About Us 

A Thoroughly Modern Boat Buying Experience 

Bates Wharf Marine Sales Ltd will operate the Fairline Southampton offices and berths as well as continuing to represent Fairline from its offices in Poole, Chertsey and Eastbourne. The state of the art facilities owned by Bates Wharf Marine Sales Ltd in Chertsey, Surrey will be known as Fairline London and offer customers the largest indoor showroom on the River Thames and a 100-berth marina. This location also benefits from convenient transport links into London.

These South Coast dealerships strengthen Fairline’s current UK representation that includes Fairline Wales and Fairline Channel Islands, ensuring customers find their perfect Fairline.

Douglas Culverwell, Regional Sales Director for Europe at Fairline Boats, commented: “This is exciting news for Fairline and ensures we maintain key coverage across the South Coast of the UK. Richard Bates and his team have a wealth of marine experience which our customers can really benefit from.”

Richard Bates, Managing Director at Bates Wharf Marine Sales, commented: “We are delighted to be representing Fairline across the South Coast. We are a family business and are passionate about selling boats and offering first-class customer service. We have a fantastic working relationship with Fairline and it is a real honour to be working with such a prestigious British brand. We look forward to exciting times ahead!”

Colin Sykes, CEO at Fairline Boats, commented: “We are extremely pleased to have Bates Wharf Marine Sales representing us in this key boating region of the United Kingdom and look forward to sharing the continued success of our brand in partnership with Bates Wharf. We are currently working on other regional appointments and expect these will fit well with this partnership.”

All our offices are open seven days a week; we hope to welcome you very soon.
