Cruising motoryacht builder Explorer Motor Yachts has appointed dealers to represent the company throughout Europe.
W~Yacht based in Norway has responsibility for Scandinavia and northern Europe including Germany while Explorer Motor Yachts UK represents the brand throughout the UK and southern Europe.
W~Yacht is one of the largest boat sales companies in Norway with its main office in Stavanger on the south-west coast. The business was established in 2007 by Ola André Worre, a former Olympic and professional sailor and member of the Norwegian sailing team for 13 years.
Since the business was established, W~Yacht has sold more than 50 trawler-style motor yachts in the region, boosting it to the biggest trawler sales company in Scandinavia.
W~Yacht also provides a range of additional boating services as well as a storage facility.
“The waters and oceans around Scandinavia and northern Europe are ideal for the coastal cruiser trawlers,” said Mr Worre. “We are delighted to represent the Explorer brand as it represents the best of this style.”
Explorer Motor Yachts UK, based in Southampton, is headed by Mark Seal. He has more than 25 years of experience managing luxury products businesses and has owned boats for more than 20 years.
Mr Seal said was he attracted to the Explorer brand by the classic trawler styling and build quality.
“These are semi-custom motor yachts built to world standard,” he said. “Also important is the range – from the 40-foot single-level sedan through the pilothouse range from 50 to 75 feet and our rugged passage-maker Odyssey models.”
He said Explorer Motor Yachts UK was opening Explorer Information Centres throughout southern Europe.
“The Information centres will act as brokers, supported by our team in Southampton,” said Mr Seal. “We have Centres opened in Southampton, Glasgow and Cyprus with new offices due to open soon in France, Italy and the Canary Islands.”
