Groupe Beneteau acquires Delphia Yachts

Groupe Beneteau has acquired the Polish shipyard Delphia Yachts.

Groupe Beneteau’s Polish subsidiary Ostroda Yachts now holds a majority 80% stake in the company, while Delphia retains 20%.

The acquisition of the yard, which specialises in producing yachts measuring between seven and 15 metres in length, was formalised on November 30. The acquisition agreement was previously set out on July 12.

Delphia Yachts will now join Groupe Beneteau’s burgeoning portfolio, which also includes superyacht yard Monte Carlo Yachts, Beneteau, Jeanneau, Lagoon and Prestige.

Chief executive Hervé Gastinel said in a statement: “To support its development on the strategic segment for outboard motorboats and small sailing yachts, Groupe Beneteau will be able to capitalize on Delphia Yachts’ industrial capacity and expertise. This acquisition is in line with our long-term strategy for sustainable and profitable growth.”

A statement from the owners of Delphia shipyard added: “As co-owners of a newly established company, we look at our joint future with happiness and optimism. We trust it will ensure a continued stable growth of both the Delphia Yachts boatyards and its sales partners, increasing further the stability of employment and allowing even greater development opportunities to its current and future employees.”
