To meet increased international demand, Swedish Agapi Boating AB has entered into a production agreement with Delphia Yachts Kot Sp, one of Europe’s most renowned boat producers, for the complete series of Agapi boats to begin in Q3 of 2014.
Agapi is a Swedish boat company making waves worldwide with a family of award-winning boats that combine the outstanding features of RIB boats with the best of traditional family and performance cruisers. Innovation in design, engineering and production has enabled Agapi to conquer new waters with boats that offer both the freedom of the sea and boating which is worry-free. Agapi Boating was awarded “Rookie of the Year 2010” for innovation with focus on environment within boating and in 2013 Agapi 750 was awarded the "Boat of the Year - Peoples Choice" in Sweden. The New Agapi 950 is to be launched in 2014.
Delphia is one of Europe's largest boat producers with a yearly production of over 1200 boats. Alongside Delphia, their own brand, they build for brands like Uttern and Quicksilver, owned by the Brunnswick Group.
"We see Delphia as the perfect long term partner to build our boats as they have a proven, unique track record of both delivering excellent quality and high volumes. We need greater volumes paired with continuous premium quality to meet increasing multi market demand and a partner to not only build our revolutionary boats but also jointly develop the complete series. Delphia's 25 years of experience, current production capacity and ambition to become one of the key shipyards in Europe makes them our ideal partner." says Peder Asplund, CEO of Agapi Boating AB.
Piotr Kot, owner and CEO of Delphia Yachts adds "Agapi fits into our production and growth plans as we believe their kind of boats and complete boat ownership solutions will become more and more common. Agapi is moving in the same direction as the car industry by focusing on design, weight and fuel efficiency without compromising performance and we're looking forward to building and developing their boats. Also, we're hoping for both higher volumes and interesting synergies with our other projects."
