YouBoat Swanwick will sell a full range of leading brand marine equipment to visitors and berthholders. A raft of new services include longer opening hours of 8am until 5pm, which will be particularly handy for shoppers picking up groceries from YouBoat’s newly introduced food and drink section.  As well as visiting the store, buyers can enjoy the convenience of a new ‘click and collect’ service for goods ordered online from the YouBoat website.  Berthholders can even arrange for goods to be delivered straight to their boats on the marina.  Swanwick Marina is part of Premier Marinas and YouBoat are extending their 10% discount scheme on selected items to all Premier Marinas’ berthholders. 

The new YouBoat store will be managed by Jane Sheehan, who was previously manager of YouBoat Gosport, so she brings with her a wealth of experience in retail service and customer care. YouBoat Swanwick is situated on the former Force 4 Chandlery site.

YouBoat Swanwick and YouBoat Gosport are part of SeaFront Marine Group which also owns Nick Cox Yacht Chandler in Lymington.  SeaFront Marine Group Managing Director Richard Besse, explains “We are delighted to be opening the latest addition to our chandlery group in Swanwick.  The new YouBoat store is located in the UK’s most central position for leisure boating.” 

He adds “The acquisition of the Swanwick site is in line with the Group’s growth strategy of seeking out marine retail and distribution businesses in strategic locations and enabling them to benefit from our management structure and expertise.  SeaFront Marine Group is privately funded and we view our portfolio businesses as long term assets.”
