Update 5th June 2020,


We have had another crazy busy week in this weird, partial lock down World, that we now live in! The Boat Yard Staff are all at full


speed and we are servicing, fixing, launching, repairing, de-winterising and getting people afloat, as quickly as we possibly can. With a 10 week backlog and not all staff back on stream, we are doing our best to keep every body happy, but please bear with us while we deal with this massive workload; and new ways of working, to comply with social distancing rules to keep everyone safe.

We handed over the third of four new boats this week, that arrived during lock down. The family receiving the stunning Oceanis 35.1, are delighted with her and we hope they have lots of fun, just as soon as they are allowed to stay onboard!  The Oceanis 30.1 that we handed over last week, is already turning heads on the Lake, as the first of a new model from Beneteau, see if you can spot her on her mooring and give her a socially distanced wave!


The call and collect service for the Chandlery is working well and Nick is very busy. This will be operational until non-essential shops are allowed to re-open on 15th June. We will then operate a more open door, but limited customer numbers, policy. Please respect all efforts to socially distance. We really can’t afford for one of us to get this horrible virus, as this would force closure of our doors altogether.

Call us on 015394 88050 or e mail to order what you need. We will also be open Saturday 6th June from 10-4pm and Sunday 7th 10-2pm. Call us and pay over the phone, we will then put the goods outside for your collection. Please respect the social distancing guidelines, at all times.


Our Brokerage service is really busy. Chris is back behind his desk and has sold three boats this week, with five viewings booked in, in 1 day!

Please note we can only view boats with one other person, masks and gloves will be provided. Industry advice is that viewings should be 72 hours apart, so please understand that if we viewed a boat yesterday, we can’t show it to you today, or tomorrow!!

Please also be aware that the majority of shops and all the facilities in Bowness still remain closed. So if you can, be self-sufficient and bring what you need with you. It is not permitted for you to stay on board your boats overnight. Please respect this.


We really appreciate your continued support at this crazy time.


Stay Safe, keep your distance and take care!
