Ribbon-cutting ceremony for the birth of Azimut Yachts Thailand: an Azimut Lounge opens in Pattaya, while in Bangkok the boatyard signs a dealership agreement with MGC Marine.
Azimut Yachts Thailand starts their operations with a double event: first a gran gala to inaugurate the luxurious Azimut Lounge on the coast of Pattaya, then an official ceremony, dignified also by the presence of the Italian Ambassador, to celebrate the agreement with MGC Marine. This deal marks a significant step to strengthen the presence of the yard in the area, but also to promote tourism on the territory.
MGC Marine is part of Master Group Corporation (Asia), main dealer in the automotive business representing brand such as Rolls-Royce and Aston Martin. Beside the introduction of the first three Azimut Yachts available on the market, 50 to 85 feet, it’s been time for the grand opening of the new Azimut Lounge by Ocean Marina Yacht Club in Pattaya. 90 minutes drive from Bangkok, the lounge will allow the Azimut Yachts customers to receive the best welcome and service. The ribbon-cutting ceremony has counted among others the Mayor of Pattaya and the local authorities.
The Azimut Lounge will offer a complete range of services to satisfy all the owners’ needs, while a second Lounge is scheduled to be opened in Phuket within the next 12 months. The designer has taken inspiration by marine environment, to create classy and contemporary interiors.
An official ceremony has been held in Bangkok too, to celebrate the new partnership with MGC Marine, at the presence of the Italian Ambassador and around 150 journalists.
“We strongly believe in the strategy we are implementing on South-Eastern markets, and in the consolidation of the sales and service network – stated Giovanna Vitelli, owner of Azimut-Benetti Group and daughter of the chairman and founder Paolo Vitelli. We selected a significant partner, which is going to grant our customers the highest level of service and competence”.
“Thailand is known and appreciated in the world, and is considered a coveted destination – added Sunhavut Thamchuanviriya, Group Managing Director of Master Group Asia Ltd (MGC) . Nautical tourism has a great potential thanks to the natural beauties, the uncontaminated islands, the boating service centers that comply to international standards”.
