We are a long established boat sales organisation located in Scotland with bases at Largs and Troon Yacht Havens. For more than forty years we have been distributors of both Jeanneau sailing and power craft and are presently responsible for Jeanneau distribution in Scotland. We are also the official brokers at Largs and Troon Yacht Havens. At Largs we operate from a custom built Showroom the only one of its kind in the UK. We have been members of British Marine for more than forty years and are members of BRBA.
Our name and that of founder Ronnie Scott has been at the forefront of pleasure craft retailing in the UK since the late sixties.
Ronnie Scott pioneered the use of indoor boat sales premises, part exchange and imported yachts for national distribution as early as 1962 with the still prolific East German Folkboat. Since 1978 we have enjoyed a unique trading relationship with French builders Jeanneau, running the national distribution until 1993, and today are responsible for distribution in Scotland.
Over the years we have been involved in the sale and distribution of products from a remarkable number of other leading European and North American builders. In addition to domestic sales we have enjoyed success overseas, exporting regularly to the Far East and Mediterranean markets. Our commissioning bases in the South of France have seen more than twenty new Jeanneau yachts, most above 40ft, being handed over in a single season.
Our activities are broadly split in two. Dedicated offices at Troon and Largs are responsible for brokerage activities at both Yacht Havens.
New boat sales are handled by Angus Scott at our Largs Showroom HQ where a wide range of new craft can generally be viewed. The principal new boat manufacturer represented by us is Jeanneau of France, whose ever increasing range of both sail and power boats offer the market a wide variety of products. Project management of large custom yacht construction is also undertaken for customers who have “outgrown” the production yards we represent.
Angus Scott took over the general management of the company in 1994 and is based at our new Largs HQ. Having studied small craft construction and boatyard management he spent most of the eighties working between our bases in Southampton, France and Scotland and was responsible for national distribution of Jeanneau between 1988 an 1992.
