Following negotiations which started in 2019 on the 22nd of October 2020 for the first time in 55 years Euroyachts ceased to be owned by a member of the Scott family.
Yachts.co, Jeanneau distributors based in Swansea, now own Euroyachts entirely. Everybody involved is delighted with the change which sees all of our team staying with the company with the exception of our bookkeeper and of course Angus who is looking forward to less selling and more sailing having run the company for 26 years.
David Noble who has been with the company since 2001 will take over responsibility for general management and Nic Le Clanche who is a well respected member of the marine trade in Scotland and an accomplished yachtsman will take on responsibility for running our service department and customer satisfaction as well some brokerage.
There are no dramatic operational changes being made however improvements are underway already in terms of IT and digital presence which we anticipate will boost the efficiency of our brokerage activities.
Antoine Chancelier who is Jeanneau’s sales manager for UK and Ireland had this to say of the transaction:
“Jeanneau are delighted that Yachts.co have purchased Euroyachts. Euroyachts are amongst our longest serving, most experienced dealers globally and the influence of Yachts.co will complement the existing strengths at Euroyachts. The deal will also assure continuity of service for our customers which is something we prize very highly.”
With offices at Troon Yacht Haven and Scotland's first purpose-built showroom at Largs Yacht Haven, Euroyachts are distributers for Sun Odyssey, Sun Fast and Jeanneau Yachts, as well as Prestige, Merry Fisher and the NC range of Jeanneau Powerboats. In addition, Euroyachts are also dealers for BRIG RIBs and Suzuki outboards.
