Simpson Marine announced this week that it has signed a contract to supply a fleet of 33 Lagoon sailing catamarans to a customer in China. The fleet will comprise a mix of Lagoons ranging in size from 40 to 62 feet and will be used by the buyer, Guangzhou based luxury members club, Tiger Club World, to introduce its high net worth members to the pleasures of yachting.

'This is the largest ever single order of yachts for delivery into the growing China market, eclipsing the order for 30 Beneteau First 40.7s for the China Cup five years ago' said Mike Simpson, Managing Director of Simpson Marine after the signing ceremony in Guangzhou. 'Simpson Marine is uniquely able to complete this type and size of deal. We have been active in the China market for many years and now have a network of offices and services centers covering the South China coast. We have the local knowledge and project management expertise to make our client’s dream come true.'

'We may decide to take first delivery of some of the yachts in France so that my members can have their first sailing experience in the Mediterranean' added Tiger Wu, Founder and CEO of Tiger Club World. 'Then we will ship the boats to Hong Kong, re-commission them at Simpson’s service centre and deliver them to Guangzhou. This project has been a dream of mine for many years and I am thrilled to be able to embark on it with such valued partners as Simpson Marine and the Beneteau Group.'

Also present at the contract signing was Francois Rodrigues, Bénéteau Group’s General Manager for China, who commented: 'This is the biggest single order ever received by the Lagoon shipyard and we are very pleased that Simpson Marine’s many years of hard work in the China market has paid off in this way. We look forward to working with Tiger Club World and believe that this will be the start of a long and fruitful relationship. We will do everything in our power to ensure the success of this project.'

The 33 yacht fleet will begin construction within the next few months and will be delivered from late 2011 through 2012. Simpson Marine will manage all aspects of the project from specification through build supervision to commissioning and provision of crew for the entire fleet as well as providing the high level of after sales care for which Simpson Marine is well known throughout Asia.
