On Thursday attending the "On the Water" Bus in association with Boatshed.com, we have Ray Cotton from HMRC who will be available to answer any queries you may have about, importing a boat, VAT, proof of VAT, etc. He is only available for questions at the PSP Southampton boat show on the Wednesday and Thursday, so make sure you put this in your diary.
It is always a pleasure to step on board a beautifully clean and well presented boat. That was my first reaction when I stepped aboard this beautiful Bavaria 330 Sport. The owners have obviously spent a lot of time and effort to keep her in top condition, not to mention the money they have spent on all the recent improvements.
Day 4 of the 42nd Newport International Boat Show was another gorgeous day to be in down town Newport RI. America’s Cup Blvd was bursting at the seams with boaters of all kinds.
Today at the PSP Southampton boat show, Ben Webb a superyacht Captain gave advice to people on the "On the Water" Bus to people interested about getting into this industry.
Day 3 of the 42nd Newport International Boat Show was the busiest yet. It’s a sure sign of things changing in Rhode Island and the Boating Industry.
Day 2 of the 42nd Newport International Boat Show was another busy one. The crowds started right when the gates opened and took us through another great Fizz @ 5!
Boatshed Newport has reduced the prices on several of our boats this morning. Check out our site to see full details on these boats.
With the start of the show to cloudy skies and slight rain it soon cleared up to be a bright, blustery day. The Olympian athletes opened the 2012 PSP Southampton boat show to a burst of enthusiasm from the crowd.
Day 1 of the 42nd Newport International Boat Show was a success. We spent the day meeting new friends and catching up with all of our old friends. There was a good turn out at the start of the day and it seemed to carry us through past show closing.
Boatshed Dartmouth are delighted to offer for sale a Windy 7800. Not often seen in the UK these are really good looking boats – classic lines that don’t date and plenty of good Windy build quality too. It was a fine summer day when I photographed this boat and she presented herself as a clean, tidy, well cared for boat. On great days like this is when the spacious cockpit and the aft sun deck come in to their own. But there is a reasonable cabin too with a galley area and flushing heads for when the weather is not so good or you want to stay out over the weekend. Appointments to view can be booked in advance 6-days a week directly with Paul Singer your Boatshed Dartmouth broker.
A new charity has been set up in the Shadow of the Olympic Stadium. E20 Eastenders Fishing Club , which intends to help disabled ex-servicemen and children as well as bring back fishing to the canal in East London.
This converted motor fishing vessel we have for sale in Essex is 52ft long and the boat was of course built in a Dutch shipyard.
With the success of British sportsmen and women in sailing, canoeing and rowing during the Olympics and Paralympics, the time could not be better to encourage new people into boating.
Boatshed Dartmouth are delighted to offer for sale a Warrior 40. This fine, semi-long keel cruiser evolved from the Angus Primrose designed Voyager 38. Bill Dixon designed what was in effect a stretched version with encapsulated ballast and roomier interior. For a 40’ yacht the interior space is excellent especially with the C Layout (features the large forecabin, twin aft cabins, twin heads and nav station in the port aft cabin). When I first went onboard I was impressed by the excellent presentation of this yacht, the high standard of maintenance and of course the splendid Volvo D2-55 engine installed in 2004. With a cutter rig, in mast furling and everything led aft this is a great yacht to sail and is offered with an excellent inventory. Appointments to view can be booked in advance 6-days a week directly with Paul Singer your Boatshed Dartmouth broker.
Boatshed Newport, International Yacht Brokers toured the Artillery Company of Newport this morning. Inside the museum was an amazing display of military uniforms and artefacts from around the world.
Boatshed Dartmouth are delighted to offer for sale a Kent Motor Sailer. These are very sturdy motor sailers with good accommodation featuring a separate heads forward, good size galley and saloon and enough light and space to even be a live aboard. This example has been laid up ashore for a few years now but has been covered over with a full custom boat cover. Clearly much attention has been lavished on her and receipts are on file for standing rigging and an engine overhaul. A bit of tidying up and freshening up and she could be ready to go. Appointments to view can be booked in advance 6-days a week directly with Paul Singer your Boatshed Dartmouth broker.
and now for something other than boats, just for a change:)
It's that time of year again! No, not back to school......time for the Lake Union-Seattle Boats Afloat Show!
