Southampton Boat Show 2012 – Jeanneau / Prestige
If you’re a boat enthusiast you will already be thinking about Southampton International Boat Show. We will be exhibiting on the Jeanneau Sailboat, Prestige Yacht, and Jeanneau Motor Boat stands.
I am delighted to welcome back Christian Harris who will be representing Prestige Motor Yachts for us. You can find the Prestige Motor Yachts in the Marina close to the Sealine stand. Christian is under strict instruction to Sell Sell Sell! so if you’re looking for a Prestige Motor Yacht at a bargain price, then Christian is your man. Some of you will be aware of our connections in the Mediterranean and for those of you who don’t know, we had an office in Spain for three years. Christian was a frequent flyer to Alicante a couple of years ago and is hoping to re-book his seat on virtually every flight for 2013. So once again if you’re thinking of buying a boat for the Med, Christian is your man.
Our commissioning team is ready to deliver the Prestige Motor Yacht of your dreams to that warm and sunny place ready for 2013. One important point worth mentioning is all the sales staff at NYB Conwy have a great deal of experience commissioning boats abroad. If you’re not quite ready to buy a boat yet but would like some advice on how to buy and place a boat in the Mediterranean, please don’t hesitate to call us.
The sailboat stand this year will be in its usual place near to the Red Funnel entrance on Stand F5. As I mentioned Phil and myself will be working as hard as ever talking to clients about the amazing Jeanneau Sailboat range. Most of the boats that we sell at Southampton will find their way to the Mediterranean. Without doubt the most popular place in the sun is Spain and although Spain is suffering more than most in the recession, with the strengthening pound against the euro, we have seen a sharp increase in enquiries from our clients who once again are looking for a sunny place to sail their new boat and Spain is still the number one choice.
Robin Groom will be based on Jeanneau Motor boats and he has been part of the NYB Conwy sales team for about 12 months. His background is with Network Chandlers and he manages our after sales department so if any of you have any warranty niggles that you want to discuss, Robin is in the Marina at Southampton and will be delighted to talk to you. Incidentally Jeanneau and Prestige have re-confirmed their commitment to provide the best after sales service in the industry. I am delighted to say that claims, although generally very small are being dealt with very quickly at the factory.
I will be backed up on the Jeanneau Sailboat stand by David Woodward and Craig Jones from Network Chandlers. As ever Kerry will be back at base keeping the office open for business (what would we do without her!)
If any of you require tickets for the show, we do have limited numbers of concessionary tickets for those of you wishing to travel from our home base in North Wales to purchase a new boat. If we can tempt you into making the decision this year, please give us a call and we will be delighted to meet you at the gate with complimentary tickets. Ticket numbers are limited so the free tickets are on a first ask, first serve basis. During the show there are also a number of tickets that become available on a daily basis so give us a call and we will see what we can do.
See you at the show.
