GLOBAL MARITIMO OUTREACH CONTINUES

Maritimo finishes 2017 riding the wave of another successful year of increased brand awareness internationally, and as part of that ongoing crusade it has purchased the commercial property adjoining its current head quarters on the Gold Coast to enable future expansion.

The homegrown company has expanded from its Coomera Marine Precinct across the globe in its 15-year history with a network of 44 dealer partners in more than 17 countries.

CEO Garth Corbitt said that global expansion was ongoing and the company would continue to market approximately half of the vessels it produced internationally.

He said to cater for that growth Maritimo had purchased a 3.09 hectare site at 9 McPhail Road which borders the existing fiberglass factory’s shed and that would enable it to build more vessels in the years ahead. The combined total site area now including 15 Waterways Drive and the new McPhail Road site is 4.664 hectares.

“This year we have enjoyed record success in Europe and in the USA, and our reach is extending into areas such as South East Asia, South America and Canada” he said. “Word is spreading that the Maritimo brand spells quality, design and style, functionality and above all sea keeping ability.”

“Most overseas residents look at Australia as being somewhat isolated and in a rugged part of the world with a dramatic and sometimes challenging coastline. They consciously, and sometimes sub-consciously, link  that environmental picture in their minds to the product that we provide and have proved can handle the toughest conditions.”

Corbitt said the success that Maritimo racing was having both at home and abroad was also a key point of difference for the brand with the race bred technology inherent in the luxury cruiser range having a powerful impact on prospective buyers.

“With the new property purchase our total manufacturing plant under roof is now 9314 square metres excluding office space,” he said. “Our growth plans are tied to both national and international markets and continually pushing the brand into new areas. We have come a long way in 15 years, but there is much more to do.”
