simpson marine enjoys success in singapore

Simpson Marine, Asia’s largest yacht brokerage company, has announced that it has tripled its boat sales compared to the previous year. Simpson Marine exhibited three yachts at the recent Singapore Yacht Show, including the Azimut 116. Simpson Marine Singapore General Manager Paul Whelan said that the news augured well for the superyacht industry across Asia. “Last November alone, Simpson Marine took delivery of five new luxury yachts in Singapore, amidst signs that the luxury yacht sector is showing healthy growth, despite the ongoing global economic crisis.”

Three of those yacht sales were from renowned Italian builder Azimut Yachts. Simpson Marine was founded by British yacht enthusiast Mike Simpson 26 years ago, and has become one of Asia’s most prolific yacht brokers.
