FURTHER DEVELOPMENTS REGARDING: CARSON WINS HIGH COURT CASE AGAINST PROBOND MARINE LTD. (MD Colin James MacAndrew and now at The Ultimate Boat Co.)
Intellectual Property & Enterprise Court strikes out Probond Marine’s case: 30 June 2020.
One year on Probond still not paid damages & costs to Carson.
Valuable assets hidden & others claimed deliberately destroyed deny Probond’s creditors & Carson their rightful monies.
Key role played by Shane Mugan (of The Ultimate Boat Company, etc.)
Following further malicious false claims and fake news posted by MacAndrew & Shane Mugan, both of The Ultimate Boat Company (UBC), Glasgow & Isle of Man, Carson has been compelled to update this statement of facts in more detail on documented evidence.
* Over two years in the High Court.
* Disputed matters before the Court: Breach of Contract * Carson Interceptor RIB Designs * IP Rights *
Royalties * Commissions * Other Matters
* Damages & costs awarded to Barry Carson (Carson RIBs).
* Probond’s case struck out in its entirety after failing to provide evidence and attend trial.
* Probond held in Breach of Contract and also High Court Orders before trial with further breaches committed
* No findings of wrongdoing by Carson contrary to MacAndrew’s still publicly repeated claims.
* Colin James MacAndrew, MD of Probond Marine Ltd. has now ceased trading.
* Shane Michael Mugan, previously involved with Probond and now Owner/Director of newly formed The
Ultimate Boat Company (UBC), played an instrumental destructive role and was root cause of the dispute
that led to the High Court and Probond's demise.
* Dispute began immediately Mugan got involved with Probond. MacAndrew appointed Mugan as mouthpiece
to initially deal with Carson.
* With no prospect of winning the case MacAndrew began winding-up Probond and joined with Mugan in
starting The Ultimate Boat Company, initially in the same premises in Cullen, Scotland.
* Damages & costs awarded to Carson remain unpaid.
* With no prospect of winning their case and following trial & judgment against him MacAndrew proceeded to
adopt a reprehensible scorched earth policy by hiding assets, destroy and send to landfill various high value
production moulds, stock & new demonstrator boats thus denying Carson due damages with costs and
denying Probond’s numerous other creditors their money.
* Carson’s claim exceeds £640k. Numerous other creditors are also left out of pocket by hundreds of
thousands of Pounds.
* MacAndrew’s actions are considered a deliberate and vindictive process to avoid his legal and moral
obligations to Carson, his staff, suppliers, service providers and many other creditors.
* MacAndrew now refers to himself as "Advisor to the Board" of UBC in Clydesdale, Glasgow. Mugan and his
wife are the Owners Directors of UBC. Mugan also describes himself as “Growth Advisory Board Member”.
Some of Mugan’s other interests include Exo Technoligies, TYNC Design, Hibernia Capital, Novo Altum and
Emeritus, all based on the IOM the same as UBC’s registered office.
* 6 months after losing his case MacAndrew and or others, on Christmas Eve and morning 2020, posted
numerous personal insults, defamatory comments and allegations knowing them to be all completely
fabricated and false against Carson’s boat designs and personal good character and reputation.
* Then, failing to achieve his aims, on New Year’s Eve MacAndrew emailed Carson threatening to post more lies
if his demands were not met, inter alia, that Carson remove all legitimate reporting regarding this court case
and its outcome. Unlike MacAndrew’s allegations and posts all material posted by Carson is factual and fully
supported with documented evidence.
* Mugan had previously posted some of the same as MacAndrew on UBC’s Facebook (see below). This was cut
and pasted by MacAndrew proving further collusion between them to compulsively lie about these matters
and their concerted effort to harm Carson’s good name.
* Additionally, Mugan has emailed Carson directly adding further insults and more fabricated claims regarding
* Police and other authorities are informed and have written to MacAndrew advising his actions are unlawful,
to seek legal advice and warning him he may face future prosecution.
* Carson is taking legal advice and considering further action against MacAndrew and Mugan of UBC.
* Matters are ongoing and further updates will be posted.
