SURGING NEW ZEALAND ECONOMY BOOSTS BOAT SALES

The booming New Zealand economy bodes extremely well for the success of the upcoming Auckland International Boat Show starting on September 29, according to one of New Zealand’s leading boat dealers.

Don Senior, who runs the Motor Yacht Centre in Auckland and is one of the new Maritimo partner dealers in NZ, said there is a lot more enquiry for boats generally as a result of the economic conditions.

“Fair to say the New Zealand economy is running at its best for many years and that has translated into a lot more enquiry so we expect the Auckland show to be a good one,” he said.

“The Maritimo range of cruising motor yachts is perfectly suited to our boat conditions and the brand is becoming more widely recognised around the world and particularly here in NZ. “We had a television program on here recently which featured a Maritimo in Malta so we are certainly reaching some far flung places around the globe.”

Senior said Maritimo ‘s reputation Maritimo and the sea worthiness of the Maritimo range were key selling points in New Zealand.

He cited walk around decks, internal flybridge access, side door options and top quality finishes as other attractions for prospective buyers.

“Our customers like the Maritimo purchase plan which enables them to put down 10 percent and then settle when their vessel is finished and they also like the fact that they can customise their craft so it is suited to their specific individual needs.”

Maritimo Australian and New Zealand sales manager, Ormonde Britton, said the company would be displaying four boats at the Auckland show, the M48, M50, M58 and M61.

Maritimo is represented by three highly respected dealer partners in New Zealand, Don Senior, Alistair Hool and Bruce McGill.

“All three of our dealer partners are highly respected in New Zealand and they bring a level of local knowledge and networking to the Maritimo team that is invaluable,” said Britton.

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.
