Naiad and Others
We love the UK's answer to the Dutch sloops which are appearing everywhere these days. Understandably however as they give their owners plenty of comfortable seating, a cover for rain or sun and a reliable engine for day cruising. Whether or not they can be classified as contemporary classics is a moot point. Some do have a more classic feel to the design while others are definitely more contemporary.
How lovely then to be able to sell our customers a range of UK built contemporary classics where the hull is of low maintenance GRP and the decks and internal finish is either varnished mahogany or the latest eco-teak as it is known where you get the unvarnished wood look with a guarantee of years of maintenance-free cruising. All are fully electric with a full day's cruising range and on board charging.
The Mayfly 16 designed by Andrew Wolstenholme for Creative Marine has proved a popular six seater and is a very cute boat. The one you can see here is ready to go with an aft pram hood and in a very attractive cornflower blue with a price tag of £35,000.
The big sister offers seating for up to 12, a choice of canopy or bimini, cushions, navigation lights etc and we currently have three in stock from £45,000 depending on propulsion and finish. You have the option of the low maintenance version like the one our rental company, Pure Boating, has just bought for skippered charter out of the Beetle and Wedge at Moulsford on the river Thames which you can try before you commit to a purchase. Alternatively you could choose the varnished solid mahogany decked navy blue hull which is a real head turner and is ready to go with matching cushions, cover etc.
Please contact the office for more information on these British beauties.
