#mgmboats – Go ahead yacht broker MGM boats of Dun Laoghaire features in this morning's Irish Times in a piece entitled 'Setting sail for calm waters of recovery'. In it co-founder Martin Salmon describes how the company has recently established two new bases in the Mallorca and Portugal and how the business has evolved in recession. 'We're now estate agents for boats', he told journalist Mark Paul.
As previously reported by Afloat.ie, the Irish marine firm has currently 300 boats on its books and has expanded by attending international boat shows. Salmon expects numbers on its listings to rise in the coming seasons. A welcome bonus is the return of some Irish folk to boating.
