New Instructions – Kent 27 Motor Sailer for sale

New Instructions – Kent 27 Motor Sailer for sale

Friday, 07 September 2012

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.

Boatshed Medway review the Fairline Phantom 48

Boatshed Medway review the Fairline Phantom 48

Sunday, 28 August 2011

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.

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
