Charles Watson has 45 years experience in the Marine industry starting with Camper & Nicholson in the 1970s and going on to co-found Ancasta Marine; the original Contest distributor. After leaving Ancasta in 1990 he decided to establish a specialist agency representing complementary ranges of top flight European sailing yachts in the UK and Ireland. It is on this foundation that our exclusive agencies for Contest from Holland, RM Yachts, and Wauquiez are founded.
Following the 2015 Southampton Boat Show, after many years based in Hamble, Charles Watson Marine moved to Parkstone Bay Marina. This move allowed Charles Watson to focus on new yacht sales, with Parkstone Bay Yachts handling the brokerage sales part of the business. Parkstone is working with Charles on all existing brokerage listings as well as working with him to provide a comprehensive brokerage service moving forward.
