About De Antonio Yachts
De Antonio Yachts was born in 2012 from the passion of its founders, Marc de Antonio and Stan Chmielewski, for the sea and design, with the interest to innovate by creating boats with simple and avant-garde lines. Ten years later it has become a worldwide reference shipyard with production centers in Poland and Spain.
By offering the market new solutions, such as innovative concealed outboard engines for all models and applying concepts that improve efficiency, ease of use and performance, De Antonio Yachts has become a benchmark in the yachting sector.
As a result, the company has expanded internationally, with presence in the five continents and with a wide network of exclusive distributors, thanks to the range of its 8 models of different lengths, which have achieved 3 nominations and 1 award for European Motor Boat of the Year, along with other nominations and recognitions such as BOB awards or FAD awards.
All this work has positioned them as the Spanish shipyard with more projection in addition to consolidating their international success thanks to their latest launches, such as the D50 Open, their flagship.
One of their latest collaborations has been with Cupra, with whom they have developed a version that combines an outboard combustion engine with two electric motors, recently presented under the name of De Antonio Yachts-Cupra D28 Formentor e-Hybrid.
Two production centers, Poland and Spain
The production of its eight models is distributed between its production centers in Spain and Poland, totaling more than 10,000 m2 and a team of more than 300 people.
In Poland they have recently expanded their production capacity, with new facilities for the production of their largest model, the D50 Open and its new variant, the D50 Coupé, which will be presented in January at the Düsseldorf Motor Show.
Following the launch of its new models, De Antonio Yachts is working on new vessels for 2023, which will be announced later in the year.
Steady growth during a decade of success
De Antonio Yachts has been growing and consolidating its presence in the national and international market, with 60% of its boats being exported. The company closed 2021 with the delivery of 65 units, representing a 45% growth in turnover over the previous year. This progression is maintained for this 2022, with 75 units sold, 90 units confirmed for 2023 and 50% of production already booked for 2024.
