There’s nothing better than the view of a brand new yacht arriving into your fleet, and we’ve been lucky enough to welcome not one, but two brand new Dufours in the last two weeks!
As well as the new 430 GL, Rever, we also had the pleasure of welcoming a new 460 GL last week and celebrated with an official naming ceremony at Haslar Marina in Gosport with the help of our brand ambassador, Alex Thomson.
During the Southampton Boat Show, Dream Yacht Charter announced a new charity partnership with local not-for-profit organisation, Oarsome Chance, who support children in the Hampshire area who are disengaged from mainstream education by offering life skills and workplace apprenticeships in the sailing industry as an alternative route to employment. In honour of the charity and thanks to the dedication and assistance a few of their apprentices have provided in the fit out of the new yacht, we are thrilled to officially name her, ‘Oarsome Dream’.
In addition to his role as brand ambassador to DYC, Alex Thomson is also a patron for this amazing charity and joined Oarsome Chance apprentice, Joe Swindale and DYC UK Managing Director, Andy Byham to officially name the yacht in a special event last week, alongside other members of the industry and members of the public. Alex said;
“I’m delighted to be here today to officially name Oarsome Dream. Oarsome Chance has had such a positive impact on so many young people and, by partnering with the organisation, Dream Yacht Charter is now a part of that process, which is great to see.
“Oarsome Chance is not only about improving the lives and prospects of young people; it’s also about contributing to the growth of the marine sector in the UK and providing invaluable opportunities for young people to gain access into the industry. If opportunities such as this can spark interest in even a handful of young people, then I think that’s an incredibly positive step forward.”
The New Dufour 460 GL will join our UK fleet at Port Hamble for charters + corporate sailing and is available to buy on one of our individually tailored ownership programmes here in the UK, with other 460 GL’s being available for purchase in multiple destinations around the world with savings of up the 45%
