Inter Cars Group, the biggest automotive spare parts distributor in Central and Eastern Europe, is entering the market segment of spare parts, accessories and equipment for yachts and motor-boats. Starting from 8 March, boats manufacturers, repair garages and also individual customers will be able to buy all the parts they might need in Inter Cars branches. This way the Customers from Marine segment will be having a fast and price attractive channel of convenient distribution of all marine products - starting from maintenance kits, drive elements, through running materials and up to accessories and many more.


The first catalogue, meaning the product portfolio of Inter Cars for the Marine project had its premiere at the booth of the company during the Warsaw Wind and Water Fair.


From the very beginning, there shall be maintenance kits in Inter Cars Group product range, for the most popular motor-boats. In the following weeks the offer shall be continually extended, and finally it is to be divided into such product groups as: maintenance inspection sets, repair parts and kits, lubricants and liquids, accessories, special tools, chemicals, elements of propeller system and equipment.


The sailors will be offered spare parts by most well-known manufacturers, like: Yamaha, Mercury, Honda, Tohatsu, Suzuki, Evinrude, Johnson, Volvo Penta, Mercriuser, OMC, Yanmar, Vetus, Cummins or John Deere.


Customers, looking for spare parts and products for their yachts and boats will be able to take advantage of well-developed and efficient distribution chain of Inter Cars. Order realization time is to be the most important, as it is crucial not only for companies constructing and servicing the boats, but also for end users, who need the parts as fast as possible, in order to be able to continue their holidays. The scale of the action of Inter Cars Group ensures not only availability, but also another crucial factor, which is the price. All this will be supported by the distributor with experts’ support - highly qualified sales operators as well as training specialists for mechanics and retail sales operators.


Construction of sailing boats in our country is very well developed. The report by U.S. Commercial Services shows that, Poland is on the fifth place in the world manufacturing of yachts, and also the second country in the world in manufacturing small boats and motor-boats up to 10 metres length. Year on year the market is increasing its production, out of which 95 percent of vessels are exported mainly to Western Europe and to the USA. Moreover - every third yacht sailing in Europe was manufactured in Poland.


At the same time, great potential can be also noticed in the country - the Baltic Sea and the Great Mazurian Lakes are perfect natural environment for water sports. These areas are the greatest in Poland for sailing, and it is there, where most of the harbours and ports are located. The number of vessels registered in Poland is estimated at about 80 thousand. The market is constantly developing, and data of Marine associations show, that approx. 5 mio of Poles, at least once in their lifetime, took part in a sailing journey. Whilst in the last 40 years, over one million sailing patents have been issued. These numbers show how big the potential is for delivering Marine services and products in Poland.


People with great experience in servicing, maintenance and repair of sailing vessels are responsible in Inter Cars for creation and development of the “water” segment. Among them, there are also experts with decades of experience in servicing boats used by the Coast Guard and the Navy, and also working for well-known manufacturers of motor-boats equipment.


One does not need long-lasting analysis to notice, that in the sector there is a lot to do, in case of availability of goods, quality and time of delivering services. Manufacturers of many spare parts for motor-boats are already our suppliers, so it will be easy for us to build the product range. I think, that this way we will be able to change the market - said Maciej Oleksowicz, President of the Management Board of Inter Cars S.A.


We are creating a chain of fast distribution of spare parts for yachts and boats, and maintenance services for their owners and users. I think we are setting a new trend in the industry. We are simplifying the way the customer has to cover when looking for a service or parts, at the same time keeping top standards and procedures - declares Konrad Zatoński, Technical Director of Marine Project.


Inter Cars Group does not intend to stop with Marine segment distribution only on its domestic market. In the following months, distribution channels are to be developed in the countries, where motor-sports are the most popular, i.e. in Italy, Croatia and Greece.


We are sending a clear signal to garages servicing boats, by offering them a solution to their problems, which they have to face on a daily basis, i.e. high prices and long delivery times even in case of basic elements - explained Oleksowicz.


For this reason, the group is planning to launch a warehouse in Croatian Zagreb.


People spend their holiday on water, and they do not want any malfunctions to ruin their holiday plans, that is why we want to provide them with services and product range, which is not only unique in Poland, but all over Europe - summarized Zatoński.
