U.K. builder Pearl Yachts has named NextWave Yachting, a Hong Kong-based yacht services and brokerage company as its new dealer. The company said in a statement that NextWave will be its exclusive dealer in Hong Kong.

“The Asian market is a world of opportunity for yachting, and particularly for high-quality superyachts such as the yachts in our fleet,” said Iain Smallridge, Pearl Yachts managing director, in the statement. “NextWave Yachting and their experienced team of yachting professionals are perfectly attuned to the Asian yachting market, and we can think of no better representative in Hong Kong, for the Pearl Yachts brand.”

“Our dedication to fulfilling commitments and seeking the best value for our customers is the soul of our business, and that’s why we are excited to partner with Pearl Yachts,” said Howard Chen, NextWave sales director, in the statement. “We do not just sell boats and related products. We represent a passion in the ocean — and Pearl Yachts is absolutely synonymous with just that.”
