Three new Elvstrøm dealers
As part of their new Authorised Dealer programme, Elvstrøm Sails UK have announced three new south coast dealers.
Parkstone Bay Yachts based in Poole, Octagon Marine Canvas and Sail based in Queen Anne’s Battery Marina, Plymouth and Stephenson Sails & Covers in Noss Marina, Dartmouth have all recently signed up to the programme.
As part of the scheme, the new Dealers receive a full sail design and specification service together with technical support from Elvstrøm’s Hamble loft, as well as a kit of marketing and promotional materials. As an Authorised Dealer, the companies are responsible for local advertising and promotion, and providing a high level of customer support to existing and new customers, including providing advice, information and a measuring up service to ensure a fit first time result.
Jan Eagle of Octagon Marine Canvas and Sail said, “Becoming an Authorised Dealer and adding the Elvstrøm Sails brand and range of high quality cruising and racing sails to our services is a very useful extension to our business. It will give us a greater range of products to offer our existing customers and give us opportunities to approach new customers.”
Dave Richards, Sail Consultant for Elvstrøm said “We are delighted to welcome our next three south coast Authorised Dealers, so soon after starting the scheme. All three are well situated and have the right culture and customer approach that fits with Elvstrøm Sails. We are now seeking to expand the scheme up the east and west coast, in the North and into Scotland too.”
