Charmian Entwistle recalls 20 years of running a yacht charter company on Skye!

LAST YEAR on 1 December, Mark and Charmian Entwistle celebrated 20 years in the yacht charter business which probably makes them the longest lasting charter company operators in Scotland. They celebrated the event with their annual staff end of season meal at the Duisdale House Hotel, but the big party is being saved for the end of next year, to celebrate the 21st anniversary!

In 1998, the Entwistles purchased the then, Sleat Marine Services on the retirement of the previous owner, John Mannall who was one of the founder members of the ASYC (Association of Scottish Yacht Charterers).

The company was extensively expanded and was rebranded in 2002 to become a limited company trading as Isle of Skye Yachts.
