British motor yacht manufacturer, Fairline Yachts, announces Ben Sangster as its new International Sales Manager – Europe. Ben will be responsible for Fairline’s European sales operations and managing its extensive European dealer network.
Ben Sangster has been in the marine industry since 1993 and has been a core member of the Fairline team for over 15 years. For the past ten years he has held the post of Fairline’s Chief Commissioning Engineer, bringing with him a wealth of knowledge and expertise about the Fairline brand and its range of yachts.
Having been responsible for hundreds of high-profile customer yacht handovers, Ben has hugely valuable experience in understanding the requirements of Fairline’s varied customer base.
Ben Sangster comments, “It is a truly exciting time to be taking the next step of my career with Fairline. We have two thrilling boat launches coming up at the Cannes Yachting Festival, where I am looking forward to meeting many of Fairline’s customers and supporting our European dealership network to deliver sustainable sales growth and exploring opportunities in new markets.”
Ben’s appointment continues the development of Fairline’s corporate sales team, which was significantly strengthened in January 2019 with the addition of Chris Gore covering the Asia Pacific region. Chris joined the Fairline team from Princess Poole, where he was Sales Manager.
