A Fleetwood maritime business is to fly the flag for the Fylde coast at a national holiday show this week.
Atlas Sailing which is run by Andy Dobson and Graham Zirfas will be displaying at The Times Holiday & Travel Show Destinations at Event City, Manchester, from Thursday to Sunday.
With star presenters such as Julia Bradbury and Michaela Stachan it has hundreds of exhibitors including tour operators, tourist boards from around the globe.
Atlas offers four hour introduction to sailing voyages, corporate and team-building events plus longer voyages from Fleetwood and in the Mediterranean.
Mr Dobson said: “The Destinations show a prime opportunity to showcase what is the only business of its type in the area – private yacht charter.”
He added: “People don’t tend to think of yacht charter in our area and by promoting Atlas at the show it will give me chance to talk to an audience who enjoy travel and adventure.
“With it being such a large exhibition and split into different parts of the world I feel that by exhibiting in the Europe section it will not only give me a chance to highlight what is available ‘literally’ on the doorstep but also I will be able to showcase the yacht charter I am able to offer in other parts of the world such as The Med.
“With all this in mind I’m looking to sow seeds to let people know that you don’t need to travel far to enjoy exceptional experiences.”
