Australian boatbuilder Maritimo has appointed Greg Haines as head of sales and marketing.

Until recently, Haines worked in the family owned Haines Group, where he was heavily involved in expanding the Suzuki Marine dealer network. He retains an interest in the company alongside his brother John.

Maritimo CEO Garth Corbitt says the Haines family is synonymous with boating in Queensland and Australia. “Greg has boating as part of his DNA and we believe he will bring considerable strengths to the role particularly in dealer relations and marketing,” says Corbitt.

“His late father John had a similar reputation in the trailer boat sector to what Bill Barry-Cotter has in the larger luxury cruiser segment of the market and Greg is part of the Haines dynasty. He will be a valuable member of our team as we roll out a significant number of new models and seek to strengthen our network of dealers.”

Founded by Bill Barry-Cotter in 2003, Maritimo offers 14 separate boat models across four different lines – Cruising Motoryachts, Offshore Convertibles, Sports Cabriolets and Aegean Flybridges.
