Steve Coultate of Sealine to be new VP

Managing director of Sealine, Steve Coultate, has been announced as the new Vice President of Brunswick Europe.

The announcement comes during a raft of organisational shifts in the European arm of the boat building giant.

Coultate has been MD of the Sealine brand in Europe since 2006 and despite taking on the portfolios for various new brands in Europe, will still control Sealine.

Based at the European headquarters in Brussels he will be responsible for brands such as Boston Whaler, Valiant, Trophy, Quicksilver and Arvor.

Coultate says: “I am looking forward to the new challenge and am delighted to be taking on this role at time when both Sealine and Brunswick Marine in Europe are moving forward so decisively.

“There has been some significant rationalisation over the last nine months to achieve an efficient operational footprint that has manufacturing capabilities in the UK, Poland and Portugal.

“These will remain at the core of the business as we move forward.”
