Having recently made inroads into the American market, The Italian Sea Group is establishing a physical presence stateside. With the brokerage firm FGI Yacht Group, The Italian Sea Group Hamptons location is both a sales office and showroom.
FGI Yacht Group is run by Frank Grzeszcak Sr. His decades of experience in yachting span selling new-build Westships (Westports in the 1990s) to numerous brokerage superyachts. He established FGI Yacht Group in 2020. Along with his son and company vice president Frank Grzeszcak Jr., he and the team became the U.S. representative for Admiral and Tecnomar. FGI Yacht Group represents the brands throughout the Americas, too.
The Italian Sea Group Hamptons presence is in East Hampton. Visitors will get to see a handful of scale models of some of the most significant yachts and megayachts from the Group thus far. Among them, for instance, is the Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63. This limited-edition sport-yacht series draws inspiration from the Sián FKP 37, the first Lamborghini hybrid super sports car. Lightweight carbon-composite construction permits the yacht to hit a reported 60 knots at max speed. The Italian Sea Group says it’s getting a lot of interest from American clients for this series.
Additionally on hand is a model of the Admiral Galileo megayacht under construction (above). Perhaps not coincidentally, this 262-footer (80-meter) is for an American client, which FGI Yacht Group represents. Contract signing took place last December. The shipyard’s Centro Stile is responsible for both styling and naval architecture. That styling, with eye-catching lines flowing fore to aft along the superstructure, ensure she’ll stand out in any harbor. Twelve people in the owners’ party and 28 crewmembers will have accommodations.
The Italian Sea Group Hamptons presence is notably different than any other superyacht builders’ American footprint. It’s different for yet another reason as well. “We are proud to be the only superyacht broker in East Hampton,” notes Frank Grzeszcak Jr.
Giovanni Costantino, The Italian Sea Group’s founder and CEO, adds, “The opening of this showroom allows us to present our brands in a key location in the world of American luxury.”
