Pz Sailing acquires Nautique Services

Pierre Barreau-Mainson and his partner Julien Corneleau have been at the head of PZ Sailing for several years. The company, based in La Rochelle, offers pleasure boat rental, but also associated services, such as delivery, provision of skippers or weather training for pleasure boaters. " We have about 50% of sailboats between 10 and 18 metres and 50% of rigid and semi-rigid motorboats. Most of the activity is done in team-building and events. "specifies Pierre Barreau-Mainson.

Since 21/08, the 2 partners have acquired the company Nautique Services, located in the technical area of the port of Les Minimes. They thus complete their activity by selling new and second-hand boats and their maintenance. As a Honda and Suzuki dealer, the company employs a marine mechanic.

Offer a complete service to the yachtsman

With the addition of the 2 activities, the 2 partners see a virtuous logic for the yachtsman and the 2 companies. " We are able to offer a complete service to our customers. There is a synergy in allowing us to sell boats to put them under management / rental and to offer boats for purchase for our charter customers. For the company, the objective is to have the minimum stock on the platform and the maximum number of boats in our management/rental ranges so that prospects can try them out. " explains Pierre Barreau-Mainson.

Reorganize Nautique Services and its boat brands

The new managers want to revive the company's momentum. " We did a major clean-up on site. We have created a showroom to present the annexes, engines and other products. The Grand Pavois, our first show with Nautique Services, allowed us to validate the choice of brands to keep. Other brands will arrive and an online store will be launched in early 2020 on the website we have just redesigned "says Pierre Barreau-Mainson.

Today, Nautique Services sells Suzuki and Honda outboard motor brands, Highfield, Gala, Marsea, 3D Tender powerboats and Aventura catamarans. It has just added Zeppelin semi-rigid and Ader Nautic covering and antifouling films to its portfolio.
