New Instructions – Shakespeare 620 Sport RIB for sale

Saturday, 30 March 2013

Boatshed Dartmouth are delighted to offer for sale a stunning Shakespeare 620 Sport. Finished in dark blue hypalon tubes, white and piped blue upholstery and equipped with a 150hp outboard this RIB is both attractive and fast! She has been dry stored and launched as required so she has never been antifouled – I could only find one tiny mark on the hull (that will probably polish off anyway). Ample cockpit seating makes this RIB ideal for families or plenty of space for water skis etc. Appointments to view can be booked in advance 6-days a week directly with Paul Singer your Boatshed Dartmouth broker.

New Instructions – Beneteau Oceanis 311 Clipper for sale

Thursday, 28 March 2013

Boatshed Dartmouth are delighted to offer for sale a lovingly maintained Beneteau Oceanis 311 Clipper. This one owner from new 311 has the benefit of the lifting keel reducing her draft to just over 2’ with the keel up but over 7’ when lowered. The 311 is based on the Figaro racing class hull and therefore offers some quite impressive performance. The Clipper version of the 311 added extra features including the wheel helm and lazy jacks. The current owners have certainly used and enjoyed their 311 and she is very well presented, equipped with a good inventory and is now ready to launch. Appointments to view can be booked in advance 6-days a week directly with Paul Singer your Boatshed Dartmouth broker.

New Instructions – Marine Trader Europa 40 for sale

Thursday, 21 March 2013

Boatshed Dartmouth are delighted to offer for sale a Marine Trader Europa 40. Imported into the UK by the current owner (VAT was paid on import) this trawler yacht offers plenty of living space, a large fly bridge and recently refurbished and installed Ford Lehman engines.

Overall she would provide a very comfortable long-range cruising yacht or equally comfortable live aboard.

New Instructions – Upgraded Sealine S360 Ambassador for sale

New Instructions – Upgraded Sealine S360 Ambassador for sale

Friday, 01 February 2013

Boatshed Dartmouth are delighted to offer for sale an exceptional Sealine 360 Ambassador. This is a truly exceptional boat that has lost all traces of the original Ambassador colours following a full and extensive refit in 2008 that has brought her right up to date. Also installed in 2008 in an immaculate engine bay are twin 270hp Cummins Mercruiser engines with just over 30 hours on each. She is beautifully and tastefully furnished throughout and everything is of the highest standard and quality. If you are looking for a comfortable, near perfectly presented cruiser that you could ‘step on and go’ then this is the boat for you. I’m looking forward to showing you onboard and appointments can be arranged 6-days a week directly with Paul Singer your Boatshed Dartmouth and Boatshed Brixham broker.

New Instructions – Moody 34 for sale

New Instructions – Moody 34 for sale

Friday, 25 January 2013

Boatshed Dartmouth are delighted to offer for sale a Moody 34. These are really excellent, nice looking centre cockpit yachts with a well laid out interior. The Moody 34 started life in 1983 and continued in production until 1986 with a total of 165 being built. Production then continued as the 346 which had an identical hull. It was clear when I went onboard this yacht that she has been thoughtfully and carefully looked after. Lines are led aft to the cockpit and several items have recently been replaced or updated. Once again I find myself wondering how a 34’ yacht can feel so big. The forward cabin is a good size but it is of course the light and spacious aft cabin that is the yachts greatest asset. Appointments to view can be booked in advance 6-days a week directly with Paul Singer your Boatshed Dartmouth and Boatshed Brixham broker.

Sealine SC38 for sale

Sealine SC38 for sale

Tuesday, 22 January 2013

Boatshed Brixham and Dartmouth are delighted to offer for sale a Sealine SC38. Stepping onboard I was immediately struck by the amount of wood that Sealine have used throughout the boat. The cockpit is very well laid out with more than enough seating and this is good comfortable seating too. All too often seats seem to be an after thought on boats not really taking into account just how the area will be used. In this case you can sit with friends, talk and watch the BBQ at the same time. The engine bay is easily accessed and stepping down into the engine bay it is really easy to access the major items. The twin 300hp D4 will whip you along at a satisfying 34 knots. As you might imagine for a boat of this age it is immaculate in the engine bay. However, it’s below decks in the main saloon and galley area that really sets this boat apart. The large overhead skylight floods the saloon with light and there are also large rectangular ports to let even more light in. The woodwork below is washed walnut and the cabin doors have that satisfying solid feel to them. In summary I can do not better than quote Motor Boat Monthly whose verdict was –“Sealine's SC series is officially the most exciting thing to happen to sportscruisers in years.” Appointments to view can be booked in advance 6-days a week directly with Paul Singer your Boatshed Dartmouth broker.
