Poole-based super yacht manufacturer Sunseeker International has just signed a deal with Volkswagen Group Leasing, part of Volkswagen Financial Services (UK), to acquire eight commercial vehicles, with the prospect of procuring a further eight in the future.
The contract worth over £220,000 will deliver a mixture of Volkswagen Transporter and Crafter vans. These are supplied on a five year service and maintenance contract hire agreement.
The contract was a joint win for both Volkswagen Group Leasing and its regional van dealership, Breeze – Poole.
The first vehicles were delivered in July and will be used to transport yacht parts and personnel. The vans will be replacing Sunseeker’s existing commercial vehicles.
Mark Garside, the transport manager at Sunseeker explained why he chose both Volkswagen Group Leasing and Breeze –Poole. “Volkswagen commercial vehicles are renowned to be efficient and reliable and so the decision on what vehicles to choose was easy,” he said.
“However selecting a partner to supply and maintain the vehicles, whilst sticking to a budget was harder. Right from the start I was aware of the benefits of going with a local van centre, but the fact that they have a seamless relationship with Volkswagen Group Leasing who provided a very competitive finance package with after-sales care, sealed the deal.”
Volkswagen Group Leasing and Breeze – Poole will continue to work with Sunseeker when they acquire further vehicles.
