Christchurch, 5th October 2023 – At the 2023 Nimbus Boats annual dealer conference held in Croatia, Sports Marine was honoured to receive the “Global Dealer of the Year” award, surpassing 153 other dealers across 40 countries to claim the top prize. This award recognised Sports Marine’s exceptional dedication, commitment, and success in promoting and selling Nimbus Boats, a brand renowned for its high-quality craftsmanship and innovative design in the boating world.
“Sports Marine stands out as one of our premier dealers, consistently achieving top marks in every aspect of our partnership. Their commitment to customer satisfaction, robust sales performance, well-defined business growth strategy, proactive expansion into new markets, effective marketing initiatives, and, crucially, their steadfast adherence to our payment terms and meticulous management of logistics all contribute to their outstanding performance” – Jonas Gothberg, Commercial Director Nimbus Group.
Sports Marine has proudly been Nimbus Boats dealers for the last six years, during which we have successfully sold over 70 boats across Australia and New Zealand. “The Nimbus range fits perfectly within our unique waterways across New Zealand and Australia.

The brand’s unparalleled quality, attention to detail, and clever design choices have made it a favourite among our customers.” Jack Ludemann, Marketing Manager, Sports Marine.
“First, I would like to thank our loyal customers, whose support and trust in Sports Marine has been key to our international success. Their confidence in us to deliver the boat of their dreams is truly humbling and not something that we take lightly.
