A very special offer to help you sell your boat

A very special offer to help you sell your boat

A very special offer to help you sell your boat

At Nicolle Associates we have had a very successful year so far and to keep that momentum running for clients new and old, we have a very special offer that could help you to sell before the winter.

Southampton boat show attracts visitors from all over the UK and Europe and many of them come for a couple of days to really get a good look at new and pre-owned boats for sale.

To help get your boat sold we are substantially discounting lift, pressure wash and storage ashore charges so that visitors can see as wide a range of boats as possible in one trip.

In fact the discount is so substantial that the first ten boats that are lifted ashore with us after 19th August will get a free lift, pressure wash and storage ashore until 18th October, a saving of over £1,000 on a typical 12m (39ft) boat.

If you aren’t one of the lucky ten, you will still get substantially discounted rate, saving approximately £900 on a typical 12m boat for the same package; so if you want the best of both worlds, enjoy the rest of the summer sailing and just make sure you book early to arrive ashore with us by 13th September when the offer ends.

We have been finding the right boat for the right buyers for over 12 years and have happy buyers all over the world and they come back, so we must be doing it right.

We have four in house brokers, a service department and for all of us, selling boats is personal. Our modern offices are directly opposite the Ketch Rigger restaurant and bar which is arguably the best marina bar in the Hamble.

In addition to listing your boat for sale on our site and all of the major portal sites on the web, this offer also includes free entry for your boat in to the Hamble Point Boat Show which runs to coincide with the Southampton International Boat Show in September.

We also provide a free courtesy shuttle bus from Southampton International Boat Show to bring visitors to us – because everyone knows that in the current market once buyers have seen new boats, buying pre-owned makes most sense. For those visitors traveling by car visitor parking and entry is also free.

While your boat is out of the water we can get it looking its best with great offers on cleaning, antifouling and other service and maintenance works.

We are sure this will make a difference to your pocket and to marketing your boat this selling season.

Contact one of our team for more details about this opportunity.

Details of our services are available on our website at –

Terms and Conditions do apply and this fantastic offer is subject to availability.

Bavaria parts compay with Grand Soleil

Monday, July 1st, 2013

Bavaria parts company with Grand SoleilBavaria has decided to separate from Grand Soleil, after two years working together. Grand Soleil was purchased in October 2011 out of a Concordato Preventivo procedure, a consensual composition with creditors which started almost a year before.

The acquisition was executed on the backdrop of a recovering market after the 2008-09 recession and an ambitious development plan in terms of new products and markets.

Over 40 million euro were invested to restructure and re-launch the company through the course of two years. A spokesman said: ‘These massive capital investments resulted in a far better and more efficient business: new products, improved market presence, improved dealer network and more efficient production.

‘However, the boating industry is in the midst of a severe recession, particularly affecting the Italian market to which Grand Soleil is very dependent. In addition, Grand Soleil requires further investment to support its development into segments outside the “Performance” niche and into new markets.’

Constantin von Bülow, CEO of Bavaria, said: ‘Given that our priority is and remains BAVARIA, we decided not to deploy further capital into Grand Soleil. This will allow us to concentrate the efforts on BAVARIA, ensuring that the company will be in the best possible strategic and operational position when the market will eventually recover.’
