From time to time we would like to keep in touch and email you the following:
This month we make our triumphant return with this bumper post-GDPR edition of the Berthon eNews.
GDPR brought with it a number of trials – chiefly, in our case, consolidation of all the lovely consents we’ve received in the last two months. With this in mind, we apologise sincerely if you’ve received this eNews in error and suggest you hit that unsubscribe button if this is the case. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any problems.
Fair winds and good sailing.
Regardless of a beating by the ‘Beast from the East’, her lesser cousin, and the build up to the Easter weekend – Berthon HQ is still here – bringing you all the news for the month of March.
With month 2 of 2018 under our belts, we cannot believe how fast this year is going. In terms of the ‘Berthon News’, it has been a banner month for new content, and with this sheer number of articles – we hope that something catches your eye.
Happy New Year and welcome to 2018. We hope that you all had a splendid celebration, and are now looking forward to some rest, relaxation AND news from the Berthon Group.
It’s not common that we ask you to pay close attention to a particular article, as each have their own merits, but this month, we’ve confirmed our commitment to being GDPR ready by May 25th 2018 . Please give the article below a read, as it’s very likely to be the first of many times we’ll attempt to contact you regarding the subject.
And so comes the last of our Berthon blog/eNews announcements for 2017. We’d like to thank all of our dedicated readers. It’s our pleasure to produce this content for you on a monthly basis. Please do expect more of the same, bright and early, January 2018!
In the meantime… We wish you fair winds and good sailing this holiday season.
This month we think the sheer number of articles speaks for how busy we are, across all facets of the Berthon Group – Yacht Sales, Shipyard and Marina. Not ones to mix words, we suggest you read on. We won’t take up any more of your time… Enjoy!
With a shed load of movement at our Berthon HQ – in the brokerage, our big blue sheds, and afloat on the marina, this month (as of the 29th specifically) we’re enjoying the extra hour in bed!
As the cold is setting in, we’d like to draw your attention again to our Berthon Weather Station, mounted atop the Berthon offices in Lymington marina, and whose data can be found here.
We’re writing to you this month with a ‘Boat Show’ edition of our monthly eNews. The season is well underway – with the Cannes, Southampton AND Newport Boat show under our belts, and Dusseldorf soon to follow. We’d like to draw your attention to our Collection catalogue (also announced below) that this year carries the entirety of our international brokerage fleet; all of whom are available to see, touch, and write a cheque for 24/7. The event has a new format this year, running until the 31st of December 2017.
It’s been another busy month at our Berthon, Lymington HQ – with the Autumn (and accompanying boat shows) on the horizon. Movement in all facets of our business is brisk – with works happening in the yard throughout the summer (100% up on two years ago) and M shed already full for autumn work), a sold out marina this August bank holiday weekend after a very high summer demand and, to cap it all, a record yacht brokerage and new boat sales across all 3 of our offices this year.
The summer is certainly whistling by, and if you believe the literature, we seem to be on track for a glorious August; ‘mega-heatwaves’? We’ll believe it when we see it!
The Round the Island Race has now been and gone – and if you’ve happened to find yourself living out on the water, some mid-season polish might be in order.
Not one to skimp on what’s becoming a time-honoured tradition, we can’t help but start this month’s eNews with a report on the weather.
In a short space of time, at our Lymington HQ, we’ve gone from seemingly record achieving heat wave to torrential downpours – oh what it is to be British, but great for our gardens!
In what seems to have become a consistent trend in our correspondence over the last few months, we’re happy to report the sun, this month, has most definitely had his hat on – leaving us all reaching for the factor 50 and wondering how long it’ll last!
With the Easter holidays under our belts, and a yachting season now very much underway, we’ve welcomed the wall to wall sunshine this April at our Berthon Lymington HQ, which has quickly become a hive of activity with sold boats readying to leave with boatyard work and victualling preparations afoot for long (and short) distance voyages planned.
The clocks have sprung forward, spring is most definitely in the air, and the season is edging ever closer – and we’re sure, like us, you can’t wait! We’ve had a busy month and our eNews is packed to the gunwales with yacht sales-related fare, which we hope will be enticing to prospective sailors and intrepid adventurers alike.
It’s hard to believe that we are into month 3 of 2017 so quickly. Now in the wake of Storm Doris, we wish you the best on your sailing adventures, and of course, offer our skills in all things yacht service, repair or refit related. With the new season well on its way, there is no better time than to offer your pride and joy some much needed TLC!
Berthon would like to wish all our clients a very Happy, if a little belated, New Year! Judging by the first few weeks’ enquiries and sales we have high hopes for 2017. Our Lymington HQ is currently at the mercy of weather entirely customary for January in the British Isles(!), but we’re champing at the bit for a new season on the water just over the horizon – and we’re sure, like us, you can’t wait.
