Fora Marine RM Yachts (France) taken over by Grand Large Yachting

Founded in 2003 by Xavier Desmarest and Stéphan Constance, Grand Large Yachting is the fourth largest French yacht builder. Over the years, the group has taken over and developed 4 emblematic yachting brands (Allures Yachting, Garcia Yachts, Outremer, Gunboat) as well as a professional brand, Alumarine. 

Stephan Constance, President of the Grand Large Yachting Group, declared on the occasion of the takeover of RM Fora Marine: "We are very happy and enthusiastic that RM is joining the group. RM is a unique yachting brand in France, with strong assets, original technology and a culture of innovation. The RM1180's Sailboat of the Year award for 2020 is clear proof of this. Our ambition is to continue to work around the "RM DNA" and to capitalize on 30 years of history, bringing our know-how in terms of production and international sales. »

"Our short-term priority is to contact all customers who have placed an RM order and to restart production. At Grand Large, we tend to consider that "The relationship is not limited to sales". This is a philosophy that I intend to apply to RM. "says Luca Tessitore, RM's new Managing Director.

This may be legal vis-à-vis the court, but when the option is to lose 150,000 euros on a boat or pay 80,000 more, it is a scam. This says a lot about the "privateer" spirit of the new bosses of RM Yachts. Notice to mariners who are thinking of buying an RM, an Alliage or a Garcia. Customers are not the priority for this company. Who can entrust the savings of their life to unscrupulous people?
