It is a partnership which, since its formation ten years ago, has rapidly turned into a success story. From their headquarters in Swanwick Marina in Southampton, Matthew Attree and Richard Hewett quickly turned their company Clipper Marine into one of Bavaria Yachts’ most successful dealerships. In 2015, we were joint winners of the Motor Boat and Yachting’s Motor Boat Award and just one year later, Clipper Marine also became the official dealership for Bavaria Yachts in Spain. With a total of four offices in Great Britain and three in Spain, Clipper Marine has an extensive dealership and service network in Europe.
