22 Feb New hire, new HQ for Whitehaven and Integrity Motor Yachts
Seasoned boat sales professional, Jason Kowalski has joined Whitehaven & Integrity Motor Yachts based at the brands new headquarters at Sanctuary Cove on Queensland’s Gold Coast.
Kowalski, who has been around boats all his life and in the boating business since 2004, began his career at Riviera, “on the tools”, before moving into electrical design, and eventually international warranty and support.
He worked on the development and production of the successful Belize range of luxury motor yachts, then spent the past three years in sales.
“This is an exciting new phase for Whitehaven and Integrity as a united company,” said Kowalski, adding that he is looking forward to contributing to the growth of both brands.
“My main objective is customer service and satisfaction,” he continued. “Whitehaven and Integrity customers are extremely fastidious – they know what they want from a lifetime of boating. I will be applying all my skills to working closely with Whitehaven and Integrity owners to bring their boating visions to life.”
Following the purchase of Integrity Motor Yachts in July 2017, Whitehaven Motor Yachts has relocated its HQ to Sanctuary Cove Marina, staking its claim at the marina ahead of the 2018 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, 24 to 27 May.
The new, expanded dealership will offer a great range of new and brokerage vessels and the expertise of a multi-skilled team.
“We welcome Jason onboard, working with us to take Whitehaven and Integrity to the next level,” said General Manager, Peter Pembroke.
“Sanctuary Cove is a superb base. The Village and Marina are busy year-round and Sanctuary Cove has a lively calendar of events, including one of Australia’s premier boat shows, which attracts 40,000 visitors.
“Integrity has been based at Sanctuary Cove since its launch in 2008 and Whitehaven has enjoyed strong support from Sanctuary Cove,” said Pembroke.
“We look forward to an extremely exciting 2018, with additions to our team and new models including the exciting new 6100 Euro Coupe and Harbour Classic 40 models.”
Whitehaven is a fully bespoke brand that appeals to experienced boaties looking to create their ideal, luxury entertaining and cruising motor yacht. Integrity offers a level of customisation and the same attention to detail, but in a trawler-style displacement and semi-displacement range. Together, they are a compelling proposition with something for everybody at every stage of their boating lives.
Whitehaven Director, Ryan Hanson is pleased with the move to Sanctuary Cove, which he sees as the “epicentre of Queensland boating”.
“Sanctuary Cove is a vibrant, coastal community built around the Marina and Coomera River the perfect launching pad for exploring the Broadwater, Moreton Bay and beyond. It is quite literally a boat show 365 days a year, and we look forward to meeting the locals and the visitors that this excellent Masterplanned community attracts.”
