MOU between Visun Group and Nautica Italiana

Last month, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed between China Visun Group and the Italian Boat Industry body, Nautica Italiana, at the Versilia Rendezvous in Viareggio with the aim to promote small and medium-sized companies at the China Rendez-vous 2018.

Visun will support Italian Nautical members who will present themselves at the next China Rendez-vous and in turn, Nautica Italiana will promote their members at the event thereby creating a link with Versilia Rendezvous.

Nautica Italiana groups over 100 brands with an annual business of around 1.8 billion with exceptional focus on ‘Made in Italy’ and representing Italian culture, style and design with nautical exports.

What is Célophi ?  A new yachting and lifestyle platform

The Visun Group introduced Célophi at the Versilia Rendezvous, a new initiative that offers an ‘online-offline’ commercial platform for products, services and yachting lifestyle.

The aim is to create business opportunities and synergies within the Chinese market for Italian yachting companies, with China representing 15.4% of Italian nautical exports (stat:  Lamberto Tacoli, NI).

The online platform will offer an unparalleled range of luxury life solutions ranging from yacht and yacht interior products to luxury goods and a high-end lifestyle management service.  As well, a multi-brand offline space will be located at Visun Yacht Club in Sanya with a VIP Lounge.

Chen Yuntao, Vice President of Visun Group, says, “We are witnessing a new era for yachts and sailing to new adventures.  The partnership between Nautica Italiana and the new lifestyle platform for Visun will promote the nautical sector to a level of excellence for Italy and China.”
