Some helpful information in order to ensure that you have the best possible visit
We have summarised your one day handover schedule here, but we’d be very happy to arrange a second day with further support if you wish. Our team can discuss and arrange this with you on an individual basis.
9.00 Arrival – your Sales Manager will welcome you in our main reception, you’ll have an opportunity to meet the team and have a coffee before the day starts.
09.30 On the dock – you’ll be taken to your new boat and be introduced to your Handover Technician who has been commissioning and preparing everything for your handover. They will spend the day familiarising you with the various systems on board, with detailed overviews from electronics and engine specialists.
13.00-14.00 Lunch - and a chance for a pause!
14.00 Sea trial – our Technician will take you out on the Solent, so you can familiarise yourself with your boat and systems and check everything is to your total satisfaction.
16.00 Back on the dock – you will have the opportunity to meet your dedicated Aftersales team who will be on hand to answer any queries you might have post-handover. They’ll also give you an introduction to our interactive snagging App “Pinpoint”, and run through the warranty system.
17.00 Paperwork – we’ll then take you back to the sales office to collect the boat papers and sign the final documentation, then the boat will be officially yours!
Please note these timings may vary depending on your requirements, and we may need to move the sea trial to the morning if the weather forecast is more favourable.
What to bring
As we will head out on the water for a sea trial, you may want to bring warm clothing as it can be surprisingly chilly out there.
Things to organise prior to handover day
As you will take ownership at the end of your handover, you should consider the following and may need to have plans in place:
- Safety equipment if you are providing any safety equipment yourself such as lifejackets, please remember to bring them with you on the day.
- Insurance our insurance cover will end on handover day, so you will need to arrange your own insurance cover to start on that day.
- Berthing as handover is normally planned for a Friday, it might be possible for us to arrange a berth over the weekend if needed. If this is something you’d be interested in please let us know, and we can make arrangements in advance.
- Personal equipment with the exception of any safety kit needed for the sea trial, we will be happy to help you unload your car at the end of the day, so as not to delay your schedule.
If you need help organising any of this, or have any questions please do not hesitate to ask our Commissioning team.
