Tingdene Boat Sales has significantly expanded the range of new boats on offer from its 10 sales offices that cover many of Britain’s busiest boating areas.
We have been appointed the UK exclusive representative for the Da Vinci motor yacht range from the Netherlands and have signed an agreement to represent Bavaria motorboats and yachts from Germany on the River Thames, Norfolk Broads, Cambridgeshire Ouse, River Severn and Severn Estuary for official Bavaria UK importer Clipper Marine Boat Sales.
We have also announced our partnership with Bushnells Boat Sales and Marine Services to sell Antaris, Maril and Makma sloops from the Netherlands. All three ranges join Tingdene Boat Sales’ existing representation of Broom Boats and Viking river and canal cruisers.
Da Vinci produces a range of three superbly designed and constructed open cockpit motor yachts from 9.6m-10.5m that brilliantly meet the current demand for a classic line combined with modern design and materials. Da Vincis are equally at home on the river, or at sea where their diesel sterndrive powered planing hull designs enable fast passage making. New for 2017 will be a v-drive design specifically for use at lower speeds and offering the familiar handling characteristics of a shaft drive. All Da Vincis are very well geared for day cruising with friends or more extended adventures as a couple or family.
The Bavaria range of motorboats spans a versatile line-up of sportscruisers, coupés and flybridge motoryachts from 9.3m-15m, while the equally diverse sailing yacht range runs from 10m-16.8m. All models, power and sail, benefit from Bavaria’s highly detailed approach to design, build and specification. Among its innovative recent developments is the futuristic semi-displacement E40 motor yacht, which takes its accommodation design clues from superyacht styling and its ecological credentials from efficient hull design and modern power options, including a hybrid variant. Tingdene Boat Sales will able to arrange viewings in August of this highly anticipated new model at the opening weekend of its new Portishead Quays Marina office on 13-14 August.
Antaris offers a line-up of eight open and cabin motor sloops from 5.5m to 8.7m, suitable for inland and coastal cruising. Low air draft across the range means even the largest of the models can limbo under the lowest likely bridge, or fit into smaller boathouses. They also feature really practical touches, like sturdy hull fendering, while offering classical styling, economical operation and great accommodation for family and friends.
Neil Mallandain, Sales Director said: “the addition of these great ranges to our line-up mean we really do have something to offer everyone, from the smallest day launches and pocket cruisers, to luxury motoryachts and sailing cruisers, all from Europe’s leading boat manufacturers. Our growing network of sales offices is completely integrated and also offers more than 150 pre-owned boats for sale and great part exchange and boat purchase options too. We look forward to representing Antaris, Bavaria, Broom, Da Vinci and Viking in the days ahead, working closely both with the manufacturer and with our UK partners.”
