Italian superyacht builder Sanlorenzo , in partnership with Australian based Ensign Brokers International has opened Sanlorenzo Australia, a new brand representative that will distribute the Sanlorenzo products to the southern hemisphere market.

Mark Ali, CEO of Sanlorenzo Australia, said: “We are very proud to represent the iconic European Superyacht brand Sanlorenzo in the Australasian region and firmly believe that our already established long term commitment to excellence in our marketplace will provide the perfect platform for discerning clients that are looking to buy a bespoke and exclusive vessel”.

Sanlorenzo Australia will count on the sister company Ensign Brokers International significant footprint in Australia, with five offices on the East Coast, new offices to open shortly in Western Australia (Langkawai and Fremantle), along with 30 sales brokers and the largest brokerage vessel inventory in the southern hemisphere.

“There are many Australian buyers – continues Mark Ali – who in the past have purchased production vessels that offered limited scope for individuality in design with mass production limitations mitigated by economies of scale, and now Sanlorenzo Australia will bring to the market a product whereby the purchaser can be totally immersed in the project from beginning to end guided by passionate professionals at both the shipyard in Italy and on the ground in Australia”.

Sanlorenzo Australia’s management team consists of Mark Ali as CEO, Paul Taylor as sales director, Tony Ross as managing director based in head office on the Gold Coast Queensland, and Mauro Rosi – ex Sanlorenzo Superyacht division Italy – as product and technical manager now based in Sydney as well as Bob Lushey as sales executive based in Fremantle Western Australia.
