News: J Craft’s US debut at the Miami Yacht and brokerage show

February 16, 2011 by JCRAFT

J Craft, the Swedish luxury powerboat manufacturer will make their US debut when they display their luxurious 40ft motor cruiser, the Torpdeo at the Miami Yacht and Brokerage show between the 17th and the 21st February, 2011.

The J Craft Torpedo has proved popular with consumers in the European market over the last 12 months, particularly in places like Monaco and St Tropez. The company retailed a number of boats in the final quarter of 2010 and already has a number of forward orders for new hulls in 2011.

J Craft is now preparing to enter the US market where it hopes to repeat this success.

J Craft’s Johan Attvik, speaking ahead of the show, said, “With under a month to go before the start of the show, we’re very excited. We have been speaking to a number of potential customers, opinion formers and members of the press and the reaction we have received so far has been very positive. The J Craft Torpedo is a very stylish, luxurious and capable vessel and we believe that American buyers will appreciate the boats combination of classic looks and contemporary power.”

The Yacht and Brokerage Show in Miami Beach will transform Collins Avenue into a multi-million dollar presentation of the world’s most glamorous and uniquely designed yachts and J Craft will join other world leading boat manufacturers at the show
