Classically practical

Experience the Admiral's life


As impossible as it might seem, you can buy a brand new Admiral Boat for less than £8000 inc VAT, ex engine. For that money you'll have an eminently practical open motorboat that is capable of exploring canals, rivers and lakes and inshore waters as well.

We're talking here about the Admiral 440, a great way of getting afloat for the first time.


Admiral Boats are powered by Mariner outboards – a brand that has built an incredible reputation in service with the RNLI over the years. The boats themselves are similarly well constructed to provide years of trouble-free service with minimal maintenance.

You can choose between open launches, through to cruisers styled on classic double enders, Norwegian weekenders and Duct sloops, plus innovative sportsboats. Please browse our list of models to the right to get a feel of the many options open to you, backed by Tingdene's excellent customer service across its fully connected network of 10 sales offices.
