PETTICROWS RELOCATE TO CASCAIS
During March 2021 the Petticrows Boatyard will be relocating to Cascais, Portugal.
The relocation will ensure Petticrows is very well placed to service the fleet efficiently when we are able to get back on the water this season and beyond.
After more than 30 years based in Burnham on Crouch in the UK, it is without doubt a big change, but presents a very positive opportunity for the company and will integrate some new personnel, ideas and enthusiasm with our existing quality and reliability.
Tim Tavinor will continue to be involved overseeing the production and will be continuing to race the Dragon on the regatta circuit.
Petticrows Portugal team will count on the familiar face of Pedro Rebelo de Andrade and with his extensive experience in Dragon sailing.
Pedro is joined by Henrique who will take care of the operation in Cascais.
The existing UK contact details will still be in operation for some time so please call or e-mail with any questions or concerns over this move. Please note Petticrows Portugal sales office new contact details are in this website contact details.
Several of the key production workers from UK will also be involved in Portugal making sure of a seamless transition so you can be sure of some familiar faces when you are next able to visit us in Portugal!
Petticrows Portugal is located in Cascais, a village that has been a big and popular part of the recent history in the world of Dragon sailing.
Portugal has a long and successful Maritime heritage and we very much look forward to a new chapter for Petticrows in this friendly environment.
