HORNING BOAT SHOW

NYA's Chris Cooper addresses the meeting
Organisers of the Horning Boat Show, which is sponsored by NYA, held an open meeting with local residents and businesses on Saturday 26th January.  The popularity of the Boat Show was evident as over a hundred turned out to hear plans and pledge support.  Chairman, Colin Boakes, introduced members of the organising committee and sponsors, unveiling plans for what will undoubtedly be an exciting family experience.  Enquiries from all manner of businesses are coming in thick and fast, with floating berths now fully booked such is the demand for exhibition space.  Volunteer 'Show Shapers' are still needed to assist with the smooth running on the day.  If you would like to be part of the team, you can contact the organiser through the website http://www.horning-boat-show.org

SEALINE SUCCESS

 
Two of the NYA Sales Team attended their first official function with Sealine on Sunday 27th Jaunary.  The demo event, hosted by Sealine South Coast at their superb showroom facility in Hamble, provided a chance for clients to see and try the majority of models in the range.  The boats were put through their paces throughout Saturday and Sunday by Sealine's in-house training skipper, thrilling potential clients with high speed manoeuvres and confident, responsive low speed handling alike.
The weekend was a resounding success for both NYA and Sealine, with cause to open the champagne!  Some East Coast clients succumbed to temptation and ordered a new SC42 which is set to be berthed in Norfolk.  The couple already have an exciting season planned for their new boat.  We wish them sunshine and smiles!

HAINES 32 SEDAN STARS AT LONDON BOAT SHOW

The new Haines 32 Sedan was one of the stars of the London boat show which closed at the weekend. Potential owners, boating journalists and some other manufacturers came along, had a good look and left impressed.
The new safety and comfort features make this an ideal family boat which is why Haines Marine are looking at a healthy order book. One of our show visitors – new to us and the brand – was so quickly converted that we left with another order.
If you weren’t able to get to the show we’ll be happy to arrange for you to see this exciting new boat.  

NYA TO SUPPORT SEALINE ON EAST COAST

Norfolk Yacht Agency has been appointed by Sealine to cover the East Coast of England from Kings Lynn to Ipswich. As well as marketing the Sealine range of fly bridge models and sports cruisers, NYA will provide a support base for commissioning and after sales care.
James Fraser, Managing Director of NYA says he was particularly pleased to have been approached by Sealine: “It is a brand that we are very familiar with. We buy and sell many used Sealine boats each year. The appointment sits well with our Sole UK Dealership for Haines giving us a range of new fly bridge and sports cruiser models which are widely acknowledged to be the most innovative in the industry.”
“As well as our stock of used boats we will now have the benefit of Sealine’s excellent undercover showroom facilities at Hamble point and their comprehensive range of boats in stock.”
NYA technicians are undergoing factory training at Sealine to ensure the highest possible standards of service and maintenance at the Brundall Service Centre.
In welcoming NYA to the their network, Douglas Culverwell, Sales Director of Sealine International stressed the importance of the quality of service: “The company has an excellent service operation that will strengthen Sealine South Coast’s customer service on the East Coast.”
