Friday deadline for PetersOpal sale

And MBM reader wants to hear from you if you risk losing money if company goes under

Potential buyers have until Friday to make a bid for ailing boat dealer PetersOpal.

The company went into administration last week, a month after Sealine announced it had terminated its distribution contract with the firm.

The administrator, KPMG, would not be drawn on what would happen if no buyer came forward by Friday, insisting that “the administrators’ intention is to sell the business as a going concern”.

KPMG is also unsure at this time of just how many boaters had paid deposits to PetersOpal before it went belly up, only saying that a list was currently being collated.

Those who do have deposits with the firm are urged to contact Will Lewis in the Chichester office of PetersOpal on 01243 511381.
