Simon Boote first came to Cornwall as a sailing instructor on the Helford River in the early 1980s. He returned with his family in 2003, having had a career that allowed him to sail all over the world. He took over Ancasta Cornwall (Falmouth and Mylor) in that year and added Ancasta Plymouth to the portfolio in 2007. He remains a passionate sailor both in Cornwall and overseas. He has been a member of the Royal Ocean Racing Club since the mid 1980’s and has competed in many of the world’s premier sailing events. However he is also a proud owner of a Fly-bridge Sports Fishing boat that is “probably one of the most used boats in Cornwall!”
Tara is our Regional Brokerage Manager and has more than 15 years of brokerage experience with Ancasta. With our emphasis on good title paperwork and the increasingly complex requirements concerning RCD and VAT her experience is invaluable to our clients. She has a wide range of boating experience from sail boat racing to owning her current 40ft Sealine. She has always represented Ancasta at International boat shows, originally with a focus on power but since 2006 she has become a hugely passionate and successful advocate of our Lagoon catamaran range. These boats are large and the demands of the clients who buy them are complex, so Tara’s experience is a critical factor in our success with this brand.
