Motor yacht manufacturer, Maritimo, has opened a new waterfront sales and marketing hub at The Marine Village Sanctuary Cove in Queensland.

The new premises will be used to showcase its range of models, there are 10 berths, as well as provide prospective purchases an opportunity to experience all aspects of the luxury brand.

The centre will also feature a complete working replica of the Maritimo M70 galley that will showcase the range of timbers the company has available for use across its model range.

Maritimo’s International Sales and Marketing Manager, Greg Haines, said the new centre raised the bar for boat manufacturer in terms of how it displayed its model range.

“It will also give prospective purchasers an unrivalled experience of the brand and what we offer,” Mr Haines said.

“The timbers and fabrics we use are all highlighted and there’s state of the art audio visual equipment showcasing Maritimo’s complete range.”

He said brand partners like Miele would also use the facility to host celebrity chef cooking demonstrations and interactive master classes for Maritimo customers.

CEO Garth Corbitt said the creation of the Maritimo Sanctuary Cove centre was a continuation of the company’s corporate expansion strategy and stated goal to increase awareness of the brand globally.

“The Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show is a major event on the world boat show calendar and attracts people from around the globe so our new facility will position us front and centre at that important event and gives us a prime base to showcase our products throughout the rest of the year,” he said. “The position and the Sanctuary Cove brand makes it a perfect fit for us.”

The new showroom is a 133sqm facility overlooking the main marina at the Marine Village Sanctuary Cove. It will incorporate Maritimo dealership, BMS, which has relocated from Runaway Bay. It also includes work stations, a manager’s office, meeting room, samples boards and audio visual equipment.
