Staluppi Group is in Buy Mode
By Cliff Banks
John Staluppi has 12 dealerships (one more than last year) on this years Wards Dealer 500 ranking, spread throughout New York and Las Vegas.
Sales at John Staluppi New York stores were down slightly this year, although his Atlantic Automall dealership ranks 17th on this years Wards Dealer 500, strong enough to finish fifth in new vehicles sold, with 8,389 units.
Meanwhile, the Las Vegas dealerships, Planet Hyundai (154th) and Planet Nissan (204th), run by his son, John Staluppi Jr., both saw revenue rise in 2005 and should have a 10% increase in 2006, John Staluppi says.
But with business down in the Northeast, he says the group is cutting expenses and looking for new ways to advertise.
We really are starting to become more process-driven here, he says. We have a ways to go, but we are getting better. There are a lot of old-time people in the industry with a lot of bad habits.
As a result, John Staluppi and his company is looking to recruit the right kind of people, with the right attitude and work ethic and then train them on the new processes, he says.
One new process is developing and managing Internet leads, because that is less expensive than traditional advertising, John Staluppi says. We spend a lot of money on advertising, and that is one of the biggest areas we can do better on.
Ironically, John Staluppi is looking to add stores to help reduce his advertising expenses. He believes having more dealerships in the mix can provide deeper discounts.
We are in a buy mode right now, he says. We are trying to increase our business and are looking at markets where we can add three or four stores. I think we can get to 30 or 35 dealerships, up from the 22 we have now.
John Staluppi says he hopes to acquire some premier dealerships from brands such as Mercedes-Benz and BMW.
Meanwhile, the group is reducing the amount of inventory it keeps on hand to approximately 1,000 units a month, mainly because it paid more than $700,000 in floorplan interest in the years first quarter.
When asked if the increase in interest rates, coupled with the slight turndown in sales, concerns him, John Staluppi laughs. I was in this business when interest rates went to 21%, he says.
Quantum of Solace Yacht News
Motor Yacht Quantum of Solace
Quantum of Solace (formerly Alfa III) is a 52m (170.60ft) motor yacht, custom built in 2001 by Benetti. The yacht's interior has been designed by Zuretti and has exterior styling by Stefano Natucci. She was last refitted in 2009.

Yachts International Magazine
Story: Jamie Welch
THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH - MILLENNIUM 140'
John Staluppi said "I don't want to be a traditionalist because I've never been one --I want to make high-speed yachts." John Staluppi told me at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, where his boat received admiring praise from the public.
Although she's named after a fictional character, real government agents covet this high speed Millennium.
No kidding: a group of five U. S. military contractors interested in hull number two of the series were on board as we cruised up the Florida coast last fall with her captain, crew and Navel Architect Frank Mulder, the designer of the boat. Military intelligence -no oxymoron jokes please- was interested in the 140's Alustar hull speed, and made inquiries into building a second hull for drug smuggler rundowns in the islands.
Luckily for them, the government won't have to make the Faustian bargain that Frank Mulder had to make with regard to the design of the yacht- shaving the envelope as thin as possible to compensate for the marble and high glass burl walnut interior. They were interested in the stepped, deep-V Alustar hull-which was tank tested extensively and ranges in thickness from 12mm to 6mm-and the incredible turbine/waterjet propulsion package consisting of twin 5436-hp Paxman 18VP185 diesels employing twin Lipps wing jets with an award winning custom Renk gearbox for primary power and maneuvering; and twin 4600-hp Lycoming T40 turbines employing Lipps booster jets on a common, custom Allen gearbox. That's just over 20,000 horses if you do the math.
Due to unfavorable sea conditions our trip up the coast was planned as an --ahem--"slow" 45-knot cruise. Her initial sea trials in the North Sea last summer had already satisfied John Staluppi and Frank Mulder- The World is Not Enough had reached an incredible 66 knots at 90 percent power in cold water. Although we didn't see her opened up, for most of us onboard--excluding the very calm Captain Zak Matten and his wife and Chief Stew Vanessa; Designer Frank Mulder; John Staluppi; and Millennium project manager John Schmiemann--our ariel photography shoot had a tad bit of Bond-like suspense. Our hovering helicopter carrying photographer Billy Black was running low on fuel as we waited for an engine room ventilation hatch inspection by John Staluppi's engineer before captain Zak could engage the Lycoming turbines.
When the words "hatch is open," came over the pilothouse intercom I hailed our photographer in the chopper. Zak ever-so-gently awakened the horses in the engine room, and in seconds the Gulf Stream waters were filled with the sweet turbine sounds of a jet runway. On the flybridge I couldn't keep a toothy grin off my face, even when I noticed that our chopper pilot was finding it difficult to hover off the bow as the John Staluppi's Millennium hit 45 knots.So why build a 140' go-fast luxury yacht in this age of long range, fuel sipping expedition vessels? Ask John Staluppi, the yachting world's lone hero archetype, a man driven by imagination, pride, and--after 20 years in the luxury-go-fast-craze--endurance.
John Staluppi, a jovial, self-made millionaire owner from New York who is one of the most successful car dealers in America and who owns two business jets and a fleet of boats. John Staluppi started his career as an auto mechanic in Brooklyn, and at 16 was installing gas engines on his boss' runabouts. Eventually he started an auto dealership, made a small fortune and spent his free time in the Seventies and Eighties racing sportfishing yachts--beginning with a 40' Ocean--against his business partner and lifelong friend John Rosatti. The boat that put John Staluppi in the history books was the 143' Octopussy, a Frank Mulder design that broke the 50-knot barrier 18 years ago.
"In July of 1986, John Staluppi paid me a visit in Amsterdam," Frank Mulder said. "John Staluppi had already left me with a number of messages stating who John Staluppi was and what John Staluppi wanted to achieve with the turbine/waterjet propelled Octopussy: 50 knots. After a computer analysis I got back with John Staluppi and said that it was indeed possible."
Mulder designs went on to design seven more boats for John Staluppi, including the notable Goldeneye, Moonraker and Dillinger. Then in the mid-1990's John Staluppi started a new yacht company, Millennium Superyachts, which launched a line of 118' aluminum yachts built in Holland with sporty lines and elegant interiors. But there was a noticeable difference in the engine room.
"In 2000 I was coming back to Florida from the Bahamas on my Millennium 118', which was the 21 knot boat, and I realized that the trip was taking way too long." John Staluppi said. "Then I picked up an magazine and read an article about a 110' boat built for the king of Spain that reportedly went 67 knots, although it's never officially been clocked at that speed--some say she tops out at 61--and as I said, 'that's it.' I picked up the phone and called Frank Mulder right away and said, 'let's do it again.'"
The "it" of the conversation is the Millennium 140' The World is Not Enough, which will most likely elicit friendly challenges from European Kings and possibly compete in luxury yacht races. But ultimately--and indeed more importantly--John Staluppi has once again brought excitement to an otherwise stodgy industry with his vision and unmistakable personality. John Staluppi Said: "What is the definition of a luxury yacht?" To me it has to be at least 120' in overall length with a master and four guest state rooms, accommodations for six crew members and an on-board tender, and oh, one more thing-no teak; it adds weight, it's a pain to clean and the oil gets all over my carpeting. Like I tell my designer; 'no f--ing teak!'"
Although her power plant is awesome, The World is Not Enough is not only about performance. The fine interior, designed by John Staluppi's wife Jeanette and London based designer Evan Marshal, is just as luxurious as anything coming out of displacement yacht Dutch shipyards. The joinery is high gloss burl walnut with Nomex honeycomb coring, and soles are laser cut, cored marble.
"It's basically a European design and layout, but weight was a huge concern, and my experience designing aircraft helped out a lot, "Evan Marshall said. "Even though it had to be weight conscious, the interior still had to be comfortable, with no compromises in creature comforts. The trick is not to give it away that it's a lightweight, so when guests board at the dock they feel like it's a substantial displacement boat."
Styling stayed remarkably congruent with the interior design off the Millenniums, which Marshall first designed for John Staluppi in 1996. Accommodations are for ten guests in the main deck owner's suite plus five staterooms below. "John Staluppi wanted to introduce a 'wow' factor that reflects the high speed nature of the boat, but is very luxurious," Marshall said. "The main thing he wanted was a split master suite on the 118' and we've repeated that concept with the 140', so you could call it an evolution of the 118'. For the furnishings I went to Italy and Dubai with John Staluppi to find the right art work and decor items."
John Staluppi's, guests stepping through the stainless threshold from the aft deck, will be impressed with the saloon and dining room, which are separated by a wood credenza hiding a plasma TV. The beautiful marble sole in the dining room leads to the large entry foyer and circular staircase that descends to four guests suites below and spirals up to the skylounge. The commercial galley amidships on the main deck has it's own sidedeck entry and a comfortable breakfast nook. John Staluppi has set the crew accommodations between the pilothouse deck and the bow, and sleep eight in four luxurious staterooms.
The pilot house and skylounge deck, which has suites for the engineer and captain, are the most comfortable place to gather for the large group of admirers who were on our cruise up the gold coast. My favorite spot is in the skylounge with comfortable sofas, a 42" plasma TV and a glass topped, fully stocked bar.
Waiting for us at the dock in Riviera Beach was John Stallupi, who was obviously eager to get his boat over to the Bahamas where John Staluppi will be spending a well deserved vacation. As we went to press John Staluppi was still over in the Islands, enjoying his new yacht; John Staluppi most revolutionary to date. One thing will be certain: when John Staluppi decides to come back across the Gulf Stream this time John Staluppi won't have to worry about the trip taking too long.��
MILLENNIUM SUPER YACHTS can be said to have begun in the 1980s, when John Staluppi built a triad of powerful megayachts whose names conjure the essence of opulence and responsive speed - Octopussy, Moonraker, and Thunderball - the fastest super yachts in the world. All three inspired by the visionary - John Staluppi . Octopussy was built in the Netherlands, John Staluppi built Moonraker in Norway - both from plans drawn by the innovative Dutch naval architect Frank Mulder.
