Golden Arrow Marine celebrates 50 years

Golden Arrow Marine celebrates 50 years as a Perkins Dealer: 1964 - 2014

The history of Golden Arrow Marine as a Perkins dealer begins in 1964 when it was based in Newhaven. After 37 years, having outgrown its premises, it moved in 2001 to Southampton where it employed around 15 staff. Further changes happened in 2009 when the company not only moved to new premises at Shamrock Quay, but expanded the business with four branches along the south coast to include Portsmouth (formerly Motortech Marine) at Port Solent, Poole (formerly Poole Marine Services) in West Quay Road and most recently Chichester (Marina). The company now employs over 50 staff and is the official 'Number 1' Perkins Dealer within the UK, beating all other dealers put together. And you can see why:-
