Simon Dickens, Nexus Marine AB’s European Sales and Marketing Manager comments that 'Salona is an ideal partner for us; they have a solid racing pedigree that has evolved into also building fantastic performance cruisers for the global market. Nexus is also well-known in the racing market and our instruments will match Salona’s customer’s aspirations and requirements perfectly.' The deal will mean that Nexus Marine will potentially supply 50 boats per year and will also see Salona and Nexus team up with some joint marketing. This will include the star owner of Nexus, Dean Barker, (Emirates Team NZ America’s Cup skipper) promoting the relationship by test sailing the S38 and the inclusion of Salona / Nexus yachts on a wider scale in both companies marketing materials.

'We are so pleased to welcome Nexus on board the Salona crew' adds Nenad Susanj, Salona’s Head of Sales; 'our customers expect quality, precision and reliability from our yachts and Nexus share the same philosophy for their instruments. The NX2 range of instruments allows our customers an increased range of connectivity, choice and sailing enjoyment; whilst on a commercial level Nexus’ have shown the willingness to focus on the Salona brand, provide sales and installation training for our staff and enable our customers to have a wider variety of choices for their instrument needs.'

Nexus Marine was created in late 2006 as the result of a de-merger from the Silva Group: the Nexus brand encapsulates 70 years of experience in the design and manufacture of precision electronics. Simon Dickens adds 'I am excited about the new opportunities our partnership with Salona opens up to us. We will be actively building on this success to partner with other major boat builders around the world. Nexus Instruments are already the choice of many major projects including being the exclusive supplier of electronics for the Tour de France á la Voile M34 race boat, the first J/111 and ‘Vertigo’ a 62m ketch recently launched in NZ by Alloy Yachts'.
