Leading Australian luxury motor yacht manufacturer, Maritimo, has continued to expand its reach in the Americas with yet another appointment of a major marine brokerage business as a dealer partner, the third in recent weeks.

Maritimo Americas' President, Dave Northrop, said he was delighted to have Chesapeake Yacht Center, Baltimore, join the Maritimo network saying the exclusive 'white glove concierge dealer' had raised the bar in terms of customer service, promoting a high quality boating lifestyle and going the extra yards for clients.

Established in 2010 CYC is owned and operated by partners Josh White and Ryan Dobb and it is one of the largest dealerships in the mid-Atlantic and one of the most successful and respected in the USA.

"Josh's links to boating go back to his great grandfather Bronza Parks who is a legend in the Chesapeake Bay area," said Northrop.

"After decades on the water with his great grandfather and then his mother and father Josh has salt water flowing through his veins and when the opportunity arose in (insert year) he established CYC with Maryland local Ryan Dobb he jumped at it.

"The firm has a solid reputation for exemplary customer service and professionalism and we are sure the Maritimo brand and awareness will be greatly enhanced as a result of their involvement."

The appointment of CYC as a dealer partner is the latest move in Maritimo's establishment of a network of highly professional and experienced representatives of the brand in the Americas.

Josh White said CYC was delighted to be joining forces with Maritimo to represent the brand in the Chesapeake Bay area. "Our business is based on doing things differently and providing a better boat ownership experience for our customers and this ethos fits perfectly with the Maritimo team," he said.

"The opportunity to become involved with Maritimo is exciting and we are confident strong sales will result as more boaters became aware of the brand and its various models."

Northrop said the climate controlled flybridge motor yachts will resonate well with boaters in the Chesapeake Bay area and the exciting new X range, which has changed the world of sport yachts internationally, should also prove extremely popular.

Maritimo's CEO, Garth Corbitt, said the appointment of CYC added yet another layer to Maritimo's international outreach.

"Our markets in Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia are firing and we are committed to increasing our reach in the Americas and also in Europe," he said.

"Forward orders now stretch out to 2020 and we have embarked on a major employment drive seeking to increase our current workforce by approximately 30 percent to help us meet the demand for our vessels.

"Maritimo's reputation internationally is gaining momentum and the Americas is an exciting market for us to be active in."

Northrop said Maritimo's build quality and sea worthiness, being designed to handle some of the most challenging ocean conditions in the world around Australia, resonated strongly with US boaters.

"We are extremely excited about Maritimo's future here and the appointment of top flight operators such as CYC will add to our momentum," he said.

"It is fair to say that the response from our customers to the revolutionary X60 sport yacht and the new generation of flybridge motor yachts has been over whelming and with professionals like Josh and Ryan and their team helping us increase the awareness of the brand globally the future looks extremely bright."

The CYC appointment follows closely on the heels of the appointment of B & E Marine and Colony Marine by Maritimo.
