The 2012 Club Marine Australian Marine Export & Superyacht Industry Awards, organized by the Australian International Marine Export Group (AIMEX) were announced last week at the AIMEX and Club Marine annual networking function in Sydney’s Darling Harbor.
New South Wales based Sailfish Catamarans, were awarded ‘Best Marine Industry Export Performance (Medium)’.
Sailfish Catamarans are builders of high quality custom plate aluminum power catamarans for the recreational, government & rescue markets. Established in 1993, Sailfish has grown from a staff team of 2, producing 5 boats a year, to now over twenty full time staff, producing over 30 custom build catamarans a year. Their success has been a direct result of the team efforts and they continue to cultivate the highest levels on ethical standards and workmanship within the workplace.
Presence at Sydney International Boat Show for many years allowed Sailfish Catamarans entry to export into the New Zealand market. They have since been exporting boats to the USA, Malta and the UK. Russia was a new market for Sailfish and their first vessel was exported there in 2011.
Investment into e-marketing, attendance at international boat shows and an increased dealer network has helped Sailfish to seek new export opportunities and to increase exposure for their products.
