Olympian joins Key Yachting in Ireland

Four times Olympian, Mark Mansfield, joins Key yachting as its representative in Ireland for its four ranges: J Boats, Grand Soleil, Nautitech Catamarans, and Tofinou. Key Yachting is the sole agent for these performance brands in the UK and Ireland, but has not had a specific Irish agent for a number of years.

Mark is well known in the Irish sailing and marine market. Following 30 years working in the banking sector, he turned sailing professional/coach/consultant five years ago. In addition to the Olympics, Mark has numerous accolades from 1,720 titles, to European wins in the Star and IRC Europeans, and Irish Champion of Champions. He is also a columnist for Afloat Magazine and has written on many performance and race orientated subjects.

Marie-Claude Heys, MD of Key Yachting, says: “We are really excited to have Mark join the Key Yachting family. Mark already knows and sails with many of our owners in Ireland, so is perfectly placed to assist them with any technical issues, and of course help them upgrade their boat when the time comes. Mark is a top sailor and we are hopeful that he will help to sustain the fantastic reputation that our J Boats in particular have in Ireland.”

Mark can be contacted at mark@keyyachting.com and by phone at 00 353 87 2506838.
