New director at yacht brokerage

Directors Simon Carter and Tristan Vivian with Devon office broker Ross Mack

Red Ensign, one of the West Country’s largest independent yacht and motorboat brokerages, has welcomed a new director and shareholder.

Tristan Vivian brings more than 20 years’ marine industry experience to the business. His background includes a key role in the refitting of Mirabella V (now M5) and nearly a decade in marina operations and management.

“It’s great to be joining an established and highly professional yacht brokerage and I’m confident that I can really make a difference,” he said.

“We have a strong and experienced team at Red Ensign which is good news for anyone buying or selling a boat because we can help to navigate them through the challenges that have arisen post-Brexit and help them to complete their sale or purchase while minimising any risks.”

Red Ensign, which has offices in Plymouth and Falmouth, is the sole international broker for pre-owned Rustler, Bowman and Starlight yachts.
