Banks-Martin may be a new name in boat-building but the company s two directors have a background in iconic British boat brands, such as Sealine. Now based in Kidderminster, the business is looking to build on the traditions of the past while introducing a higher standard of craft to the inland industry. The Beaulieu 30 is the first of its range of boats aimed at river cruising in the UK. Tingdene Boat sales have taken on the retailing from all 9 of their offices as the Banks Martin 30 and other planned models fill the gap between Viking River Cruises and Cranchi Yachts already both Retailed by Tingdene.
The Beaulieu takes its name from the alternative spelling of nearby Bewdley on the River Severn.
At first glance the boat appears much bigger than its just-under 30ft length would suggest, and it certainly looks far more refined and modern than many of the surrounding GRP cruisers on the river most of which are based on designs produced 30 years or more ago.
The Beaulieu has a low-wash semi-displacement hull, unlike many comparative cruisers that have a planing hull, which isn t ideal for low-speed cruising
This example was built as the display boat in 2019 and is to be replaced in 2022 so is now available for purchase to an exceptional specification which includes:- Bow thruster, Diesel on board generator, All electric galley, Large shower compartment, 5 berth accommodation, Simulated Teak decks, LED TV to list a few of the options fitted
