The Shanghai International Port Group, one of the largest port companies in China, is a new dealer for Azimut Yachts. The announcement was made by the managers of the world’s main luxury yacht builder, and continues their strategy of investing in Asia after launching Azimut Yachts in Thailand, Indonesia and Hong Kong.
SIPG is one of the world leaders in port operations and the biggest in China. In the yachting industry it is already a consolidated business. Among the properties that can be traced back to the Chinese company are the two tourist ports of Shanghai, including one in Bund, one of the most prestigious neighbourhoods. This is where the Italian company will open its new showroom in July 2015, complete with luxury clubhouse, dedicated to its clients, so as to guarantee them the best after-sales service possible, one of the main selling points of Azimut Yachts.
Marco Valle, Executive Vice President Sales Worldwide and Azimut Yachts China Chairman, made the following comment, “SIPG is the ideal partner to represent Azimut Yachts in a strategic part of China, such as Shanghai. Thanks to its financial strength and knowledge of the nautical industry, SIPG will be able to share with Chinese clients, our passion for the sea, and for which Azimut Yachts is proud ambassador in the world.”
