This year has seen a lot of changes economically and politically throughout the world.  The yachting industry reflects these changes and the most significant factor at play is currency shift.   Brexit has led to a weaker £ and the is also weak against the US$.  We have been working with our UK and French office successfully to take advantage of these factors and have sold a significant number of European brokerage yachts to our USA client base this year.

Because we have offices on both sides of the Atlantic, the logistics of shipping a yacht to the USA are easily managed.  We have a full serviced yard in the UK employing 100 skilled craftsmen on the shop floor and a full infrastructure in place in the Mediterranean.  For those who wish to cruise in Europe before crossing the Atlantic, we are able to advise on title, VAT as well as the best cruising grounds in the area.

September sees some key events in the UK, and we would like to invite you to participate.

The lighthouse is fully operational, and is therefore not usually open to the public.  However, Berthon clients have been offered the unique opportunity to have a guided tour to the top of the lighthouse, where the views of the Solent promise to be nothing short of spectacular.  (For those keen to take advantage of this special offer, prior notice must be given and a small fee will apply on the day).

The town of Lymington has a Georgian high street which is intact and it is a bustling place full of eateries and it has a market every Saturday…

At the bottom of the high street, a cobbled street with shops leads down to the quayside…
