Absolute and UK distributor Ocean Nautic part ways

Ocean Nautic MD says agreement will end this season, adding that company is focusing on greener, semi-displacement boats

Boat dealer Ocean Nautic today announced that its long-standing distribution deal with Italian sportscruiser manufacturer Absolute was coming to an end.

The dealer will now focus its energies on selling long-distance, semi-displacement cruisers after being appointed the European importer for Outer Reef motoryachts.

Outer Reef boats are part of American Global Yacht Group, whose other brands Ocean Nautic will also act on behalf of in the UK.

Outer Reef trawler yachts are not well known in this country, but like many other boats of their kind are built in Taiwan. The range currently runs from 58ft to 115ft.

Ocean Nautic’s MD, Trevor White, said: “Over the last year or so we have seen a shift in many of our clients’ expectations with regards to greener technology and more fuel efficient yachts. I am delighted that we have aligned ourselves and formed partnerships with some very proactive companies in this area.”
