Meridian Boats showing strong growth in Australia

Australian sales are up and boat buyers are showing increasing interest in the Meridian Yachts brand, evident from the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show last month.

That’s according to Sports Marine, the agent for the Meridian brand in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.
The dealership which has branches in Sydney, Auckland and Christchurch sold an AU$800,000 Meridian 441 Sedan on the first day of the Boat Show which ran from 22-25 May.

“The interest and enquiries about the Meridian brand have been fantastic and shows boat buyers are seriously considering these Motor Yachts,” says Sports Marine Managing Director Scott Williamson.

“Meridian Yachts show fantastic value for money in a quality motor yacht,” he says.

“Since taking on the brand 12 months ago in Australia, we’ve recorded sales in excess of AU$2.25M, with more Meridians on order from the United States as demand increases.”

Scott Williamson says he was delighted with the sale at the Sanctuary Cove event last month – which reported a 15 percent increase in visitor numbers.

“This was our first time at the boat show in ten years, and it was a fantastic place to showcase the Meridian brand,” he says.

Meridian Yachts has vessels ranging from 35 to 54 feet – and sets a standard in its class for cruising prowess, vessel manoeuvrability, gracious living quarters and superior on-board comfort. More information at www.meridian-yachts.com
