There couldn't be a better time than now!
The canal network has started to re-open, demand for boats has stayed strong. Prices have remained strong and sales are going through quickly.
All you need to do is contact one of us in the sales team for a friendly discussion to see how we can help or organise a free valuation with ourselves.
Just over a month ago, our MD Robert Parton visited Emsworth Marina. Robert is part of the British Marine board and often assesses some apprentices work at different marinas which was his reason for visiting.
During his visit, Robert got chatting to Jessie Wooden. Jessie is a member of the front-of-house office staff and can be found behind the desk, on the phone, or out on the yard lifting boats out of the water (there isn’t much that Jessie doesn’t get involved in!). Whilst Robert was there, Jessie expressed an interest in understanding how an inland marina works as opposed to a coastal marina, so what better way for her to learn than have her come and visit for a week?!
After a discussion with Jessie’s manager, a date was set for Jessie to travel from Emsworth to Nantwich (over 200 miles away and 3.5 hours!). Jessie arrived at Aqueduct on Sunday 20th June and stayed over in a local hotel. It’s fair to say come Monday morning and once all of the Aqueduct staff had arrived, it was as if Jessie had been here forever.
Jessie started her week in the office with the Aqueduct team, learning our systems, CRM and seeing how our processes work. Then throughout the rest of the week, Jessie well and truly got stuck into all aspects of the role, especially on the yard! Jessie came armed with her steel-capped toe boots and her high vis vest ready to help with the gantry lift and all yard maintenance. Although we didn’t manage to get her on the tractor moving any boats! A few of our team took Jessie out for a meal one evening and showed her the sights of Nantwich town, we think she fully enjoyed being a tourist in Cheshire!
We would like to say a huge thank you to Jessie for coming up and thank you for all your hard work. We will miss you and we hope to see you soon!
There are talks for a member of staff or 2 from Aqueduct to also go on a job swap down at Emsworth Marina, so watch this space!
