Numarine International expands distribution network


With the launch of Numarine North America, Numarine International said it is establishing three points of distribution to manage an extensive service network for the owners of Numarine luxury performance motoryachts along the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, as well as the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean.

Numarine North America will launch at the Oct. 30-Nov. 3 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, featuring a 78 Flybridge.

Numarine International is a dedicated division for the management of international sales, marketing and expansion of the worldwide dealer network for Numarine, which is based in Istanbul, Turkey.

“North America is an important component to our expansion worldwide, yet we didn’t want to go the route of large multiline yacht brokers,” Numarine International managing director Ian Birdsall said in a statement.

“Our boats incorporate so many advanced construction techniques that it is imperative that the people selling them have a firsthand knowledge of the significant advantages we offer. So we chose to work only with seasoned independent veterans who trained at our factory to understand what makes a Numarine such a compelling option in today’s world.

“Our North American team is small, yet highly competent, with access to a vast network of service providers. So whenever a Numarine owner requires service or repair, regardless of where the boat is located or who originally sold the boat, we just take care of it. It’s that simple.”

Numarine North America will be managed by Parker Stair, a marine industry veteran that the company said has a strong track record of perpetuating success among high-end brands.
