Euroyachts – Long Established
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.
Ronnie and Angus Scott
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.
Ronnie Scott’s son Angus worked in the business full time from 1981 until the company was sold to Yachts.co in October 2020. In his time in the business Angus ran the UK and Irish distribution of Jeanneau boats from our Hamble office between 1988 and 1992 and more recently was responsible for the development of our Largs Showroom. Angus Scott ran the business from 1994 to 2020.
Sailboat and powerboat sales 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. We have commissioning bases in the South of France and have seen more than twenty new Jeanneau yachts, most above 40ft, being handed over in a single season.
How we operate
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 Jamie Tibbott and David Noble 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. Their increasing range of both sail and power boats offer the market a wide variety of products.

David Noble, based at our Largs HQ, is responsible for general management at Largs as well as brokerage matters. David’s background is solely marine based, having spent 13 years at Duncan Yacht Chandlers in Glasgow.
