What does our Agri Plus have in common with a powerful, 15-metre luxury yacht? The answer is water.
The water in the Land of a Thousand Lakes, otherwise known as Masuria in northeast Poland, which we mentioned in a previous article. We return to the Masurian Lake District to tell you about another story, that of brothers Piotr and Wojciech Kot, owners of the largest shipyard for luxury yachts in Poland. The story of the Kot brothers begins in Olecko, a small town in Masuria, where they own a carpentry workshop and the family farm. Honing the talents for farming, business and boating that they share with most inhabitants of Masuria, Wojciech and Piotr started building small kayaks in 1990, before progressing to bigger and more complex vessels. Today their company Delphia Yachts is the largest builder of leisure boats in Poland, capable of producing over 150 units per year, ranging from small sailboats for training purposes, to large, 15-metre transoceanic yachts and luxury 300-hp motor cabin cruisers. The brand has largely forged its reputation on the construction quality, comfort, durability and excellent performance of its products, features shared with our Agri-Plus, one of which was purchased by Wojciech for use on the brothers’ estate in Biała Olecka, on the shores of Lake Białe just north of Olecko.
