NEW ZEALAND BOAT DEALERSHIP WINS GLOBAL DEALER OF THE YEAR
Swedish-based Nimbus Boats has handed its most prestigious award of the year to New Zealand marine dealership Sports Marine Limited.
The boat manufacturer recognised Sports Marine as its Dealer of the Year for 2018 at a recent awards ceremony in Gothenburg.
Sports Marine, which has dealerships in Christchurch and Auckland, officially launched Nimbus into the New Zealand market at the Hutchwilco Boat Show 18 months ago.
“We’ve been really pleased with how well received Nimbus boats have been by New Zealand boaties,” says Scott Williamson, Sports Marine’s Managing Director.
“This is evident in the fact that we’ve now sold 12 Nimbus boats since that boat show, and interest remains very high with a strong community of customers who are interested in the brand,” he says.
“Kiwis are particularly attracted to the Nimbus range because of their attractive scandinavian design, practical layout, low maintenance and low running costs.
“With New Zealand having a similar climate to Sweden, these boats are adaptable to our lifestyle and coastline.
“We’re truly delighted to win this award and look forward to seeing more Nimbus boats in New Zealand waters,” he says.
Sports Marine has been in the marine industry since 1978. Based in Christchurch it has dealerships in Auckland and Sydney. More information at www.sportsmarine.co.nz
The Nimbus brand has been around for more than 40 years with boats primarily designed for the European market. More information at https://nimbus.se/
