Simpson Marine is rapidly strengthening its presence in South China. The opening of a flagship office at the Serenity Coast Marina in Sanya (Hainan) will complement Simpson's offices in Shenzhen and Hong Kong.

Mike Simpson commented 'We are the only dealer with a coherent approach to the luxury yacht market in China - and the wider region - to cater to the growing number of high net worth individuals. Simpson Marine is ready to serve the fast expanding Chinese market, and specifically its southern part, which is transforming itself into the yachting hub of China. Azimut, Beneteau and Lagoon are regarded as leaders in their field and we want our yacht owners to get the best service and support. This is our strong commitment to China's vibrant yachting scene'.

On top of the existing eight marinas in operation, over 12 new marina projects have been identified on the southern coast of China and Hainan. The idea of a 'Chinese Riviera' stretching from Xiamen to Sanya has never been so relevant.
As a measure of its commitment to its Chinese clientele, Simpson Marine will participate at SIBEX this month, the leading yacht show in Guangdong province, and will display on water the latest range of Azimut yachts, Beneteau and Lagoon sailing boats.

In a strong push to the south, Simpson Marine will further strengthen its presence in Hainan with participation at the Hainan International Boat Show (December 2011) and a strong display of yachts highlighting the company's leading position on the island at the Hainan Rendezvous to be held in April 2012.

Simpson Marine fields a powerful team of experienced yacht brokers as well as highly qualified maintenance technicians and managers. The company is viewed on the China yachting scene as a benchmark for service organisation and after sale support.
