Maritimo Americas’ President Dave Northrop has been visiting the company’s Gold Coast manufacturing plant, inspecting several boats in production bound for the Americas, including this year’s new 2020 edition Maritimo M64 and M70 flybridge motor yachts.
“This year’s Seattle Boat Show holds special significance for us as it will be the event where we formally launch our new factory direct Seattle sales office and marketing centre, which was established late in 2019, and we will also have three boats on display, which is our largest presence in Seattle ever,” he said.
“The north west of America is the home to the second largest number of Maritimo’s in one location worldwide and is where way back in 2006 we sold the very first Maritimo enclosed flybridge motor yacht in that area. There are more than 100 resident Maritimo owners in the north west of the USA. Maritimo’s are virtually purpose built for that environment with their climate controlled flybridges, with superior comfort and vision, they provide perfect functionality for boating in the region.”
The Maritimo’s on display will include a new M59, M51 and pre-owned M58 recently taken as a trade by an owner upgrading to an M64.
Northrop said the factory direct facility in Seattle and the factory trained and employed professionals representing the brand provided a great sense of comfort for existing owners and prospective buyers.
“By having dedicated factory direct facility and team, our owners can be better serviced by staff who specialize in our brand and product” he said. “Seattle is a market we invest great focus into, and with what I have gathered from my latest factory visit, our new and future product and design will continue to focus on functional boating for regions such as the Pacific North West.”
The Seattle Boat Show runs from January 24 to February 1, 2020.
