Come and meet us
Based in Romsey just off junction 2 or 3 of the M27, we are always happy for you to drop in and discuss your requirements with our experienced team.
We exhibit at both the London Boat Show and Southampton Boat Show where we are always pleased to see existing customers and welcome new ones.
We have our own demonstration boat located at Berthon Marina in Lymington, equipped with a Paguro generator, Mermaid Marine Air conditioning unit, Studer Xtender and Dessalator watermaker- where you can come and see our equipment in action.
‘We bought a Paguro generator for our boat from Advance Yacht. As our boat is kept in Greece we drove there with the generator and installed it ourselves. Rod and Caroline gave us excellent advice and told us they would be available by email or phone to talk us through any problems. We did the installation with no trouble whatsoever. The instructions are straightforward. The generator works like a dream. We would recommend Advance Yacht for their personal service and professionalism. ‘

‘I purchased a Paguro 3000 generator, inverter/charger and a Dessalator water maker from Advance Yacht Systems over two years ago and since then I have been extremely impressed by the company’s level of customer support. The equipment has performed very well, not only during two seasons in the Mediterranean but also during Arc 2009, in the Caribbean and the return to Europe. When technical issues have arisen (and these were minor), Rod Boreham has provided first class service by email or telephone both in and out of office hours to sort matters out, which has been very reassuring and supportive, particularly on the high seas. Advance Yacht systems also went out of their way to help me initially to find an experienced installer of the kit in the south of France where my boat is normally based.’

‘As a part of my preparations for our upcoming sailing adventure, Advance Yacht Systems fitted a 5kVA Generator, 2 Air Conditioning Units and a Watermaker to my Southerly RS135. I had done extensive research into equipment and available fitters; AYS came out on top as being efficient and best value for money plus there were many personal recommendations. The fitting was conducted within budget, on time and to the highest standard I have experienced in 35 years as a Professional Mariner. Importantly AYS take a justifiable pride in being available for ongoing advice and support.’

‘We are planning to leave Malta early next week, and so therefore commissioned your system today in the marina. Really pleased to report that after reading your notes again, we got round to the big moment, and shortly after that were making water! No problems, no leaks, all very straight forward, and therefore two extremely happy customers. We know it will make a huge difference to our quality of cruising. We have been more than happy with your service, and are delighted with Dessalator's product.’

‘Can I thank you and your company for the excellent service and the skill of your guys fitting my generator. The fitting went like clockwork as promised and I am very pleased with the result. The work was completed to a high standard by helpful and cheerful staff. They went out of their way to stay behind to show me all the controls and the operation of the generator and I would gladly recommend your company to others.’
