Clarke & Carter – a brief history

Clarke & Carter

First established in 1979 at West Mersea in Essex, we then acquired Interyacht Ltd. in 1985. In the early 1990’s we merged the two companies to form Clarke & Carter Interyacht Ltd. Since then, we have developed and grown into the largest brokerage boat sales company on the East coast. With an unbroken trading history we are proud to have remained independent, our team has remained constant and is recognised as one of the most experienced in the industry.

Although currently less directly involved, Clarke & Carter have campaigned in many local and national sailing regattas to great success!

Our main offices in Suffolk, Essex and Kent are at prime sites in the largest marinas in their areas. These encompass the three most popular sailing rivers of our region. This has allowed us to serve our customers needs well and develop a great network of companies offering complimentary services.

We have been a Jeanneau UK dealer since 1996 and have an excellent knowledge of both existing and previous models for providing spares and advice. Recently, we have also taken on the Ocqueteau dealership for the East coast and look forward to helping our customers discover this exciting range.

Over the years we have represented a large number of manufacturers from which we have gained valuable brokerage experience, including:

  • Albin
  • Baltic
  • Bavaria
  • Bowman
  • Contessa
  • Dufour
  • Elan
  • Fisher
  • Freedom
  • Jeanneau
  • Moody
  • Parker
  • Sadler
  • Seamaster
  • Sigma
  • Southerly
  • Starlight
  • Westerly
  • X-Yachts
  • Yamaha

As a result, we can often offer advice and information to owners and prospective purchasers unavailable elsewhere. We have sold nearly 10,000 boats of all descriptions, both sail and power, with values ranging up to £1m.
