André du Pon is calling it quits. And calling a new start.
Aalsmeer, June 27, 2016 - André du Pon quits his activities of Dupon Watersports at
Boten aan de Wal and starts a new initiative: Making Waves. This nautic agency,
which will be situated at the same location in Aalsmeer, provides clients with
consulting, boat service, purchase and sales of boats 'that matter'. After more than
13 years of dealership for the English Petticrows shipyard and the related services
by Dupon Watersport, André looks back on a wonderful period of Petticrows
dealership. First with Poul-Ricard and Sophia Hoj Jensen and later with Tim and Kay
Tavinor. He would like to express his thanks to them for the pleasant cooperation
and the corresponding indispensable trust and warm relationship.
Bas Spaargaren, who for many years has looked after the repair of polyester ships,
has taken over the services of Boten aan de Wal and the premises for storage at the
Oosteinderweg in Aalsmeer.
For spare parts, owners of Petticrows Dragons can always contact Paul Neve
(firstname.lastname@example.org) or visit the extensive webshop of Petticrows:
www.petticrows.co.uk/catalog. For storage and repair to their beloved Dragons,
they are as usual welcome at Bas Spaargaren (email@example.com) and his newly
acquired Boten aan de Wal. Dragon sailors, who have been used to being comforted
by Dupon Watersport’s event-related services, will have to do without these going
With Making Waves, André du Pon extends his activities in the boating business,
although it will be at a more modest scale. In his own words: “It’s that irresistible,
exceptional, opportunity which one comes across, the many years of loyal
customers and that one exciting eye-catching boat.” With Making Waves he follows
his dream to hunt for ‘Things of Beauty’: boats that matter. Based on years of
experience, an excellent eye for aesthetics and a passion for watersports, Making
Waves selects the best boats to restore, maintain or resell. At the end of the day,
more time becomes available for his passion: sailing the Dragon and the Finn.
Making Waves is located in a separate section of the premises of Boten aan de Wal.
Address: Oosteinderweg 132, 1432 AP Aalsmeer, The Netherlands, tel: 0031 6 5338
