Hot off the press, welcome to this – our first chapter of 2021! The entire Berthon Sales Group team wish you all a Happy New Year! After a successful 2020, despite its challenges, we are looking forward to a brighter 2021 for all.
The Berthon Sales Group HQ, in Lymington UK, begin the year in lockdown, with the sales team working from home, keeping in touch with clients and still showing yachts remotely. As ever, the mantra is to ‘Keep Calm and Carry on!’ and there is always much to do. Now that Brexit is finally settled, the UK can plan better going forward and most importantly offer clients advice and support on what this means for yachting and VAT. We recently helped answer the question ‘In which jurisdiction, in the EU or UK, is it best to pay VAT on your yacht?’.
Berthon Spain has hit the ground running this year! The new sales office in Palma welcomed Berthon International’s Ben Toogood at the end of 2020. He has relocated to Palma to join Managing Broker Simon Turner and in a short space of time, has already done wonders in building the motor yacht sales division there.
All our offices find themselves battling similar COVID-19 restrictions, and yet have continued to sell yachts, provide outstanding client service and support through the crisis and find time to strengthen and grow. Berthon Scandinavia recently welcomed a new broker, Frederik Sundberg to their team. Berthon France continue to astound with their representation of Windy Boats. And Berthon USA, who continue to sell Moody’s hand over fist, and who recently became East Coast USA agents for Sealine Yachts are looking to a new President to steady the ship in 2021.
We are happy to report that The Berthon Collection was recently published – a fine selection of our yachts for sale and a showcase of each of our international offices.
With fair winds from the whole Berthon Team! Please stay safe and well.
