ePropulsion expands UK dealer network
ePropulsion UK are experiencing significant growth in 2021 and have recently signed up 15 new dealers.
As the United Kingdom distributors for ePropulsion, the innovative, eco-friendly brand of electric marine motors, the company has a new focus on distributing primarily through retail outlets.
Headed up by MD Steve Bruce, the UK team are selecting new accounts to provide a good geographic spread for consumers. Ranging from Ardfern Yacht Centre in Argyll, Anglia Yacht Brokerage in Suffolk, Cornish Marine in Truro, eSolent on Hayling Island and Marine & General in the Channel Islands, the rapid growth of the network comes as no surprise.
Steve comments,“Enquiries have been going through the roof since early in lockdown, so we made the decision to no longer handle direct orders and focus entirely on supporting our dealer network. Last year was a brilliant year, our best ever. However, this year we have already exceeded what we did in the whole of last year in the first few months.”
The business is also in discussion with a number of boat manufacturers about the ePropulsion range of electric outboards and POD drives for inboard propulsion, for boats ranging from small tenders to 50’+ cruising yachts.
In order to support the dealer network from their Hamble base, ePropulsion UK will soon be moving to a larger local premises which includes offices, a workshop and training facilities.
