GFY IS A TIARA DEALER FOR ALL OF ITALY, TOY MARINE FOR SARDINIA, FRANCHINI FOR SARDINIA and the Tyrrhenian High, Montecarlo Yachts for all of Italy, except for the Adriatic Sea and Sea Force IX. Furthermore, it offers brokerage and yacht charters for any boat type and size. The company, which is headed by Consuelo Valerio, distinguishes itself for the quality of services it offers, the assistance it guarantees its clients and the high expertise of its staff. The charter activities have always been the spearhead of the company, and also for the current season they once again confirm they are sold-out. This proves, on the one hand, that the industry is starting to get back on the right track, and on the other, it shows that Given For Yachting is now reaping what it had sown in the past.
The common areas are one of the strengths of every LS model and allow guests
Among the brands it represents on the Italian territory, one highlight is the recent return of Tiara Yachts, the American shipyard that has already gained a stronghold in our seas thanks to the high quality of its vessels, with models in the Open, Coupè, LS, LX, and LE series, from 39 to 53 feet. The Tiara Yachts models are available in versions with inboard and outboard engines, particularly remarkable in the latter version is the Tiara Yachts 48 LS equipped with three 7.6 litre Mercury Verado V12 engines of 600 hp each which can push this elegant yacht beyond a top speed of 50 knots and guarantee a range of 320 miles at more than 33 knots. A highly interesting vessel due to its equipment, fittings and performance, as well as excellent manoeuvrability at all speeds thanks to the electronic engine handling system which allows even a novice to berth in full safety.
Below deck, there are sleeping accommodations for four people and a private bathroom.
Given For Yachting is also engaged daily in an important and consolidated activity of intermediation in the charter industry, with yachts of more than 80m up to boats for day cruises, all carefully selected by the company’s staff which also takes care of the paperwork and makes sure that clients can enjoy their boating holiday without complications. Sailboats or motor one, classic or modern, the offers available at Given For Yachting are highly diverse, but the company’s strong point is no doubt the service it offers to direct the client towards the most appropriate solution for him to enjoy a holiday in full relaxation.
In addition to these activities, the company also does brokerage for the purchase and sale of second-hand yachts and boats. This is another activity entrusted to long-term collaborators and managed to increase customer loyalty thanks to their satisfaction with the mediation service. All-round yachting one might say, new, second-hand, charter and all services related to yachting, managed by a team operating 365 days a year.
The 48 Luxury Sport is the largest outboard engine model that Tiara Yachts has ever built.
The 48 LS is equipped with 3 Mercury Verado V12 outboard engines of 600 hp each, and are combined with the Tiara Yachts integrated electronic package including the Garmin Marine navigation system.
