MARITIMO SALES ECLIPSE PRE – GFC RECORD LEVELS

Luxury motor yacht manufacturer, Maritimo, has had its most successful boat show in a decade at this weekend’s Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show with sales in excess of its all time record of $37 million prior to the GFC.

The sales rush in the past four days puts Maritimo ahead of  the $37 million record on the last day of the show and that figure  is set to increase further as deals are finalised over coming days.

Maritimo CEO Garth Corbitt said sales had been made across the entire range of the company’s models with the X60 luxury sports yacht and the S70 and M70 motor yachts attracting big interest. There were multiple X60 sales following its world premiere on Thursday.

“We have dealer partners here from New Zealand, Monaco, Thailand, China  and the USA as well as from throughout Australia and the atmosphere is simply electric,” he said. “The world premiere of the X60 sports yacht has drawn huge attention to Maritimo and sales have just flowed throughout the whole show.”

“We have numerous factory tours planned for the coming week with prospective buyers and I’m confident that our total sales from the show will move even further ahead”

Corbitt said the result was good news for the Gold Coast economy overall with hundreds of jobs now further supported by forward orders. Maritimo’s forward order book now stretches out to the end of 2019.

“To say we are thrilled is somewhat of an understatement and the result vindicates all the hard work, planning and innovation that we have undertaken to make out product world class,” he said.
