Tuesday, 04 June 2013

Boatshed Dartmouth are delighted to offer for sale a well presented Fairline Targa 29.

New Instructions – Jeanneau Merry Fisher 635 for sale

Tuesday, 28 May 2013

Boatshed Brixham are delighted to offer for sale an incredibly well presented Merry Fisher 635. This is a really excellent example of these popular boats. The detailed photos show how well presented she is and I would draw your attention to the bilge photo, which was taken underneath the engine – there is not a trace of oil there! A few extra additions in the cabin make a weekend away a little more comfortable with extra stowage and an infill for the berth. All in all this is a Merry Fisher not to be missed. Included in the sale is a recent engine service by local marine engineers so she is ready to go for this season. Appointments to view can be booked in advance 6-days a week directly with Paul Singer your Boatshed Dartmouth broker.

New Instructions – Romilly for sale

Wednesday, 08 May 2013

Boatshed Dartmouth are delighted to offer for sale a Romilly. Designed by Nigel Irens the Romilly was a smaller derivative of the larger Roxanne.
