Anyone who knows cruising in the Netherlands will be aware that Sneek, just to the north of the IJsselmeer, is a delightful boating town with a hive of boatbuilding industry including the excellent Jetten Shipyard and DaVinci Yachts close by.
So no excuses then not to take a late year visit to Motorboot Sneek on 3-5 November 2017, a unique boat show where the venues are the yards themselves.
Did you miss our boats at TheYachtMarket.com Southampton Boat Show? Then all is not lost because many of them will be available to you on the water, this coming weekend, Saturday 30 September and Sunday 1 October.
Tingdene Boat Sales will be bringing its broadest range of boats yet to the 2017 Southampton Boat Show in September, ranging from versatile Admiral Boat" motor launches, pedigree sportsboats from Glastron, high quality open cockpit motor yachts from DaVinci, practical river cruisers from Viking and three stunning examples of Broom Boats' latest models. Plus we'll be able to discuss our latest range, the very high quality Dutch steel and aluminium motor yachts produced by Jetten Shipyards and show you details of our wide range of marinas.
Stuck for something to do this weekend? Then do pop along to the Thames Traditional Boat Festival, which is one of the largest events of its type anywhere in the world. Tingdene Boat Sales, along with British Marine Thames Valley and other member companies, will feature a starter boat showcase, try-a-boat experiences and sailing and kayak simulators. Joining the try-a-boat fleet for this event is the Broom 30 Coupe, one of the latest models born of a 120-year-old heritage at Broom Boats. We are also planning to take along our new demonstrator Glastron GS259 - the very latest sportscruiser from this 60-year-old marque.
Tingdene Boat Sales is pleased to announce that it has been appointed as the Thames dealer for the Glastron range of sportsboats, sportscruisers and bowriders.
Glastron is one of the most iconic motorboat brands of all time – the company has been building boats for over 60 years and its classic GT models in the 1960s and 70s were the boats to be seen in. Today's models take design clues from that classic era, but blended with the very latest hull designs, engines, fit out and clever modern detailing to provide great pleasure of ownership today.
Tingdene's summer full of activities keeps on rolling this coming weekend, 8-9 July at Upton Marina where you'll be able to view a wide range of new and pre-owned boats for sale including the Viking 215, Viking 26CC, Broom 370 and Broom 30HT Coupe.
Next stop on Tingdene Boat Sales's summer of events is the Northern Boat Show in Liverpool this coming weekend, 23-25 June 2017. The show is part of the excellent Mersey River Festival, which will see the whole historic waterside of Liverpool come alive with events and attractions.
The Tingdene Boat Sales team is heading across to Conwy Quays Marina in North Wales this weekend to display the Broom 370 (pictured here) and Broom 30HT Coupe on the pontoons of the All Wales Boat Show, which is now in its fifth edition.
Tingdene Boat Sales is delighted to be able to announce the appointment of Olly Wylie as its boat sales executive for the busy Upton Marina boat sales office.
Olly is no stranger to the River Severn. Following graduation studying digital lens media at university he fulfilled a keen interest in boats, kindled by his keen sailing father and holidays in Scotland, by becoming a harbourmaster for three years and then a qualified broker for a similar period of time. He is an elected member of the Association of Brokers and Yacht Agents (ABYA) and joined Tingdene at the beginning of this month.
So, after months of anticipation, the first fruit of the exciting new collaboration between two British boatbuilders has emerged. Tyler Broom narrowboats combine Tyler Wilson's remarkably fine steelwork craftsmanship with Broom Boat's core boatbuilding and engineering skills. With interior layouts designed by Broom and materials hand-picked to create a high quality contemporary finish, Tyler Broom narrowboats will bring a welcome new twist to the UK's inland cruising scene.

Not content with having one of the largest boat sales networks in the UK and following hard on the heels of its highly successful Thames Used Boat Show over Easter, Tingdene Boat Sales has announced its biggest yet programme of attendance at boat shows and open weekends.
Depending on the event we'll be showing boats from Broom, Viking, DaVinci, Tyler Broom, Admiral, Bavaria and Antaris. Plus details of our extensive range of pre-owned motor yachts, narrowboats, barges, river cruisers, sportsboats, bow riders and day boats. And of course you'll get to meet with familiar faces from our highly experienced boat sales team.
The programme includes six boat shows across the country, on the coast and inland, a series of open weekends at several of Tingdene's marinas, plus a series of appearances at Henley's top events on the Thames during June and July.
