Azimut Yachts Opens New Sales Office in Grey Lynn
Azimut Yachts New Zealand has opened a new sales office in Auckland at 33/332 Great North Road, Grey Lynn.
Situated in the heart of the luxury car precinct of Grey Lynn, the new sales office will provide an increased brand presence for the Italian builder and brings the New Zealand dealership into line with other Azimut dealers around the world.
“Sales growth and interest in Azimut is at a record high for the New Zealand market as demand for luxury - high quality innovation products soars globally - we believe sales will continue to remain buoyant over the coming months,” says, Grant Saunders, Dealer Principal of Pinnacle Marine European Ltd – the authorised New Zealand agent for Azimut.
2019 continues to be a busy year for Azimut in New Zealand with the confirmation of the sale of a new Grande 25 Metri model and a Grande 32 Metri to New Zealand buyers. This follows on from the sale of a 53 Magellano and 66 Flybridge earlier in the year.
The four sales in the first quarter of 2019 set a new record for Azimut in the New Zealand market, totalling in excess of NZ$ 30 million.
“We are thrilled to also announce the sale of a new Grande 25 Metri to an existing New Zealand Azimut owner - this being the second Azimut the clients have purchased from us.”
Released at the Cannes Yachting Festival last September, the Grande 25 Metri is a successor to the AZ 80 series; it features Carbon Tech superstructure, roll bar, hardtop and transom with a tender garage. The yacht will be based in Europe with handover scheduled for May.
“Following the sale of the 25 Metri in short succession we are proud to have confirmed the sale of a new Azimut Grande 32 Metri to a New Zealand client.”
Also released at the Cannes Yachting Festival last September this Grande motoryacht features exteriors by Stefeano Righini and interiors by Achille Salvagni with accommodation for ten plus five crew. Handover of the Grande 32 Metri will be in Europe in the early part of 2020.
2019 sees Azimut celebrate its 50-year anniversary and it is expected that up to five new models will be released before the end of the year including a new flagship S10.
