Ashton Marine Services sponsor current over 40s St Ayles skiff world champions
Ashton Marine Services have sponsored Boatie Blest at Cockenzie & Port Seton Community Coastal Rowing Club.
Having supplied numerous trailers to the St Ayles Skiff rowing community including the world championship boat Boatie Blest as seen in the below pictures we are delighted to be supporting the current world champions for the over 40s
Currently Ashton Marine Services supply a lot of trailers to this growing community of hand built boats and are very proud to have supplied the trailer for the current world champion’s boat.
Like our other trailers the St Ayles skiff trailers are CAD (computer aided design) drawn that sends a file to robots to cut and the steel. This automated process guarantees accuracy and consistency in the build process before they are galvanised to marine standard. It also enables us to provide St Ayles Skiff trailers and extremely competitive pricing.
With World Champion Andrew Doney and Bronze Medallist Yvonne Murphy
First we would like to say thank you to all of our new clients in 2018 who made this a record year for the business and below are some of our highlights
Trailer sales: a record breaking year helped by the quality of the trailers we sell including Bramber, Snipe, Mersea, Rapide and the stainless steel Vanclaes. Our St Ayles skiff trailers also sold very well and are still around 1/3 rd cheaper than the competition.
Pontoons: We were appointed Scotland’s only Tetradock dealer and this was shown for the first time at the Scottish Boat show
Lanoshield: This amazing pressure washer safe anti-corrosion grease was launched by us and has proved to be a popular solution for mooring, trailers, tools, winches, chain, shackles etc. More news on this soon
Brokerage. Thank you for trusting us with selling your boat. Average powerboat/ rib sales time was less than 3 weeks for all boats advertised between February to November. We still need more boats to sell so if we can be of any help please do get in touch.
Sourcing: This became a big growth area for us as this fixed fee based on results seemed to be a popular option. Average discount achieved was over 20% and boats were sourced from all over the UK including for clients in England and Ireland.
Reviews: We are delighted that we now have over 50 5 star google reviews and around 30 on Facebook. Thank you all for your kind words.
In summery it was an amazing year and thanks for all your support.

Some interesting RIB’s came to the show this year but for most of you I am not sure you would think a few of them are perfect for the Scottish market!!
Remember if you are looking for a west coast rib please call and we will source them for you and if its 2nd hand any changes made can be done by our partner RIB’s Marine Services.
New Show Layout
For us the new layout of the show worked well but please do send us a PRIVATE message on your thoughts so we can pass this on to Inverkip for next year.
Biggest Issues noted
Fuel or bad fuel was high on the list again this year and so was a growing desire for eco-friendly products.
The other issue was the concern of new the quality of new build boats and what makes we expect to stand the test of time.
A Thank you to our partners.
Last but not least we would like to pass our thanks on for all their support:
John@ Tetradock. He braved wind , rain and a long drive to support us and hence a BIG BIG thank you.
Euan at You and Sea: For having the best team of RYA trainers in Scotland and helping so many of our clients.
Craig Reid@ Rib’s Marine Services. As many of you will know we have recommended them a lot this year and to hear the great feedback has confirmed that Craig’s team are the only boat repair/ modification company we recommend. If you have a RHIB or GRP boat that needs some work then this is the place to go.
