Who are we?

Nautiques UK Ltd is run by Brian Buchanan and his wife, Anna Britnor Guest.

Brian Buchanan

The company is headed by Brian Buchanan, who worked for Nautique dealer, TV Ski, for 7 years, and brings a wealth of experience and knowledge of the full range of inboard towboats, past and present. In 2001 he was the official technician to Correct Craft Nautique (title sponsors) for the world waterski championships, held in Italy.

Brian has built his extensive boat knowledge following wide experience in motor vehicle engineering, occupying various roles within the service and aftersales departments of major manufacturers' dealer networks. Brian is regarded as one of the best twoboat marine engineers in Europe.

He is a BWSF qualified international boat driver and has wide experience as a club boat driver and instructor. He's also been the official boat driver for many wakeboarding competitions including Wakestock from 2000 to 2006.

When not fixing or driving boats, Brian can be seen surfing, particularly in the warm and sunny environment oXtreme-Gene.

Anna Britnor Guest

Anna's role in Nautiques UK Ltd includes business management and marketing.

Anna's background is in strategic sales and business development and she has successfully run her own sales and commercial training and consultancy business since 1999. She is a Fellow of the Institute of Sales and Marketing Management (FInstSMM) and an Associate Member of the Institute of Directors.

She also writes for business journals and web sites, including a chapter for the Institute of Directors' Growing Business Handbook.

Anna has been slalom skiing for nearly 20 years (though that may not be obvious from her standard of skiing!) and, since getting together with Brian, has also become a keen wakesurfer - though spending rather more time under the water than Brian does! She has also acquired her BWSF international boat driver licence.

Both Brian and Anna are members of the BWSF.
