CORTO MALTESE will inspire OLYMPIC RIBS’ OLR line customization.
Aegean archipelago. The Med. The World. A literary myth, from the pen of Hugo Pratt, and a product line celebrating passion for sea, travel, freedom and speed. Bringing the spirit of the iconic sailor onboard, OLYMPIC RIBS has announced a long-term, global partnership with CONG S.A., Switzerland, the guardians of the CORTO MALTESE eminent heritage.
Unleashing the full potential of bespoke customization for luxury RIBs, this synergy will allow for a uniquely creative incorporation of the CORTO MALTESE traits into the OLR line up.
Gearing up in H1 2023, the CORTO MALTESE upgrade will be available for the OLR 30SR, 45SRC and 45SRC STERN DRIVES models, elevating the OLR model of choice to an exclusive asset: First Class onboard experience, outstanding offshore performance and – now – inclusive of the mesmerizing atmosphere of the classiest graphic novel ever written.
This deal has been driven by FMC S.A. and Maurizio Distefano Licensing, the agency managing the CORTO MALTESE rights in Italy.
Commenting on the OLYMPIC RIBS x CORTO MALTESE partnership, Christos Karyofyllis, OLYMPIC RIBS Director, stated: “Always ready to defend the principles of liberty and independence, CORTO MALTESE personifies indefatigable exploration; a perfect match for our DNA. We are excited to embrace the CORTO MALTESE philosophy and open new seaways together”.
Maurizio Distefano, president of Maurizio Distefano Licensing added: “When a brand and a licensee share the same values, a licensing project can truly write history. This makes us extremely eager to see the outcome of this pioneering and one-of-a-kind partnership between OLYMPIC RIBS and CORTO MALTESE“.
