Boatshed expands boats sales into Croatia

mercredi, 27 avril 2011

I would like to say hello to my new colleagues Boatshed brokers, customers, and all other boat lovers. Some of you already know that I am recently finished my training in Boatshed HQ and spent few wonderful days in Portsmouth. Now I am ready to start Boatshed Croatia office and to introduce Boatshed brand in Croatia. Regarding that my first duty will be to perform necessary marketing activities and advertise Boatshed Croatia in national nautical magazines and boat shows. Of course I have also planned to be present in Croatian marinas and ports and on disposition to owners and customers as many and possible. Because of its attractiveness and good transport connections, in last several years Croatian Adriatic coast becomes one of most popular cruising areas in Europe so I expect that it will become also new homeport for many new boat owners from UK and other countries. They are welcomed, lot of quality boats here are expecting new crew!

Teak Decking Alternative

Teak Decking Alternative

mercredi, 13 avril 2011

Boatshed Dartmouth recently successfully sold a Moody 425 and her new owner decided that the cockpit seating and sole were really in need of attention as part of his refurbishment of the yacht. The curved nature of the seating had caused water to lay in certain places on the seating area especially aft by the drain holes which tend to block easily. Over a period of time this had resulted in the original plywood faced imitation decking fitted by Moody completely rotting out and it was starting to lift in other areas.

2nd April, 2011 The King & Queen Pursuit Race.

2nd April, 2011 The King & Queen Pursuit Race.

jeudi, 07 avril 2011

Saturday the 2nd of April, 2011 saw a fleet of yachts and dinghies with very strangely dressed crews heading down the river Hamble and out to a start line in the Solent. Most of this gathering had just enjoyed a King or Queen cooked breakfast (depending how hungry you were) at the King & Queen pub in Hamble otherwise known as the "Rum Pub" The reason for the gathering was the annual King & Queen pursuit race which is in aid of the independent Hamble River Lifeboat, with all entry fees, monies from a charity auction and collections go to. With prizes for the best dressed crew, the boat having the most fun, the best rounding of one of the marks, 2nd to last boat across the line etc etc you can start to understand what a strange looking race it is. That said it is still one of the most enjoyable local races around, with many tales and stories of races over the years going down in local folk law. Twenty five boats in all entered this year ranging from a Mirror dinghy, RS600 through to J boats & Dehler's, basically whatever you wanted to enter. With two time served race officers on hand the handicaps where quickly sorted out and five separate courses set with the same start and finish lines. Handicaps did seem to be open to bribery and corruption, be it all in a good cause. The first start was at 1030hrs and most boats had finished by 1215hrs in perfect sailing conditions of dry and sometimes sunny with a force three wind slightly gusting. Peter Delbridge of Boatshed Hamble was racing with friends on board "Amigo's" a Dehler 34 which was heavily handicapped because it was deemed to have a bunch of BANDITS on board (See Photos). "Amigos" did win a prize though, a bottle of Mount Gay rum, be it for being the second from last boat across the finish, something to do with having to much fun and the drag effect of wearing Sombreros & Ponchos was mentioned afterwards in respect to their poor performance. It was then back to the King & Queen Pub for a BBQ and even a gorgeous Paella. This was then followed by an auction of prizes donated by local companies such as Hamble Estate Agency and Boatshed Hamble.Com etc. The auction raised over £2,800 along with about another £500 from entries, and the funniest amount of £230 was raised by the male band members agreeing to play with their tops off ! After the auction it was time for the prize giving. 1st place went to "Never Give Up" the Mirror dinghy sailed by Martin Moody, 2nd place was won by "Tom" in the RS600 and third went to "Cejenica" an Achillies 24. All in all a great day was had by all with nearly £3,500 being raised for the Hamble River Lifeboat. Ps. By the time the dancing started there was not much of the Rum left ! See you there next year.
