David Schwedel; new owner of legendary Uniesse luxury motor yacht company
Italian motor yacht company Uniesse Marine S.P.A. comes to Miami under the leadership of SMB investor David Schwedel. Longtime Uniesse representative Rafael Barca will serve as the company’s president. Barca has delivered more than 200 boats since introducing the luxury motor yacht line to the United States in 1994. Together, Schwedel and Barca bring 75 years of marine industry experience to Uniesse Marine Group LLC.
With Uniesse’s new ownership comes a plan to redesign the Uniesse line, developing entirely new models in time for the 2019 boat show season. Ranging from 49 to 115 feet, Uniesse’s semicustom yachts are known around the world for their craftsmanship and quality. Uniesse yachts will be designed in America, and continue to be manufactured in Italy.
