Azimut Benetti, manufacturer of production, semi-custom and full custom motor yachts, announced the appointment of d’Albora Marine as exclusive Azimut dealer for Australia.
D’Albora Marine is part of the D’Albora Marinas group, which has 10 marinas, full service boat yards and dry-stack boat storage facilities located throughout Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.
Azimut Yachts CEO Marco Valle commented, “our number one priority globally is customer service and satisfaction. We have always considered Australia to be one of the highest potential markets in the Asia-Pacific region: d’Albora, with its large in-house marina and customer support network, is the best possible partner for us to succeed in such a demanding market.
We are pleased that D’Albora’s market-leading offering and experienced team will now be there to support current and new Azimut owners.”
D’Albora Marine is headed by Matt Walford, who has over 15 years’ experience in the marine industry. He has worked with numerous luxury motor yacht brands in Australia and previously held the position of Business Development Manager with leading national shipbuilder Austal. He is also joined by a team of sales brokers and customer service staff with long term industry experience.
“We’re delighted about this partnership. Azimut has a revolutionary new product range which we look forward to introducing to the Australian market, starting with the new model Azimut Atlantis 45 arriving later this year.
“At the same time we are excited about connecting with the large number of existing owners to see how we can support their immediate requirements,” he said.
In a statement, Azimut Yachts commented: “On behalf of the entire team, would like to express its gratitude to 5 Star Motor Cruisers, which supported the brand’s sales in Australia in recent years.”
