RECORD MARITIMO SALES AT AUCKLAND SHOW
Demand driven by Maritimo’s new X-Series sports yachts and design upgrades to the M-Series Flybridge Motor Yacht range resulted in more than $10 million in contracts at the Auckland On Water Boat Show.
The X60 Sport Yacht, which premiered in May, and the X50 Sport Yacht, scheduled for world premiere in 2019, were the highlights of the Maritimo display, with both models generating multiple sales.
Maritimo’s lead designer, Tom Barry-Cotter, says the X50 is proving popular for its spaces and options, made possible by the X-Series aft cabin design.
The X60 featured at Auckland had travelled from Australia to New Zealand under its own power, a less expensive and more exciting delivery option than the more usual shipping delivery.
“Seeing a Maritimo complete a voyage like that builds confidence in the brand and is a clear demonstration of the sea-worthiness of our vessels,” says Barry-Cotter.
The Auckland sales follow highly successful sales results at the Sydney and Sanctuary Cove boat shows earlier in the year.
