The UK’s largest narrow boat brokers, selling over 250 narrow boats a year, Whilton Marina based in Northamptonshire and Venetian Marina in Cheshire has appointed Burton-based diesel injection firm Key Diesels engine supplier and repairer. The deal will see Key Diesels providing remanufactured and refurbished units to the respective marinas.
Whilton and Venetian marina became frustrated at the lack of reliable specialists on the waterways. The two marinas chose Key Diesels as their preferred supplier of re-built engines as they are professional, efficient and will refurbish any narrow boat engine within a short space of time.
Further more the two marina’s are also offering two months free River Canal Rescue breakdown and recovery membership as an additional perk for new owners with every boat they sell, this will enhance the overall buying experience. RCR acquired Key Diesels in 2014 and since then has built its reputation for excellence. Managing Director, Stephanie Horton, comments: “We’re thrilled to be working in partnership with Whilton and Venetian Marina; they were looking for a company they could trust to support the on going refurbishment of customers’ boats and we were looking to develop our business-to-business relationships in this area. It’s a win, win scenario for all involved”.
Whilton Marina’s workshop manager, Mathew Emery, agrees: “We started using Key Diesels in 2016 and after a recent visit to their operation early in 2017, decided the firm would be our preferred supplier. We look forward to a long and beneficial relationship that delivers unrivalled after-sales service to our customers.”
