Dutch yard ends relationship with Linssen Yachts UK to go into business with Boat Showrooms
Dutch yard Linssen Yachts has appointed Boat Showrooms as its sole UK dealer after two years of selling through Linssen Yachts UK.
Enquiries about Linssen’s range of steel craft can be made at any one of Boat Showrooms’ offices, but the main sales focus will be on the company’s special ‘Dutch Steel Centre’ at Shepperton Marina on the Thames.
The appointment of Boat Showrooms comes exactly two years after Linssen parted company with former dealer Berthon in order to go into business with Linssen Yachts UK, a company set up specifically to sell the range in this country.
It’s not known why Linssen has chosen to end its relationship with Linssen Yachts UK, but the move comes off the back of the company’s best ever month in May, when it sold 20 boats.
Linssen commercial director Yvonne Linssen said: “We chose Boat Showrooms because of their good reputation and their long association with new and used steel boats in the UK, going back for over 25 years, and I believe they were instrumental in bringing Dutch steel boats to the British market.”
Rob Marsh, MD of Boat Showrooms, said: “To underline this new involvement, Boat Showrooms will be exhibiting two of the latest Linssen models at the Southampton Boat Show later this year and we look forward to meeting new and existing Linssen owners during the show.”
