As we all know, splashing out on a brand new boat can be very pricey and it’s hard to make such a big commitment by yourself. With that in mind, it’s highly likely that you’ve had a little browse online at some point in your life in search of a good deal, discount code or even someone to help you out with your purchase. This year Grosvenor Yachts is helping you do exactly that, by starting a brand new assisted purchase scheme for all boating enthusiasts.
The aim is to try and encourage new generations to take up watersports, as well as helping existing sailors to keep going. That means you could get genuine support to add a stylish new RIB to your name, built by one of Europes biggest manufacturers - Valiant. Their RIBs are ideal for a plethora of activities such as education and qualification training, safety demonstrations, as well as recreational cruising. Perfect for any organisation, club or sailing school.
Grosvenor Yachts have taken the time to develop an ‘average user profile’ for the UK maritime community to identify the type of boat that would be typically suitable for all. Off the back of this, they’ve created four separate packages for Valiant boats that you can enquire for, but have said that they’ll be happy to talk about even bigger vessels in certain circumstances.
The deal in question will allow you to get the first 20% of the cost for your new boat covered by Grosvenor yachts, meaning that you could end up saving a significant amount of money. The only thing required in return is a small number of GY logos and text positioned on the tubes of the boat - which only have to be kept for the first three years of ownership. For the amount of money that you could save, this is a great deal.
If you think about this logically, buying a new boat on finance often requires the first 20% to be paid as an upfront deposit - meaning you could potentially walk away without having to pay a penny in your first month!
This deal is open to every organisation in the country that works towards the promotion of watersports, sailing training, maritime education and general aqua health and wellbeing - so don’t hesitate, get in contact right away and get your hands on a Valiant RIB!
You can get access to four different tiered packages labelled for A to D. A is the basic level RIB with no real additional features - this can only really be used for general cruising on inland waterways, so if you’ll require more than this it’s advised to start looking at packages B to D. The details of each deal are below:
If you’re predominantly using inland waterways, these two packages are on offer:
- Pack A – to comply with MGN469 in category A, B and C waters
- Pack B – to comply with MGN469 in category D waters. One of the biggest differences from Pack A is the addition of a liferaft.
If you’re operating anywhere offshore or waters which aren’t categorised, then pick from the following:
- Pack C – to comply with MGN280 rated to category 6. This includes a liferaft, depth sounder, second battery and better compass.
- Pack D – to comply with MGN280 rated to category 3 (Restricted). Some of the main differences from Pack C are a secondary means of propulsion and an additional fixed VHF.
