Pacific Motor Yachts appoints new manager
Sun, 19 May 2013
Gold Coast based Pacific Motor Yachts has announced the appointment of Scott Davis to the position of Brand Manager for Prestige and Jeanneau Motor Yachts.
A qualified marine engineer, Davis has 28 years experience working within the Queensland marine industry. After starting Tweed Coast Marine in 1998 delivering over 400 boats a year at it’s peak, he later sold the dealership in 2007 to progress into larger boat sales with Princess Yachts Australia where he has held the position as the overall top sales person nationally for the last 3 years.
Davis has worked with the Princess product since 2007 and with the brands recent move to a new dealership, feels the retail side of the business has changed and therefore wanted to associate with a motor yacht and dealership that has consistently exhibited a high level of customer satisfaction and on-water support. Davis described Pacific Motor Yachts’ attitude to customer care as extremely proactive and exceeding owners expectations.
'Pacific Motor Yachts offers its clients numerous opportunities to develop their boating confidence and enhance the overall ownership experience for Jeanneau and Prestige clients. This level of support aligns with how I plan on growing the brand through on-water Regatta’s, owner events and exceptional attention to customer service.'
An avid family boater himself, Davis will head up both the Jeanneau Power Boats and Prestige Luxury Motor Yachts brands with a focus on the 30 to 72 ft range of motor yachts and powerboats.
'After working 25 consecutive Sanctuary Cove Boat Shows, it’s obvious the number one reason a person buys a particular brand of boat is based on the level of after sales service and the integrity of the dealership team,' said Scott.
Pacific Motor Yachts has a presence at all the major national boat shows, has an extensive regatta schedule for its owners not to mention various new model events throughout the year.
'All these opportunities will enable me to deliver a higher caliber of service and customer care to connect with Pacific Motor Yacht owners by offering a complete end-to-end ownership from retailing right through to on-water support,' said Scott.
Dealership Managing Director, Brett Thurley, said 'Scott and I have a long history. We have grown up on boats all our lives and our fathers have instilled in us the importance of looking after the people that support your business by buying your brand. Scott is a consummate professional, has a huge amount of experience to impart and most importantly has chosen, like me, to spend his life in the boating industry. Our business is fortunate to have Scott join us and more importantly, our customers will enjoy immensely what he brings to our boating experiences together.'
