Out & About - December/January
Christmas Card Drop Off
Customer Relations Manager, Matt, visited the South of France and Italy two weeks before Christmas to undertake our annual Christmas card run. Meanwhile, our Palma representative Mal travelled to Barcelona to carry out the same task. Matt and Mal made sure all yachts were up to date in regards to spares to equipment that our customers needed before the Christmas break, before wishing them all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
James Visited Turkey, Holland & Germany
James’ last New Build trip of the year saw him travel to Turkey, Holland & Germany to liaise with project teams across various shipyards. Again, his aim was to ensure everything was on track before the Christmas break, so work can resume as normal in the busy New Year!

In 2018 we plan to be out & about more than ever. Team members will continue to visit quays and shipyards regularly and will be attending many industry events including the likes of Monaco and METS. First up this year, we look forward to being a big part of the Superyacht Charity Ball! We also plan to host several events ourselves in various locations throughout the year in order to meet current and new industry professionals– stay posted for details!
