Following the publication of the Government's Roadmap for Reopening Business, MGM Boats at Dun Laoghaire Harbour have introduced systems and procedures that the marine brokerage firm will be implementing for its sales department until further notice.
The process of shopping for a boat during this Covid-19 crises will involve understanding changes to our day to day operational procedures, MGM Boats Gerry Salmon told Afloat.
The firm, who are agents for Jeanneau, Prestige and Lagoon catamarans and who also have a large range of used boats on brokerage, confirmed to Afloat that 'identifying, purchasing, sea trialling and servicing a boat is still possible with proper preparation'.
"We believe that through the effective use of technology, it won’t be long before customers find themselves at the helm, enjoying the best of social distancing on the water".
SOCIAL DISTANCING BOAT SHOPPING
Instead of dropping by its showrooms and boatyard, MGM Boats are asking customers to adhere to a checklist (downloadable below).
As Afloat reported previously, the company have also implemented similar procedures for its boat servicing dept. The firm operates the only dedicated boat hoist on Dublin Bay, with the ability to lift craft up to 50–Tons.
