Obituary: Ian Stuart

Ian Stuart, owner of Stuart Line Cruises in Exmouth, has died after being diagnosed with terminal cancer a year ago.

As a well-known member of the Coach Tourism Association (CTA), Ian was a great champion of coach tourism who strongly believed in the importance of supplying a year-round service to operators.

He is survived by son Jake and wife Philippa who say: “Ian worked so hard for everything he had, and Stuart Line Cruises will continue business as usual as that is what he would want.

“We have adored welcoming coaches back to our attraction since 4 July this year and will continue to do so, come hell or high water.”
