Maritimo reputation spreading internationally

Australian luxury cruiser manufacturer, Maritimo, is riding an international wave of popularity with boaties from Dubai to Cannes and Washington USA being won over to the tough, high performing Aussie marquee.

Maritimo Sales and Marketing Manager Greg Haines is currently on an international three week tour promoting the company and its range of luxury cruising motoryachts.

His first stop was Dubai in the United Arab Emirates where he met with dealers from the Gulf area.

From there Mr Haines went to the Cannes International Boat Show where the award winning, full-beam master suite Maritimo 58 Cruising Motoryacht was on display.

“The Cannes show is one of the most prestigious in the world and vessels on display range from tenders to super yachts,” he said. “We had four dealers in attendance from various regions in the South of France and we also had discussions with dealers in Italy, Germany, Russia, Greece and Turkey.

“In that market environment,style and the luxury of finishes is a big thing and the Maritimo 58 cruising motor yacht was given a big thumbs up by all those who inspected the vessel.”

He said while in Cannes,Maritimo partnered with Dihn Van Paris, fine jewellery creators, and Infinity 8 Champagne, and held two cruising events for VIP guests. “Once prospective buyers get onboard and see the level of quality and luxury they are Maritimo converts,” he said.

Mr Haines said the company was currently in negotiations with several parties interested in the M50 and M58 after the Cannes Show.

Following the Cannes event he travelled to Roche Harbour Washington, where leading USA dealer Hampton Yacht Group coordinated a “cruise-in-company” Muster involving fifteen Maritimo owners.

“Robert Fiala and his team at Hampton lead by Bill King are legendary in organizing these events and their customers love getting involved in some of their epic adventures,” he said.

“The scenery in this part of the world being close to the Canadian and USA border is spectacular and the range of Maritimo vessels that are based here revel in the conditions.” The fully enclosed, heated flybridge is a hit with people cruising in these cooler climates, it means they are able to boat all year round. In other boat brands, without Maritimo’s fully enclosed flybridge, they are generally restricted to the warmer months.

Mr Haines said in both UAE, Europe and the USA Maritimo was gaining a reputation for being a world class marquee with a standard of luxury and finish up with the best of the best.

“Where we then win out is in the area of fuel efficiency and performance and the Aussie toughness and sea keeping ability of our range is a significant magnet for these buyers,” he said.

“Between UAE, Cannes and now Washington we will generate significant business to add to our already healthy production pipeline.”

The company is currently working on an M65 Cruising Motoryacht which will be launched later this year.
