boatpoint, a progressive and expanding boat sales business founded by national marina group boatfolk, has partnered with Yamarin, one of the most distinguished Nordic boat brands with products that combine reliability, comfort and timeless style.
The partnership’s first boat is the Yamarin 88 DC Premium, which has arrived at boatpoint Portland and is the only example of this model available to view in the UK. Offering enhanced luxury and power, the Premium version of Yamarin’s flagship model (priced from £153,000 with a Yamaha six-cylinder 300HP outboard engine) stands out with its sporty good looks both inside and out. With a pair of 16-inch displays in the driver’s console, the two Yamarin Q smart displays enable the helmsman to simultaneously view a full-scale electronic chart on one screen and key engine data on the other. The maximum engine rating for the Yamarin 88 DC Premium has also been increased to 425 hp, allowing customers to specify Yamaha’s most powerful outboard, the new Yamaha XF425 XTO, which is the first ever direct-fuel-injection four stroke and Yamaha’s most powerful outboard.
The Yamarin brand has close ties with Yamaha Motor, the world’s leading outboard engine brand. The Japanese manufacturer has worked with Yamarin for several decades using the Finnish craft for the development and testing of its outboard engine range. One result of this association is that Yamaha outboards perfectly compliment the hull design and balance of the craft resulting in the best possible overall performance of each Yamarin package.
Newly appointed brand manager, Ned Winter, based at boatpoint in Portland comments, “Yamarin fits perfectly into our new boat offering at boatpoint. Here in Portland we benefit from a modern marina including a seven-day a week dry-stack operation. The Yamarin range is extremely well-suited for dry-stacking, and we anticipate continued interest and growth in the 5-9m powerboat market. In addition to new boat sales, we are also delighted to offer boatpoint customers a great rate on a berth at any boatfolk marina where we can also offer ongoing servicing, valeting, and maintenance services.”
Jeff Turner, Marketing Manager at Yamaha Motor UK, comments, “We are delighted to see the flagship Yamarin 88 DC Premium here in the UK with the announcement of boatpoint as an official Yamarin supplier. The qualities of the Yamarin are a perfect match for the waters around the UK and with Yamaha power behind the new partnership this is an exciting time for sportsboat enthusiasts.”
