Azimut Yachts is partnering with Indonesian tycoon group H Marine International to create Azimut Yachts Indonesia.

Azimut signed a dealership contract with a group of 10 Indonesian tycoons in the industrial and manufacturing sectors, luxury car distribution and property development.

The group is led by Hengky Setiawan, owner of a large telecommunications company in Indonesia and developer of the high-end H Island, and Nurtjahya Tanudisastro, a company leader at Electronic Home Appliances.

H Marine International will be the exclusive dealer in the region.

A permanent showroom will open soon in North Jakarta. A grand opening will be held in H Island in May.

“[This is] an agreement that took months to be finalized, but it represents a great result and it is part of Azimut’s development strategy, aimed at reinforcing the world’s largest distributor network,” Azimut Yachts sales director Marco Valle said in a statement. “With our wide range of models [and] the strength of the Azimut brand, together with the cooperation of such a strong partner, we are confident that it will be a great success.”
