Exciting news from Trafford Yachts

After having now completed 20 years as Jeanneau main agents for Devon and Cornwall and seen the pleasure boat market change beyond recognition over the two decades from almost all sail boats to 90% power boats, Richard and Jen Trafford have decided the time is right to hand over the reins.

From the 1st of September 2018, Rob Cross has taken over the Jeanneau agency for Devon and Cornwall.Many will already know Rob from when working for ‘Westways’ several years ago. Since then he has gone on to be highly successful as a Beneteau dealer in Plymouth and the chance to move back to the Jeanneau brand with outboard, inboards and also sail boats was an opportunity not to be missed!

Richard will continue to work on the sailboats side of the new business and it will be very much business as usual with Mark our fantastic engineer keeping on top of warranty, maintenance and commissioning. Vicky will be in the office taking care of admin, warranty and spare parts. Many of you will have met our in house ‘salty sea dog’ Ed, on hand to give advice and tuition if and when needed.


We would like to thank all our customers for their support and assure you that Rob and his team will provide the same high levels of service we have worked hard to deliver, we wish him all the very best and look forward to seeing the new business grow under his excellent stewardship. The business will continue using the trading name Trafford Yachts (a trading name of Atlantic Yachts SW Ltd)

Inevitably there will be some new branding in the forth coming months as we transition and modernise the business. We have also moved to a new office with better internet above the Sound Bites Cafe (but still in QAB) at Queen Anne's Battery.
