Australian motoryacht manufacturer Maritimo launched a new waterfront facility at The Marine Village Sanctuary Cove, where the company said it will showcase about $10 million in vessels at any given time.

Maritimo Sanctuary Cove will become the company's main sales and marketing hub on the Gold Coast.

The facility features a working replica of the galley from a Maritimo M70 cruising motoryacht and timbers that are used to finish off the company’s range of vessels.

"The new center at Sanctuary Cove raises the bar for Maritimo in terms of how we display our model range and will give prospective purchasers an unrivaled experience of the brand and what we offer," international sales and marketing manager Greg Haines said in a statement.

"The timbers and fabrics we use are all highlighted, and there's state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment showcasing Maritimo's complete range,” Haines said. “We will also be using the facility in conjunction with brand partners such as Miele to host celebrity chef cooking demonstrations and interactive master classes for our customers.

"Miele Ambassadors include celebrities like Maggie Beer and Shannon Bennet. Other events involving brand partners such as Maserati and various selected high-end brands will be held at the center to broaden awareness and knowledge of the Maritimo range of vessels.”

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