Company: Atlantic Yachts, Sea Ventures
Business Type: Boat Sales
Sea Ventures (UK) was originally founded in 1961 as a yacht charter business and transitioned to boat sales in the early 1990s. The company has represented the Jeanneau brand in the UK for more than 30 years and has won multiple Dealer of the Year awards. With headquarters on the River Hamble, the Sea Ventures organisation has supplied new and used yachts to multiple generations of boat owners.
Atlantic Yachts, founded in 2018, is a newer venture with the same calibre of experience and the same determination to provide world-class sales and customer service. The company has offices at MDL’s Queen Anne’s Battery in Plymouth, and now at the new Noss Marina on the River Dart.
Paul Blanc, General Manager of Jeanneau Group, said:
”The alliance of Sea Ventures and Atlantic Yachts under a shared corporate umbrella, makes perfect sense and is aligned with the corporate vision we have for our diverse group.
“Both companies are successful and important time-served partners within Jeanneau and Beneteau Group, and together they will provide a strong partnership to present our products to market in a professional manner with strong after-sales and technical support. We wish the partnership a successful future which we look forward to supporting.”
Nigel Colley, Managing Director of Sea Ventures, added:
“The Jeanneau organisation has grown in style and substance over recent years, and we are able to offer nine different brands of yachts and powerboats these days, with seven of these from within the Beneteau Group of companies.
“By collaborating with Atlantic Yachts, we can extend our market reach and further improve the level of service and boating experience we provide.”
Rob Cross, Managing Director of Atlantic Yachts, continued:
“The timing of this transaction is perfect as it supports our expansion into brand new premises on the beautiful River Dart. Together, we will create new opportunities and be a market-leading boat retailer and service provider.”
Ian Atkins, Chairman of Colburt Marine Group, concluded:
“The scope of Jeanneau’s offering these days is second to none and this initiative brings new levels of availability, service and support in the south of the UK. We can’t wait to get started.”
