Poole-based firm defy credit crunch
Sunseeker Sales Group are moving into North Africa and dismiss suggestions the luxury charter market is being hit by the credit crunch.
The group boasts positive growth in orders during the last six months.
They say: “With North Africa planning to boost its tourism industry and to capitalise on the growing interest in motor yachting among the region’s high-net worth individuals, SSG are preparing to distribute and sell the Sunseeker range in Morocco, Tunisia and Libya.
“Suitable premises are currently under review and the new offices will add to Sunseeker Sales Group’s existing portfolio of sales and service operations based in the Balearics, Costa del Sol, France, Turkey and Malta.”
Dominic Byrne, managing director of Sunseeker Sales Group, says: “Despite the unrest seen in the financial environment recently it’s been positive for us. We continue to see little impact of the much talked about weakening in European consumer markets and during the last six months we have seen no decline in sales demonstrating that the market is still very health. We view our move into North Africa as a tremendous opportunity to leverage the Sunseeker brand and believe this region has enormous potential, and we look forward to growing our international sales and presence.”
