Cruising motoryacht builder Explorer Motor Yachts of Hong Kong has appointed SGBoating in Singapore to handle distribution throughout South-east Asia.

SGBoating is among Singapore's largest recreational boating and yachting retailers with headquarters at Raffles Marina.

"We are excited to represent the strong Explorer brand in our region,” says Eric Koh, Sales Manager at SGBoating. “We are working hard to prepare for the Singapore Boat Show (April 10-13), where we will have a significant display with Explorer Motor Yachts."

Koh added that Explorer CEO Mark Campion would join the SGBoating team throughout the show.

According to Campion, SGBoating's ability to offer clients a complete boating experience, from purchase to service and warranty, made it a standout choice.

"The company has a large team of highly experienced marine retailers," says Campion. "The market opportunity for our semi-custom, trawler-style motor yachts is expanding rapidly in this region and we need the best team possible to represent us."

Campion paid tribute to the company's previous dealer in the region, Alan Pickering at ProMetheus Marine.

"Alan and I have been friends for a long time and I have been very proud of his work in promoting our brand," says Campion. "Alan now has other business plans and I am sad we have to go separate ways. He remains a friend and important contact and advisor.

"Over the past 18 years or so Alan has made significant contributions to all aspects of the marine industry in Singapore and the region."
