Maritimo sits with world leaders at Fort Lauderdale

One of the largest boat shows in the world, The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, where some of the latest and most stunning vessels ever made are on display is expected to be kind to Australian luxury cruiser manufacturer, Maritimo.

The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show runs between 31 October to 4 November.

Maritimo’s sales and marketing manager, Greg Haines, said the company had the M 58 cruising motoryacht on display along with the M45 and the M50.

'We have already taken orders on two S58 cruisers, one in Australia and one in the USA, and we haven’t even formally launched the boat as yet so we are quietly confident,' he said.

'We saw continued positivity in Cannes in September and I think that we will see that level of renewed enthusiasm spill over into Fort Lauderdale.'

Maritimo’s USA President Dave Northrop said after a ‘long dry spell’ the industry in the USA is improving and many people who have held off upgrading their boat or even purchasing a vessel at all are now back looking and active.

'We have invested a lot of time and effort into R and D during the last few years and there’s no doubt in my mind that this is paying off,' he said.

'The full beam master suites in the new generation Maritimo’s are an absolute hit and we think the M58 will continue to see its popularity increase with more sales this year at Fort Lauderdale.'

Mr Haines said Maritimo’s sea keeping abilities and the fuel efficiency of its vessels compared to the competition were big draw cards for buyers.

'They know in the States that we build our boats Aussie tough and they know they can perform in heavy seas and they now see the levels of comfort and the fit outs are at a five star level so it’s a winning package,' he said. 'We are quietly confident.'
