The Challenge

Blue Lagoon Marine in Poole provides a number of marine services, including boat storage, sales and professional yacht brokerage.

With expansion plans to become an appointed dealer for new selected brands, the business intended to import RIBs from China. Unable to find sufficient information through their own research, the company joined British Marine specifically for expert advice from the technical team. 



How we helped Blue Lagoon Marine to expand business with confidence

Ben’s research left him with inadequate information on how to set up the new importing arm of his business. He was also worried about potential regulation changes following the end of the Brexit transition period. British Marine’s technical team distilled the vast amount of information provided by Government and gave Blue Lagoon Marine concise, marine-specific, guidance on which regulations and procedures to follow.

The technical team gave Ben the reassurance that all legal requirements would be met, thereby avoiding possible future costs associated with inadequate processes. Actioning his business extension plans, British Marine has helped Ben to reach a point where he can place his RIBs order in China, thus increasing the business’s future revenue by widening its product offer.

I was very impressed by the solid advice that I received from the technical team. Their guidance and expertise allowed me to proceed with my business expansion plans. It’s also reassuring to have access to expert advice should any questions arise in the future. Although I’ve only recently joined, the membership has already shown its value.
