New deal for Styles
Magic Marine is changing distribution within the British market with new support and an exciting new range of technical sailing gear. Magic Marine have appointed former Olympic sailor, Hugh Styles, and his company Time On the Water as the UK distributor to develop the brand.
Styles, and fellow Time On the Water director, David Lush will be introducing the new Magic Marine range at major regattas, shows, and events throughout the UK this year, with a special emphasis on supporting clubs and classes.
Magic Marine have appointed Styles and his team to follow on as UK agents and distributors, from a successful 10 years of introducing the range into the UK by skiff sailor, Alex Tobutt. An agreement has been reached between MBrands International and Alex Tobutt to hand over distribution. It has been agreed between both parties that they would like to pursue the market in different directions and Alex has handed over control of the business in a positive manner, wishing Time On the water well for their future working with Magic Marine.
Hugh Styles successes include Laser European championships, Tornado Olympian and prominent skipper on the Extreme 40 catamaran racing circuit.
The Magic Marine range will be available at selected retail outlets. The UK operation will be fully supported by the new UK Company, as well as the parent company MBrands International. Alex Tobutt has worked to hand over all contacts in a positive manner. As of today, Alex will cease his duties and we are in a position to move forward as your sole point of contact for Magic Marine.
One of the first initiatives for Magic Marine UK will be racing a Laser SB3 this season, which will be used to introduce up and coming young sailors into the world of keelboat sailing.
