Calibre and Neptunus

Nov 19, 2020

Calibre Yacht Sales is proud to announce that, effective immediately, Calibre Yacht Sales and Neptunus Yachts International have established a partnership for the sales and marketing of new Neptunus yachts in the Pacific Northwest.

Neptunus Yachts is Canada’s leading manufacturer of luxury motor yachts, with models ranging from 55’ to 75’. Neptunus has been building high quality yachts for over 30 years, in St. Catharines Ontario, and has built over 175 yachts during this time. Jan Willem de Jong, Managing Director for Neptunus Yachts, believes “the values and teams of Neptunus and Calibre are perfectly aligned to support our launch in the Pacific Northwest.”

Neptunus Yachts builds semi-custom yachts that are rich in style and detail, yet designed for
dependability and performance. For the past five model years, the commitment to CE Category A – Ocean certification reflects Neptunus Yachts’ total commitment to the quality of its yachts. Many Neptunus owners are on their second or third Neptunus yacht, and some owners are even on their fourth or fifth.

Calibre Yacht Sales started in business in 2008 with one office and two people and has grown to five offices and 18 people throughout BC. Calibre Yachts was founded on Trust, Integrity and a Passion for the Boating Lifestyle. Richard Evans, Calibre CEO, states “Calibre Yachts Sales is delighted to be in partnership with Neptunus Yachts, whose core values and beliefs are in perfect sync with ours.

Neptunus Yachts, with their quality construction, excellent performance and open design for bringing both the outdoors in and indoors out, are wonderfully suited to yachting in the Pacific Northwest.”

The two companies’ philosophies are rooted in the belief of building strong relationships with their customers, as well as delivering a product and service in a way that is reliable and comfortable. Trust, Integrity and Lifestyle align the philosophies of the two companies which will result in their customers having the boat and experience of their lives.

Neptunus 650F 400

By Andy Adams

Over the years Canadian Yachting has had the pleasure of doing several boat review articles on new Neptunus models and we are familiar with the qualities that Neptunus is famous for. They have all been exceptional yachts, but this is the one I would most want to own myself. It’s a personal choice and a matter of taste as to whether you would prefer to have a sedan express model or a flybridge but in my opinion, the flybridge layout offers some wonderful attributes.

We met with Neptunus Managing Director Jan Willem De Jong this past fall to take the new Neptunus 650F out in Lake Ontario.
