Rayglass Boats appoints Ancasta Group (operating as PB Europe) as official Europe dealer
Rayglass Boats, an award-winning producer of high-performance boats since 1985, has partnered with PB Europe, operating under Ancasta Group, to facilitate the expansion of their Protector Boats brand in new overseas territories. As part of the Ancasta Group, PB Europe will draw upon the company’s extensive brokerage network and recognised service resources to introduce the legendary Protector brand across European territories.
Born in New Zealand, Protector Boats offers some of the world’s best-performing RIBs. And since supplying the first ‘Protector’ 850 to the NZ Coastguard in 1999, the durable and versatile design has evolved into the ultimate utility vessel that is sought-after globally.
Protector Boats are used by the America’s Cup, SailGP events, international sailing teams, and many commercial entities. They are also growing in popularity amongst leisure users looking for a robust adventure boat. The range includes the Chase with an open centre console and the Targa with a cabin hard-top. Both models deliver outstanding performance and comfort: tough luxury.
“We are absolutely thrilled to have Ancasta Group on board as the official dealer for Rayglass Protector Boats in Europe. With the growing demand for Protector products in the continent, it’s great to have such a well-established dealer to represent the Protector Brand in such an important market.”
Rayglass CEO, Dave Larsen
“This dealership agreement is very positive for all; providing Protector Boats sales and aftersales support for customers across Europe will provide consistency and peace of mind throughout. The Ancasta Group, with its extensive European office network and its own dedicated after sales support capability (including Approved Sales and Service Agent for Protector preferred Mercury Marine Engines), is perfectly positioned to provide the very highest standards in service for Protector Boat customers.”
Ancasta Group’s Managing Director, Nick Griffith
