News - Back Cove Awards Emarine Australia

American boatbuilder, Back Cove Yachts, has recognised Emarine Australia’s dedication to and success with its brand throughout Australasia with an achievement award.

Back Cove explained that it has built 370 of its Downeast-styled motoryachts to date, of which Emarine Australia has sold 22.

Back Cove Yachts vice president, marketing and sales, Bentley Collins said Emarine Australia’s contribution to the marque’s export business was exceptional.

“Emarine Australia and, in particular, Jed Elderkin’s devoted effort on Back Cove’s behalf has been outstanding,” said Collins.

“While the actual sales percentage of around six per cent may not seem huge, in the export business if you add up two or three ‘six per cents’, you have a very good export segment.

“It’s our goal at Back Cove to export 20 per cent of our production, so Jed has contributed more than his fair share of that goal,” he said.

Further to Emarine Australia’s excellent sales performance, Back Cove said the achievement award also recognises Elderkin’s reputation for superior after-sales service, his closeness with his clients and his positive outlook… all of which, according to Collins, make him “a very good representative for our brand in Australia”.

Emarine Australia said it will soon take delivery of the new Back Cove 30 and will also deliver the first hull of Back Cove’s sister brand, Sabre Yachts, to its Australian owner before the end of the year.

To experience firsthand Back Cove motoryachts, visit Emarine Australia’s display on Cockle Bay Marina at the Sydney International Boat Show, 29 July to 2 August 2010.
