This year saw a record number of visitors to the Simpson Marine stand; a clear testament to the strong collaboration with the Peters & May brand. Exhibiting a range of 11 yachts, the level of interest the Simpson Marine team attracted at the show clearly demonstrates the strength of the yachting market in Asia as it continues to entice new owners. The excitement of existing customers in the new models Simpson Marine offer, also demonstrates the brands success in maintaining great relations with existing customers as they look to upgrade their yachts! Peters & May were proud to play their role in this as a trusted partner of Simpson Marine’s for the show. Assisting through our outstanding service; our team were delighted to be on hand to discuss the logistics of yacht transportation post purchase.
Richard Skinner, Peters & May’s Regional Manager for Asia explains: “The partnership between Peters & May and Simpson Marine added a great dynamic to Singapore Yacht Show this year. Having already worked closely with Simpson Marine as one of Asia’s leading yacht brokerage firms it was great to truly cement our partnership and work together collaboratively. With every yacht that is purchased, there are sure to be transportation needs and it was great to meet clients, answering any questions regarding the delivery of yachts sold by Simpson Marine”.
The cloudy weekend weather certainly didn’t disrupt the celebrations of Singapore Yacht Show which is renowned for its social scene. This year was no disappointment with Simpson Marine, alongside Peters & May hosting 3 separate events on the stand. The Sanlorenzo party, Beneteau and Lagoon event as well as the MCY party were a great way speak to yacht owners, brokers, captains and other visitors in a relaxed environment. With global representatives from the Peters & May team present; our Italian and French offices in particular, found these events a great opportunity to meet with clients. This is something which is undeniably valuable as they work hard dealing directly with the factories of Sanlorenzo, Beneteau, Lagoon and Monte Carlo Yachts daily.
Simpson Marine were also pleased with the benefits the collaboration brought for the show, as explained by Desiree Goh, Regional Marketing Manager: “We had yet another successful edition of the Singapore Yacht Show and were delighted to have Peters & May as our Trusted Shipping Partner, complementing the team with shipping advice support during the 4 days at Singapore. We have already announced the sale of 2 yachts following the show with more to come. Without a doubt Peters & May will be our transport partner of choice for delivering these yachts safely to their expecting owners”.
