Hunt, a U.S designer and builder of luxury classic motor yachts, hard bottom inflatables and express cruisers up to 72’, has appointed Barry Bailey as the latest addition to its International Sales Team. Based out of Queensland, Australia, Bailey will be the company’s Asia-Pacific regional representative, concentrating on new and brokerage sales across the company’s model lines – day cruisers, coastal cruisers, center consoles, inflatables, large express sedans and flybridge cruisers.
“Based on the global popularity of the Hunt line and our capacity to design recreational, commercial and military boats, we are excited about focusing in this market,” commented Hunt President Peter VanLancker. “Barry’s experience, and knowledge of the yachting clientele in the region, will be valuable assets to raise our profile, build the Hunt brand, and drive our expansion plans in this growth market."
Bailey is a qualified yacht sales executive with nearly 30 years of experience in the marine manufacturing and retail industries. As co-founder of Maritime Consultants & Management (MCM) in Hong Kong, Bailey handled large yacht construction and management contracts worldwide.
Bailey commented, “I have always worked with prestigious brands, and am excited to be joining the Hunt sales family. I look forward to presenting the Hunt product lines to my clients, and making inroads for the Hunt brand in this lucrative marketplace.”
