Picton Cobra Under New Management
Dave Picton has sold his interests in Cobra RIBs and the company is now under new management
The new owners Steve Arkell and Malcolm Patrick are both existing Cobra owners, and will seek to take the company to greater heights by increasing production and the Cobra model range.
The Cobra RIB, available in 5.5m – 12m models, has been popularised by Dave Picton with the introduction of the thoughtfully designed “Nautique” layout. However, it is the stability and rough water handling that has continued to make a Cobra RIB a popular choice for families, water sports enthusiasts and adventurers alike.
Dave will remain as consultant to Cobra and will retain the Maxum, Starcraft and Olympic distribution under the Picton banner. It is also his intention to expand the retail side of the business at the new 760 sq meter unit on Brynmenyn Industrial Estate.
