Maritimo Yachts adds three U.S. dealers

Builder signed new dealership agreements with Galati Yacht Sales, Hampton Yacht Group and Sandy Hook Yacht Sales in New Jersey.

The Yacht & Brokerage Show in Miami Beach marked Australian boatbuilder Maritimo Yachts’ expansion in the North American market with new dealership agreements involving Galati Yacht Sales, Hampton Yacht Group and Sandy Hook Yacht Sales in New Jersey.

“Joe Galati has a very strong business in the USA and a lot of his clients over many years are being exposed to the Maritimo range for the first time as a result of his involvement,” Maritimo sales and marketing manager Greg Haines said in a statement.

“Galati Yacht Sales have an extensive network in the USA and we are finding that their clients are warming to a cruising option that provides luxury, quality, livability and performance with the ability to be a fish boat without being purely a hard-core fish vessel, which many of the American boats are,” he said. “Maritimo gives them the perfect blend of both, so the family is happy and comfortable and the skipper who loves to fish still has the ability do to some serious fishing without compromising.”

Success at the Miami show in February has Maritimo keenly anticipating the results from the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show later this year, where it will have the largest on-water boat show display in the company’s history.

The display includes four Maritimo models, two of which are new to the United States. The M48 and M65 will be making their debuts. A Maritimo owners and supporters tour is being organized to coincide with the Fort Lauderdale show and the Key West World Championship offshore powerboat race the week afterward.

“It will be a fantastic tour for owners, supporters or just people who love their boating,” he said.
