Boat sales company Key Yachting under new ownership

Key Yachting is under new ownership after being purchased by Wayne Palmer and Hayley Quinn from Thinking Space Systems.

Key Yachting is a family-run boat sales company and was founded in 1996 by Marie-Claude Heyswith and her late husband Paul. It is the sole UK distributor for J Boats, Grand Soleil, Nautitech Catamarans and Tofinou.

Marie-Claude Heyswith, who competed in four Figaro campaigns and two Whitbread Round the World Races, commented:

Thinking Space Systems is a global provider of high-quality technical furniture for control rooms of all industries, and was founded in 2003 by Wayne Palmer. With its head office in Romsey, Hampshire, it also has offices in Australia, Canada and the USA.

Hayley Quinn is an experienced qualified accountant with a passion for managing leisure-focused businesses.

Wayne is a keen sailor, having competed in two Fastnet Races, and currently races his J/109 Flying Jackal. He believes there is a natural fit between his business and the boat sales company.

He commented:

Key Yachting Sales Director Hannah Le Prevost, who has been an integral part of the business for 11 years, will mentor the new owners into the business.
