Numarine has announced the launch of a North American distribution arm to serve customers along the Atlantic and Pacific coastlines as well as the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean.
Numarine North America will have three points of distribution to manage its extensive service network and will be headed up by Parker Stair, who has previously worked with Mastercraft and other brands in the marine and media worlds. Numarine’s range runs from 55ft to 130ft, built in a 35,000 square meter facility in Istanbul, Turkey. There is also a UK-based division called Numarine International which handles management and sales and marketing. Numarine received an order for a new 31.08m 102 superyacht in April this year.
Numarine International MD Ian Birdsall said, “North America is an important component to our expansion worldwide, yet we didn’t want to go the route of large multi-line yacht brokers. Our boats incorporate so many advanced construction techniques, that it is imperative that the people selling them have a first hand knowledge of the significant advantages we offer.
“So we chose to work only with seasoned independent veterans who trained at our factory to understand what makes a Numarine such a compelling option in today’s world. Our North American team is small, yet highly competent, with access to a vast network of service providers. So whenever a Numarine owner requires service or repair, regardless of where the boat is located or who originally sold the boat, we just take care of it.”
Parker said, “The timing is perfect for a brand like Numarine to be offered in North America as an alternative to the brands that have historically dominated here.”
