Delivery times Allures and Garcia

Our colleagues in France seem to have weathered the Covid Storm well so far, production continues with minimal delay on new orders and a production line of orders looking very healthy into 2022 and beyond.  Current build delayed only 6-8 weeks on year+ builds, build regulations mean not more than two working on a yacht at any time, the work shifts being staggered (starting early and finishing late) to maximise the working day and build processes.

In this period the Grand Large Yachting Group who own all the brands have launched ‘Blue Water Cruising’ Webinars in both French and English that have been received and welcomed by approx 6,000 enthusiastic individuals.  With speakers such as Jimmy Cornell and Pete Goss they were not disappointing.  In launching the ‘digital meeting place for blue water cruising enthusiasts’ they are ahead of the game.  Tune in on Thursday 9th for the last in this series, more to come in September !   Click here to Register
