Founded by business partners Ben Pugh and Michael Blanch who share over 20 years of invaluable experience in the industry and an unparalleled passion for boating.
The idea of Marine Co was more than just the establishment of a boat dealership; it marked the birth of a tailor-made bespoke boating experience for all clients.
'Our clients' preferences are at the forefront of everything we do, allowing us to provide you with a bespoke experience that truly stands apart.'
Ben and Michael launched a home to help you find your dream boat, featuring only the finest new and used vessels available in the market.
At Marine Co Group, we believe in the importance of creating memories with our loved ones, and we're here to offer you one of the most exceptional ways to do just that - through boating.
Boating, to us, isn't just an activity; it's an experience that brings joy and adventure.
Marine Co Group was built with the core values in mind that they weave passion into every aspect, from assisting you in acquiring your perfect vessel to ensuring its lifelong care and servicing.
At Marine Co Group, we have assembled a team that echoes the same spirit, from our skilled mechanics who treat each vessel as their own, to our dedicated maintenance crew that ensures every voyage is seamless, to our customer service team that listens intently to your needs, and our branding experts who paint our identity with the hues of excellence.
The inspiration behind the business:
