Leading Australian motor yacht manufacturer Maritimo has engaged one of the most successful and experienced boating sector operatives in Spain, Eric Zobel, to head up Maritimo Europe’s sales network.

Zobel previously worked with company founder Bill Barry-Cotter, representing him in Europe previously over 20 years ago.

Maritimo currently exports approximately 50 percent of its production capacity to international customers and Zobel’s appointment to boost international marketing efforts comes at a time when Maritimo is enjoying tremendous success with its latest new models.

Eric Zobel aligned himself with the Maritimo brand because of their internationally acknowledged performance, seakeeping ability, quality of construction and factory support, saying Maritimo was one of few brands with a diverse range of models that uniquely fit the needs of boaters looking to use their vessel for long range cruising and adventuring.

Maritimo’s European sales network is now based from Eric Zobel’s International Yachts Dealer SL, based at the Marina of Aiguadolc in the town of Sitges which is 15 minutes from the Barcelona International Airport.
