Hyde's new Suffolk agent offers 20% chandlery discount

Friday, June 03, 2011

Hyde Sails is delighted to announce the appointment of a new agent in Suffolk – The Suffolk Marine Centre in Saxmundum, which is celebrating its appointment by offering a special 20% off chandlery purchases to anyone buying a sail before the end of June 2011!

The Suffolk Marine Centre is managed by John McMurtrie, who moved down from Scotland to manage the business in 2010. Now into its seventh year of trading, the Suffolk Marine Centre is an old car showroom on the A12 in Stratford St Andrew, located between Ipswich and Norfolk. John explains: ‘In the shop we have a large range of the best quality and well-known brands on the market providing sailing and leisure clothing and equipment. We also have connections to provide our customers with boat interior design, electronics and rigging. Our plan is to open a sail repair loft next to the shop and also provide winter servicing and storage.’

‘The partnership with Hyde is very exciting and I’m very proud to work alongside a hugely respected company who both myself and my customers can rely on to produce great products,’ said John. ‘Hyde is also very good at providing technical support. Together we can provide a great ‘sails’ package from initial quotations to after sales service. Hyde provides some of the highest quality sails on the market at realistic prices. The accuracy and quality in their manufacturing means every sail produced gives the end user with a fantastic product for either cruising or racing at any level.’

John was brought up in a sailing family and has sailed in many classes and numerous events, including as part of winning crews at Scottish Series and West Highland Week. He explained: ‘I had been trailing my Loch Long down from Scotland to compete in Aldeburgh Regatta Week since 2006 and the love of this event was why I decided to relocate to Suffolk.’

Service is paramount in John’s eyes, as he explained: ‘I personally make sure all orders are made up as soon as possible and get to the customer by the date required. I make it my number one
priority to make customers happy so I will go that extra mile to achieve that.’ He added: ‘To promote our new partnership with Hyde and to support our customers we are offering a 20% discount on any chandlery and selected sailing equipment including Henri Lloyd, Ocean Safety and other selected products to anyone who orders a Hyde sail through us before the end of June 2011.’

The appointment is all part of the growth of Hyde’s local network in the UK.
