Asiamarine sells Galeon models across Asia
The regional dealer has secured the sales of notable Galeon motor yachts in Hong Kong, Thailand and Taiwan.
Asiamarine (click for Profile, Issue 70) has announced the first sale in Hong Kong of Galeon’s 560 Fly motor yacht, a new model from the European builder that had its world premiere at the Miami International Boat Show in February.
The regional dealer’s Galeon sales this year also include the first 640 Fly sold in Thailand, while the first Galeon 500 Fly in Taiwan was sold by a dealer appointed under Galeon Asia, a network managed by Asiamarine (click for article).
Eric Noyel, founder and Chairman of Asiamarine, said: “After the golden Covid years, the market had anticipated a decline in boat sales and yet 2023 is proving as resilient and active as last year. In this context, we’re particularly proud of the sales of these Galeon models in Thailand, Hong Kong and Taiwan this year.
“These firsts in Asia will increase exposure of Galeon in these markets and reach new customers drawn to the style and intelligence of the ‘transformer concept’, where the balconies truly increase the living space available for fun and enjoyment.”
Asiamarine, which hosted a Bali Catspace Open Day in Deep Water Bay on June 8, also said sales of pre-owned yachts were at a record high in the first quarter “due to a noticeable increase in availability, which contrasts sharply with last year where buyers had no choice but to wait for long periods of time”.
The dealership also represents Fraser in Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand, and said Fraser Asia has already sold more boats in early 2023 than throughout last year, stating that the number of superyachts for sale has “more than tripled”.
