China dealership reports 50% rise in sales

Williams Jet Tenders and its China dealership, Williams Tenders Greater China, have announced “exceptional sales success across Asia,” thanks in part to a resurgence in boating despite the global pandemic.

Following the 2020 appointment of Williams Tenders Greater China, which represents Williams across the region, sales have increased in the region by 50%. Williams Tenders Greater China is also the dealer for Princess Yachts Greater China.

“Williams Jet Tenders has seen significant demand in the market during the past year and has fast become one of the most popular tenders in places such as Hong Kong,” said Adam Waters, general manager of Williams Tenders Greater China. “This year has resulted in people boating and exploring with many customers using their boats more for overnight trips.”

Boat dealers in Hong Kong enjoyed significant sales success in 2020, as Hong Kong residents in particular have taken to their yachts as a way to self-isolate amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Williams Tenders Greater China were appointed by the brand to expand its sales and servicing network, joining a network of over 56 dealers worldwide. Williams Tenders Greater China now represents the brand across Hong Kong, Macau and Mainland China, with multiple offices across Hong Kong and a dedicated after sales service centre. They also have offices across China including Shanghai, Shenzhen and Dalian.
