Germany’s Bavaria Yachts has appointed two new sales managers to support dealers in northern Europe, the UK and Spain, as well as North and South America.

Marian Scheer joins Bavaria from Hanse Yachts. He will be responsible for Scandinavia, the Baltic states, Poland, England, Ireland and Spain. Scheer is a successful sailor who has won numerous trophies and medals at the World Championships in different dinghy classes. Nowadays, he is more often found on big boats at regattas.

Simon Claxton joins the company from Navico, where he served as sales director. He will be responsible for Bavaria Yachts dealers in North and South America. One of his first main tasks will be to expand and organise the dealer network in the US. Claxton is an enthusiastic sailor and motorboater who has worked in the yacht industry for more than 20 years.

“By appointing Marian Scheer and Simon Claxton, the Bavaria Yachts sales team has gained two more top people from the industry and we are now perfectly positioned in all markets,” says Stefan Klaassen, Bavaria’s head of sales.
