This year’s global launch of the sensational new M55 and S55 luxury motor yachts by Australia’s Maritimo has struck a chord with boat buyers in The Americas with double digit sales recorded sight unseen.
Maritimo President – The Americas, Dave Northrop, said this sales surge was sure to increase in intensity with the upcoming Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show and a program of private VIP showings when the first M55 and S55’s hit American shores.
“With Covid-19 there have been some shipping challenges, but I am pleased to say that in the past two weeks four new Maritimo’s have departed Australia for the USA, all pre-sold,” he said.
“We are eagerly awaiting the Fort Lauderdale launch of the new 55’s and there are another four vessels scheduled to be shipped from Australia in the next 30 days.
“Our display at Fort Lauderdale will include the new M55 and S55’s.
“Having achieved double digit sales on these two new models without one of them arriving in the US we anticipate a massive response at the show and after our program of private VIP showings.
Northrop said the USA forward order book is at a record high with American’s embracing the advanced, design, engineering and styling that has emerged from Maritimo in the past year.
“The demand for Maritimo motor yachts in this hemisphere is unprecedented,” he said.
Maritimo’s lead designer, Tom Barry-Cotter, said the company is on track for a total of eight new model reveals or launches this calendar year.
