Classically practical

Experience the Admiral's life


As impossible as it might seem, you can buy a brand new Admiral Boat for just over £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 450 Classic, 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.

This versatile pocket open deck sportsboat can do it all. With the ability to take up to a 60hp outboard to tow a waterskier or inflatable, its clever layout also makes it perfect for lunch afloat or a spot of sun bathing. It's small enough to be trailed behind a family saloon as well.

Admiral 650 Lifestyle from Tingdene Boat Sales

And now for something completely different. The Admiral 650 Lifestyle brings something of the styling of the classic sportscar look to an open cockpit motor launch with disguised outboard well and copious seating and storage. The sports analogy stretches to outboard options which range right up to 115hp.
