Massive 2013 for Windcraft Group - 3 new offices

2013 has been a massive year of expansion for the Windcraft Group. The group which incorporates Team Windcraft, Yoti and eyachts has enjoyed a year of unprecedented growth and sales.

January 2013 saw the opening of a second Pittwater office at Church Point for eyachts and Yoti. Eyachts has continued to grow thanks to the high demand for the Greenline Hybrid and top end luxury yachts like Buizen and Solaris. It's also clear that Team Windcraft owners really appreciate having a specialist brokerage on Pittwater and Sydney Harbour.

In June the Group opened the new Team Windcraft office in Auckland. Over the past 10 years the Group have achieved good market share in New Zealand with 60 Hanse and Moody yachts now sailing the Islands’ shores. When long standing partner Tony Newmarch retired, the Windcraft Group felt it was the right time to open a dedicated office to support existing owners and offer the complete range of Windcraft Group products and services to New Zealand.

New Zealand brand manager Dominic Lowe brings 20 years of experience in the boating industry to the team and following huge success already, including 2 Dehler yacht sales, the New Zealand operation is moving to a new larger office in March.

In October the Windcraft Group’s Melbourne section moved to a new dedicated office in the Royal Brighton Yacht Club.

Nick Jones (who has nearly 10 years experience with the Windcraft Group) is the Melbourne branch manager. Nick has a wealth of technical and customer service experience and already knows most of the existing client base. With assistance from Roger Poulter, Nick is steadily building the new boat sales and brokerage sides of the business.

MD Peter Hrones explains the Windcraft Group vision

'The fact we’ve imported more than 300 Hanse Group boats over the past 15 years gives us unique experience and insight. Through adding Australia’s best brokerage, Yoti, and the niche portfolio eyachts to the Windcraft Group, we now bring our boating passion to the whole Australasian marketplace. We have true 360° market vision and a dedicated service centred staffed by industry experts. We can help any customer set sail in our boating community.

2014 is shaping up to be another exciting year for the Windcraft Group with SIBS seeing the debuts of the Solaris ONE 42, Greenline 48 and the Moody 54 Deck Saloon.

We also have some exciting new designs in the pipeline. There are some new bigger and smaller Hanse yachts on the way as well as an awesome new bigger Dehler following the huge success of the Dehler 38 this year.'
