Exclusive - SBM Maritimo sizzles
Trade-a-Boat recently tucked in, tested the plush bunks, and joined in the celebrations at the new Maritimo dealership, SBM Maritimo, at The Spit in Sydney.
Principal Steve Batton staged a mini boat show in his own inimitable style, with all the new Maritimos from the 47 Sports Cabriolet and Offshore Convertible — which he customised with an opening rear awning window and an additional hull window — to the new 53 Motor Yacht.
There were sea trials, sausage sizzles, champagne and some amazing feeding of come of the biggest bream this writer has ever seen.
The cutting-edge boat dealership is now awaiting the arrival of a bar built from the back half of one of the big Maritimo cruisers.
Home to a clique of marine dealers, The Spit has now evolved into something of a boatique where you can stroll the foreshores, grab lunch, feed the fish, and buy a new or second-hand luxury cruiser or yacht. Perfect for your next lazy day ashore.
SBM Maritimo is located at Suite 1, Smith's Boat Shed, The Spit, 81 Parriwi Road, Mosman, NSW, 2088.
