Meet the Plymouth team
James ChristianJames Christian joined Ancasta in 2014 and leads our team in Plymouth. Prior to Boat Sales, James enjoyed a successful career as an estate agent in Devon after leaving behind a London-based career in TV Production. It was a life change based on the romantic notion of ‘living closer to the sea’ - not surprising given his mutinous lineage! James spends much of his free time around water – whether it’s flying-the-wire of his beach catamaran, surfing, windsurfing or wake-boarding; getting wet is essential! James’ expertise in Sales and Marketing together with his personable approach has been a key component in the success of our team in our two offices in Plymouth at Queen Anne’s Battery and Plymouth Yacht Haven.
Sian RobsonSian joined the Plymouth office in 2014 on returning from several years in Palma where her husband was the captain of a Swan 82. She had previously lived in Hamble and her marine industry background includes working directly for Beneteau France as UK Operations Manager as well as time spent in marketing with the Westerly, Dufour and J Boat brands. Sian has a huge amount of sailing experience ranging from dinghies to 100’ yachts and from crewing corporate charter events to two 2-handed transatlantic crossings. These days she simply enjoys cruising with her family on their Rustler 36 along the coast of Devon and Cornwall coastline (which if we’re honest is about as good as it gets!) and limits her racing to occasional Classic Yacht regattas in the UK and the Med. As part of the Plymouth team, Sian’s wealth of experience and personal approach instils a confidence in both the seller and buyer alike.
Simon BooteSimon Boote first came to Cornwall as a sailing instructor on the Helford River in the early 1980s. He returned with his family in 2003, having had a career that allowed him to sail all over the world. He took over Ancasta Cornwall (Falmouth and Mylor) in that year and added Ancasta Plymouth to the portfolio in 2007. He remains a passionate sailor both in Cornwall and overseas. He has been a member of the Royal Ocean Racing Club since the mid 1980’s and has competed in many of the world’s premier sailing events. However he is also a proud owner of a Fly-bridge Sports Fishing boat that is “probably one of the most used boats in Cornwall!”
Lee BallLee Ball is a senior broker who joined “team Cornwall” at our office in Mylor in 2010 but actually his connection to Mylor Yacht Harbour started when it was the home for his father’s power boat. Lee has a passion for power having previously enjoyed a successful career in the motor trade. He used to race bikes, annually attends the Le Mans 24 hour race and is a product specialist for our Prestige and Beneteau power brands. However Lee also loves sailing and is a member of Restronguet sailing club where he sails a Laser (sometimes the right way up) and has become an integral part of the boating community in and around Mylor and Falmouth.
