Brexit: British yachting is worried about the uncertainty of the vote

What future for pleasure boating with Brexit?

British Marine, the British boating industry union, has expressed concern about the outcome of the parliamentary vote on Brexit. There are still too many unanswered questions for yachting in the UK.

British yachting is worried about a Brexit without agreement

The British House of Commons, meeting in Westminster on 15 January 2019, again rejected the draft agreement between the United Kingdom and the European Union. While Prime Minister Theresa May escaped the motion of censure tabled on 16 January, the conditions for British people to leave Europe remain unclear. The head of government must negotiate a new agreement before the March deadline.

The CEO of British Marine, the union of British yachting manufacturers, Lesley Robinson, is concerned about the possibility of a Brexit without an agreement. " Like many industries throughout the United Kingdom, we do not support the idea of a scenario in which the United Kingdom would leave the European Union without agreement. It is vital for our members to have stability for their business as the United Kingdom and the EU negotiate the details of their future relationship.

Essential details to be clarified for yachting in UK-EU relations

Lesley Robinson pointed out that important elements remain to be defined in the conditions of future trade between the two shores of the Channel. " There are still many unanswered questions for our industry, such as the payment of VAT for boats already on the European market. It is crucial that answers are provided on these issues and that we have time to implement these solutions. "The manager therefore calls for a plan that will benefit the British boating industry. " British Marine calls on members of the British Parliament to put aside their political differences and work together quickly to find a plan that provides security for the UK maritime sector and protects jobs, growth and investment.
