Joe Galati and Maritimo Brand Manager, Jay Dee Jackson of Galati Yacht Sales had the chance to tour the Maritimo Headquarters while in Australia last week. This is what Jay Dee had to say.
Wow, what an outstanding experience it was to participate in the Maritimo display in the 2015 Sydney International Boat Show this August. Maritimo truly stole the show with its 7 boat display including their newest models the M48, S48 and M65. Maritimo has race boat building deep in their blood so of course the Maritimo offshore race boat was in the middle of it all with racer Rossco Willaton starting and revving the powerful engines that could be heard across the entire harbor! If that wasn’t enough to get your attention Maritimo parked a brand new Maserati right at the front door of the display.
Joe Galati and I had the opportunity to see the 4 Maritimo boats Galati Yachts has ordered for stock. The M58 and M65 were the most complete and looked stunning. The M58 having the Teak wood interior and the M65 having the Wenge wood interior showing the very different but very exquisite options Maritimo has to offer. The M65 will turn some heads having a true king sized bed in the master along with a full beam head and an enclosed flybridge bigger than the salon of most other boats. We also had time to sea trial the M65 and M48 both of which preformed to the highest level that is expected from the Maritimo product. Back at the factory in the R&D section the new M61 was in the middle of its mock-up stage and will surely be a hit in our Market. This model will follow some of Maritimo’s best selling points of full beam master staterooms, fully enclosed flybridge with internal staircase and aft galley with bi-folding doors to the cockpit.
Maritimo is a unique product that is built in a unique part of the world. The features of sea worthiness, long range and large fuel capacity are expected in the Australian market and really impress the American market. We have taken the time to listen to Maritimo buyers from all over the US and have implemented many options “Americanizing” the boats. Adding engineering items from dual 50 amp power cords, dual generators, engine room fans and extra fuel filters to adding a touch of timber or leather finish to a white fiberglass interior area to create a comfort feel. We have taken a close look at this product and customized it to perfection! Sydney and the rest of Australia know Maritimo as a very high quality, well-built vessel that performs marvelously; America now has the opportunity to see that too.
