German company Cayago, which produces Seabob, staged its Asia-Pacific launch at the Singapore Yachting Festival, with the company setting up its regional base in the city. Cayago Asia Pacific has been established in Singapore to oversee Seabob’s representation in the area, with the office headed by Claus Gruner seeking to expand and support its dealer network and customer service.
“We have a unique market position and more than 15 years of experience in electric underwater propulsion with Li-Ion accumulators, also working for years with major global yacht brands at corporate level,” said Gruner, Managing Director of Cayago Asia Pacific. “This has laid a solid foundation to further expand our business in the Asia-Pacific region.”
Seabob, which has become a common water toy on many charter yachts over the last decade, can reach up to 22kmh. Besides the yachting and boating markets, an important segment for Seabob is the hospitality industry with rentals from hotels, clubs, resorts and private operators.
“The completely environmentally friendly Seabob is the best fit for our partners to entertain customers with ultimate diving pleasure, pure freedom to play with the waves or experience underwater adventures,” Gruner added. “We’ve been experiencing and celebrating great success with partners in the Mediterranean and the Americas, and now expect to see more Seabobs happily enjoyed in Asia.”
At the Singapore Yachting Festival (April 27-30), Cayago Asia Pacific is exhibiting a range of Seabob models with extended colour options including the new Black Line series, while also offering demos and test rides.
