to the fourth event dedicated to training and refreshers sessions for the CMC Marine distribution and assistance network, organized for the first time by CMC Marine USA. The event was designed as a training seminar held at the Derecktor Shipyard service center in Dania Beach, Fort Lauderdale, officially certifying their entry into CMC Marine’s network. Derecktor Shipyard was established in the State of New York in 1947 and has four operating sites in the United States. The company’s shipyards have been used by many mega yachts, Coast Guard vessels and America’s Cup boats.
The whole range
The training seminar was attended by many American dealers and numerous participants from various areas of the world, including Dominican Republic and New Zealand.
The working sessions tackled a range of issues and included presentations of the products offered by the Italian company, including the Stabilis, Dualis and Directa ranges, to the more recent Waveless line of compact stabilizers, the smallest of which is just 38 centimeters in diameter.
The United States has always been a key market for CMC, because many of the yachts fitted with the company’s systems have American owners. That is why an independent, yet Italian-owned unit was set up two years ago in the US.
Founded in 2005 and based in Pisa, CMC Marine is a long-established manufacturer of stabilization systems, rudders and bow thrusters for yachts and passenger ships over 16 meters in length. The Company also holds patents related to their products and control software.
