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 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:)

The modern Fairline Phantom 48 long range cruiser really epitomises British Boat Building at it’s best. I am lucky enough to have been on board, photographed and had a lovely cruise on a couple of these magnificent long range motor cruisers. I also have a couple of these motor boats for sale, so I thought I have created a boat review for the Fairline Phantom 48 based on the boats for sale that I have on my yacht brokerage based in Kent. The Fairline Phantom 48’s that I went out on are the modern shaped design, 2008 models and both boats look as good as a new 2011 model.
The government is offering councils financial incentives to allow more moorings for houseboats on waterways.
The British Powerboat Festival arrives in Cowes this weekend. So we could not resist a visit to the pits before the races start to get a feel for the action to come and to promote Boatshed! If you happen to be on the Isle of Wight this August Bank Holiday weekend then this is a must stop on your visit, but beware it is also the annual scooter rally so make sure to look left and right even on the pedestrian precinct! see Cowes 2011 Link
