NEWS – Second dealer for Maritimo in WA


Australian luxury boatbuilder, Maritimo, has continued its retail expansion in Western Australia with the appointment of Yachts West as a second dealer in the region.

“The west is a vital market for us,” said Maritimo’s Peter Jenkins. “Chris Norman and his team at Yachts West will add great strength to our existing structure with Martin Box Marine.”

Yachts West dealer principal Chris Norman said he had already placed orders for two new Maritimos. “We are excited about the developments at Maritimo and I have ordered new 470 and 440 Offshore Convertibles,” he said.

“I think the 440 in particular is going to be a great boat for our market.

“Combining three cabins, an enclosed flybridge and internal staircase in a 44-foot boat is an awesome achievement,” he said.

Yachts West expects delivery of its new boats before the Mandurah Boat Show in October this year.

Norman said Yachts West would focus strongly on customer service. “We have a full sales and service organisation at Mews Road in Fremantle and I believe that providing quality after-sales support is going to make a significant difference in our market,” he said.

Maritimo said Norman is a qualified naval architect and worked with Austal Ships near Fremantle for 13 years, nine as sales director, before setting up Yachts West in 2005.

Yachts West is at 15 Mews Road, Fremantle. Phone (08) 9335 7788.
