October 2019 Boating News

October is upon us and there appears to be little sign of mellow fruitfulness this year. Political wrangling aside we are busy looking forward to the 2020 season with plenty of interest from UK boat hire companies wanting to electrify their fleet. In addition, there is the usual steady flow of boat sales enquiries.

September 2019 Boating News

We hope everyone has had a good summer. Whether you were having oysters on the Essex marches or drinking Retsina in a harbour on sunny Poros, taking time out with friends and family on a boat has to be the best way ever to relax.

July 2019 Boating News

Every picture tells a story and this one clearly situates us in Henley on Thames during early July for the world-famous Henley Royal Regatta. And while for an athlete this is all about rowing and competing, for the town’s people and the many visitors from within the UK and as far afield as China […]

June 2019 Boating News

“I know a bank where the wild thyme blows, Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows, Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine, With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.” 

(Quoted from Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”) 

Titania would have been perfectly at home on board “Eglantine” (pictured above) on Midsummer’s day.

May 2019 Boating News

HSC is relocating. While we found this option in the Suffolk marshes (photo above) attractive, it is a little far for the daily commute, even on my new Brompton Electric bike! So in the absence of a suitable floating option, we will be moving to a splendid office on Station Road here in Henley-on-Thames […]

If the long lazy and sunny Easter weekend was a good omen for the coming season then we have several months of great boating to look forward to.

March 2019 Boating News

It’s been another busy month at the yard as the relaunch planning comes into sharp focus. We have been doing some viewings too so expect new boats to appear on the brokerage website very soon including an attractive Andrews Day launch. However it hasn’t been all work and no play as you will read below.

February 2019 Boating News

This is our travel and culture issue as frankly not a great deal happens in February in the UK boating scene. Not to say that we have not been doing some viewings, which is good news for those of you with boats for sale, but right now we are sorely in need of more […]

January 2019 Boating News

Could January’s sunny skies have promoted a New Year’s boat buying frenzy? From our perspective it would seem so.

Times are changing

‘The show must go on’ – or so the saying goes. However London Boat Show was cancelled this year for the first time since the 2nd World War and now Beale Park Boat & […]

December 2018 Boating News

It is the time of year when we start to get excited about coming together with family and friends during the long winter days, and we even start to look forward to spring. Believe it or not we are still selling boats at an average of one a fortnight, and no one is more […]
