Busy Times for Leinster Boats

26th December 2021

The lead into Christmas has been busy for Leinster Boats with buyers getting themselves set up for the coming season and with the new pandemic challenges the sailing community face.

In the run into Christmas here are a few of the sales that have taken place:

  1. Sigma 33 OOD SOLD.
  2. Elan 31 SOLD.
  3. J80 SOLD to buyers in The Netherlands. As part of our comprehensive broker service, Leinster Boats facilitated having this boat delivered to Dublin Port for onward shipping.
  4. Impala 29 SOLD. Launched Christmas week and sailed away from Dun Laoghaire by a happy new owner.

Also, a Firefly Fleet (below) was sold on behalf of a Third Level College to a Sailing Club in the UK. Leinster Boats facilitated the loading and transport logistics for the new owners.

At Leinster Boats we have a significant log of keen purchasers. If thinking of selling, talk to Ronan at Leinster Boats, (086 2543866. [email protected]) a member of Network Yacht Brokers with 30 offices across the €U & UK.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all who go Afloat.
