A TOPSHAM trader has been awarded the sole contract to supply the entire Devon area with Yamaha outboard engines.

The boatyard service W Trout and Son, on Ferry Road, has been awarded the Yamaha dealership for the entire Devon area and the Exe Estuary.

The deal will add to the business's extensive range of services which will now include the servicing and maintenance of Yamaha outboard engines from 2.5hp to 350hp.

The family-run business, in partnership with Craven Marine Engineering, also won the Regal dealership for sports boats and cruisers.

Lynn Trout, one of the owners, said: "We have done really well as a small boat yard to have been offered such an important dealership which will enhance our services.

"We are hoping to see an increase year on year in East Devon - we now have the engines and will sell them as well as get all the parts for people under one roof."

In true community spirit the boatyard business will also be working with Pebblebed House and The Globe Hotel to launch a special package this summer.

W Trout and Son will offer a launch and recover, a visitor berth on their pontoon and storage for a trailer for £195.00 for the week, available to people who stay at either Pebblebed House or The Globe Hotel.

For more information contact the boatyard on (01392)873044.
