The Yacht Sales Co now represents Maritimo in Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand and Hong Kong
The Yacht Sales Co now represents Maritimo in Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand and Hong Kong. The dealer has also confirmed it will be opening a new sales facility in Hong Kong later this year.
The appointment is a significant step in The Yacht Sales Co’s growth in the Asia Pacific region, with numerous sales centres now established in Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific and in multiple locations across Southeast Asia, including the boating hubs of Phuket in Thailand and Sentosa in Singapore.
The Yacht Sales Co CEO, Mark Elkington, says the team is honoured by the appointment and looks forward to assisting Maritimo with its development and future growth in the region.
“We are extremely proud to represent this iconic Australian brand that was founded by industry legend Bill Barry-Cotter and now has his legacy being continued by Tom Barry-Cotter and his team,” Elkington says.
“With our expansive sales network and absolute commitment to delivering outstanding client service, we are confident The Yacht Sales Co will be instrumental in Maritimo’s future success in Southeast Asia.
“Maritimo is a vanguard of Australian boat building and design, continually evolving their designs to produce high-quality, offshore luxury motor yachts, and we look forward to helping buyers in Southeast Asia discover the many attributes of this leading brand,” he adds.
Maritimo’s global business development manager Derrick Nowak says the shipyard selected The Yacht Sales Co because of its ‘extensive sales network and outstanding service reputation.’
“The Yacht Sales Co is best positioned to support clients anywhere in the region to the degree they expect and deserve, and to the level that is Maritimo,” Nowak says.
Maritimo managing director Tom Barry-Cotter says the new partnership is a fitting way to launch the brand’s 20th-anniversary celebrations.
“We are excited to know that Maritimo owners will have a consistent experience with The Yacht Sales Co across the region. No matter whether they live in Hong Kong or Singapore and then keep their Maritimo in Thailand, The Yacht Sales Co is the right choice as they have a huge database of clientele to view our range of unique, handcrafted, long-range motor yachts,” says Barry-Cotter.
The Yacht Sales Co is well-established in the region, having enjoyed a long-standing presence with sister company, Multihull Solutions. In addition to Maritimo in Southeast Asia, the company represents a discerning selection of the world’s premier brands, including Fountaine Pajot sail and motor yachts, Dufour Yachts, Cora Cat, Absolute Yachts, Neel and Leen Trimarans and Tesoro Yachts.
Mark Elkington says there is ‘exciting potential’ for Maritimo’s growth in Southeast Asia with strong demand for larger luxury motor yachts that are leading in design, have numerous engine options and deliver safe, outstanding blue-water performance.
“The Yacht Sales Co has a comprehensive strategy to develop this premier Australian brand in the region, and we look forward to helping new and existing clients discover what makes Maritimo so special,” Elkington says.
“As part of this strategy, we are increasing our presence in Southeast Asia, opening larger new sales centre in Sentosa, Singapore, as well as Ocean Marina in Thailand.
“We will also be opening a new sales facility in Hong Kong later this year, resulting in a total of seven sales centres in the region that are dedicated to helping clients realise their boating dreams and provide a new standard in after-sales service,” he says.
The Yacht Sales Co has significantly expanded its client service team accordingly with the appointment of Nicolich ‘Boby’ Noman as Southeast Asia service manager and Jim Poulson as the region’s Maritimo brand manager.
Maritimo offers luxury motor yachts in three distinctive ranges: the M-Series Flybridge, the S-Series Sedan and the new Offshore Series.
