MARITIMO EXTENDS ITS REACH IN THE AMERICAS WITH NEW APPOINTMENT

Leading Australian luxury motor yacht manufacturer, Maritimo, has expanded its reach in the Americas with Colony Marine, one of the largest dealers in The Great Lakes, being appointed as a dealer partner.

Maritimo Americas’ President, Dave Northrop, said he was delighted to have Colony Marine join the Maritimo network saying the third generation business, established in 1958, was one of the most successful and respected in the USA.

“Colony Marine and the Beauregard family have an excellent reputation for professionalism, customer service, dedication and boating knowledge,” he said. “The firm has represented some of the biggest and most successful brands in the country and we are sure the Maritimo brand and awareness will be greatly enhanced as a result of their involvement.”

Colony Marine’s President/Owner Pete Beauregard said the opportunity to become involved with Maritimo was exciting and he was confident strong sales would result as more boaters became aware of the brand and its various models.

“The climate controlled flybridge motor yachts will resonate well with boaters in our area and the exciting new X range, which has changed the world of sport yachts internationally, will also prove popular I am sure,” he said. “The X series with the X60 and X50 now revealed and other models to follow will do very well.”

Maritimo’s CEO, Garth Corbitt, said the appointment of Colony Marine added yet another layer to Maritimo’s international outreach.

“Our markets in Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia are firing and we are committed to increasing our reach in the Americas and also in Europe,” he said. “Forward orders now stretch out to 2020 and we have embarked on a major employment drive seeking to increase our current workforce by approximately 30 percent, to help us meet the demand for our vessels”

“Maritimo’s reputation internationally is gaining momentum and the Americas is an exciting market for us to be active in. We have been actively rolling out a strategy to appoint the very best dealer partners possible throughout the Americas and the appointment of  Colony Marine is a significant step forward in that process.”

Northrop said Maritimo’s build quality and sea worthiness, being designed to handle some of the most challenging ocean conditions in the world around Australia, resonated strongly with US boaters.

“We are extremely excited about Maritimo’s future here and the appointment of top flight operators such as Colony Marine will add to our momentum,” he said.

Our Maritimo experience is certainly wrapped up in the new M75 . We will go further afield as there is heaps of fuel on board, and the modern aesthetic is wonderful. We love what Maritimo has done with all of the spaces on board.
