Fraser Yachts has opened a new office in Sydney, Australia.

“Australia is an important and growing market for Fraser Yachts and an emerging destination for superyacht sales and charter,” says Fabio Ermetto, Fraser chairman.

“Fraser Yachts wants to play a key role in this area in the coming years and we see Australia as a central region for the growing demand of superyacht owners in Australasia.”

The new office will be overseen and managed by Peter and Domenica Redford and their staff at 5 Star Motor Cruisers. The company has many years’ experience selling luxury motoryachts and the team is fluent in English, Italian, French, Spanish, Russian and Chinese.

Fraser Yachts is said to be the world’s largest luxury yacht service provider, with over 140 employees and 14 offices around the globe. Services include yacht sales, charter, yacht management, crew and construction, specialising in yachts over 30m (98ft).

The company is part of Azimut-Benetti’s Yachtique division.
