#boatsales – Last week's Southampton Boat Show resulted in new boat sales totalling €600k for one Irish boating firm who say the four new craft sold – in an equal split between sail and power boats – will be coming home to Ireland.
The uplifting news comes from leading Irish boat sales firm BJ marine who operate from Bangor, Malahide and Greystones on the Irish East coast.
The Beneteau Antares 30 (pictured above) was sold at last week's UK show and is one of four new boats sold by the firm that are coming back to Irish waters. The Antares 30 is the show display model and will arrive back into Greystones Harbour marina in County Wicklow during October.
BJ Sales Manager James Kirwan says the show also created massive interest in second hand boats, continuing the trend of the last 12 months where well presented brokerage boats are selling quickly through BJ's three Irish offices.
