The Premier Agapi Boat Club is excited to announce a new collaboration with Francis Benali, a highly regarded former Premiership footballer who will join the Club as its newest member and brand ambassador. 

A presentation marking the partnership took place on Thursday 16th September on Premier Marinas' Stand at the Southampton International Boat Show. The audience heard from the man himself, speaking about both his career accomplishments and what attracted him to join the Boat Club, despite having no prior boating experience.

"Boating is completely new for me but I really feel in safe hands with the Premier Agapi Boat Club team. Having been out on the water on one of the top of the range fleet today with my wife Karen at the show, I am even more excited to get started with my training later this month".

Andy Mills, Business Development Director at Premier Marinas added:

"We are delighted that Franny is coming on board. We wanted to work with a first timer because we really want to show how quick and easy it is to get out on the water. We're going to be following Franny's RYA Powerboat 2 training in just a few weeks' time so make sure you're signed up to our social channels to see how that goes.!"

The Club has already enjoyed significant growth at its inaugural location at Premier's Swanwick Marina which opened for business late year. Premier Agapi Boat Club is now set to expand and preparing to open club's at both Chichester and Noss on Dart for the start of the 2022 season, which will enable members the freedom to explore even more of the UK's stunning South Coast.

With changing attitudes to ownership, boat clubs are a rapidly growing concept in the UK and Premier Agapi Boat Club is already one of the leading operators with a low member to boat ratio to ensure the highlest levels of service and availability. The Club scaled up their fleet of performance craft earlier this year in anticipation of a step change in demand following the various lockdowns. Latest additions include the powerful Agapi 800 and Agapi 950 models, both of which offer sheltered year-round boating and below deck accommodation, on-board toilet and cooking facilities.

The Club's tailored memberships welcome beginners and more experienced baoters alike with any training requirements also supported. Membership provides the ultimate in hassle-free, family-friendly and affordable boating with no joining fees, berthing fees or maintenance costs to worry about - simply join, book, and go boating.
