The story of Ruth and Ron Boogaard starts in 1990 at the Hamburg Boat Show.
At this time Ron Boogaard was working in sales and after sales for a brokerage selling English motor yachts in Northern Europe, whilst Ruth worked in the company of her parents, in Bremen who were then selling Dutch motor yachts. Both companies were presenting their yachts side by side at the Hanseboot boat show which is how they met. The following year Ron moved to Germany and for a couple of years worked with Ruth’s parents.
In 1993 Ron travelled with his in-laws to Taiwan where they visited more than a dozen different shipyards and finally placed an order with Horizon, for the first three yachts. These were then followed by more than 200 Horizon built yachts, and promoted in Europe until 2010 under the name Elegance Yachts.
This is how the foundations for 20 years of successful collaboration with Horizon Yacht shipyard were laid.
At the same time Ruth and Ron decided to take up residence in Majorca where in 1994 they set up their own company, based in Port d’ Andratx.
From then, until now, they have been responsible for the sales and after-sales of Horizon yachts throughout the Mediterranean.
In January 1999 they opened up another sales office in the marina of Puerto Portals, and continue today their close relationship with the shipyard being responsible for the sales and after-sales service of Horizon yachts throughout Europe.
