SS Suncruisers started operating on Scarborough seafront in March 1991.
Jack Stephenson was co-owner of the business when it was set up in 1991. Then in March 2000 it became solely owned by the Stephenson family. In addition to Jack, his wife Rosemary also became involved in the business.
Up until October 2001, the seafront service was all that operated, however, in 2001 a new company, JR Promotions Limited, with the same ownership as SS Suncruisers was formed to operate a fleet of hard top double decker buses on school contract and private hire work.
Initially three buses were purchased but it very quickly became evident that the business was expanding at a rapid pace.
The company now operates a fleet of mostly Volvo buses with various bodies fitted. Apart from the open toppers, all but one of the buses and coaches are fully fitted with seatbelts and most of the buses are fitted with luxury coach seats. We have 49, 57 and 70 seater coaches; all of which are available for private hire.
