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.
Ever wanted to know what it takes to get a boat into the London Boat Show? Then head over to BBC iPlayer, or switch on BBC2 at 0630 on Monday morning (22 May 2017) and watch Episode 10 of the BBC series A1: Britain's Longest Road.
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.
Following the announcement last September that Tingdene Boat Sales has been appointed the UK exclusive representative for DaVinci Yachts from the Netherlands, it launched a brand new DaVinci 30 at Thames & Kennet Marina last week, to mark the first of this highly attractive range to enter UK waters. It also announced plans for a diesel shartdrive version of this Vripack designed bespoke open cockpit cruiser.
At a time when many narrowboat builders have moved production out of the UK to deal with rising costs, Tyler Wilson has fervently stuck to its principles of British-built hulls using only the best quality steel. Equally, Broom Boats has a long heritage of building hand-crafted boats from its base in Norfolk and is famous for its uncompromising quality. This partnership of two of the most renowned British boatbulders is a celebration of the skills held in the British marine industry and a commitment to creating something truly special.
Looking forward to the emergence of Spring? Yes we are too, so here's a date for the perfect kick-off start of season event — the Thames Used Boat Show at Thames & Kennet Marina on 14-23 April 2017.
A good gathering of Broom Owners Club members gathered on the Tingdene stand at the London Boat Show yesterday for a drinks reception. We were pleased to entertain many familiar faces present including the BOC Chair Gill Oldham and its General Secretary and Press/Publicity Officer John Oldham.
If 2016 did one thing for us it was to remind that there's no point in putting off until tomorrow what you really want to do today. If enjoying relaxing time afloat on a brand new motor cruiser costing less than a luxury car or motorhome is on your bucket list, then head straight over to stand F160 at the 2017 London Boat Show.
Bavaria Cruiser and Vision Line yachts and S Line motorboats already represent excellent value for money. But between now and 31 January 2017 you have the option to make your boating budget work even harder across the range with highly atractive additional exterior enhancements and interior fittings. You even get a voucher for wet weather clothing!
Most people are thinking about Christmas right now but we're already well into the final stages of planning Tingdene's traditional New Year's party at the London Boat Show on 6-15 January 2017.
Did you miss the Southampton Boat Show or would you like a second look at boats we were showing there, out on the pontoons and in our stand? Then no problem!

Marking the pinnacle of a very busy summer, Tingdene Boat Sales and its sister company, Tingene Marinas, will offer no less than 20 different locations around Mayflower Park, afloat and ashore, at which visitors will be able to meet up with staff and view the extensive range of boats and marinas on offer from both companies.
Tingdene's picturesque Upton Marina on the River Severn will play host on 20-21 August 2016 to a stunning quartet of new motorboats from the Tingdene Boat Sales stable, including the Broom 35 Coupe, Antaris Sixty6 sloop, Bavaria S36 sportscruiser and the innovative Bavaria E40 which is currently on its European maiden tour. Plus you'll be able to view a wide selection of pre-owned boats.
Tingdene Boat Sales is set to have its largest ever presence at the Southampton International Boat Show on 16-25 September 2016 and to help us celebrate that, we've got a great ticket offer for you. For example you can save £7 on normal entrance tickets for the preview day.
