Azimut picks agent in Thailand


Pinnacle Marine, exclusive dealers for Azimut Yachts in Thailand, has appointed Yacht Solutions as its service agent for Azimut clients in Thailand.

Yacht Solutions offers shore support service including refit, management, charter, after-sales service, safety equipment servicing and maintenance.

“We have been in the marine refit and maintenance business in Thailand for over 12 years and we have been looking to partner with an international brand that has an active interest in expanding their business into Asia,” said Gareth Twist, managing director of Yacht Solutions. “The arrival of Azimut Thailand shows both great confidence in Pinnacle Marine and the Asian yacht market.”

Recent trends show that the superyacht industry has had a year-on-year increase in the number of superyacht purchases in Asia, and Azimut has expanded its network into Thailand.

“This agreement represents each company’s strong commitment to providing Azimut customers with a single source and point-of-contact for all their service requirements,” said Grant Saunders, managing director of Pinnacle Marine. “Yacht Solutions will support Pinnacle Marine both with pre-delivery and after-sales service for all the new and second-hand yachts we sell.”
