Australia's leading luxury motor yacht manufacturer, Maritimo, has strengthened its dealer sales and marketing network in the Americas with the appointment of respected marine industry identity Michael Swift to the company's USA Company Sales team.

Michael joins a team of professional sales people in a network that spans all of the USA and Canada. The Maritimo company sales team comprises five other professionals working from company offices in Michigan, Florida and California.

Maritimo America's President, Dave Northrop, said the appointment of Michael Swift was great news for Maritimo in the Americas.

"Mike brings more than 27 years of retail sales experience in the sector and 20 years experience in marina management to our operation," he said.

"In addition in the past decade he has represented a variety of respected brands as a new boat dealer."

Michael said he was delighted to be joining the Maritimo team. "Maritimo is a world leading luxury motor yacht brand with its DNA deeply set in Aussie toughness, superb seakeeping ability, race bred performance and superior design," he said.

"We are excited to be expanding awareness of the brand on this side of the world.

"While there are countless makes, models and challenges to finding and maintaining a yacht for someone that suits them perfectly, that challenge is precisely the reason we enjoy helping long-term and potential clients."

Northrop said over the years Michael had received many accolades from manufacturers and clients alike. "Mike is an avid boater and outdoorsman and the Maritimo team looks forward to working with him to expand our reach in the Americas," he said.

Maritimo's Australian based CEO, Garth Corbitt, said the appointment of Swift and his team was very positive. "Mike will join with Dave and the others in that market place helping us reach our global strategic roll out targets and we are thrilled to have him involved."
