We're particularly looking forward to displaying no less than three Cranchi E26 models – a pair of E26 Classics and an E26 Rider. Every time these boats are shown they gather a crowd, so there will be a chance for all to get aboard and see how the brilliant blend of classic looks, performance, comfortable appointments and low maintenance translates on the water.
At the opposite end of the spectrum we'll be showing the largest-yet Cranchi to grace UK shores (pictured right). The T 43 Eco Trawler offers a three-deck layout combined with a versatile hull equally at home when ambling, or cracking along at pace to get to a haven. Recently arrived with us, our T 43 Trawler is ready to go for adventures of all kinds with family and friends.
You'll be able to see every model in the Cantiere Nautico Cranchi range between 26ft-60ft, except the 26 Rider, in the Pantiero section of the Vieux Port. Highlights will include the launch of the T 55 Trawler (pictured left) and the release of further details of the forthcoming Cranchi Settantotto 78ft flagship. Cranchi will also show a revised version of the Cranchi Endurance 30 which picks up on styling themes from the hugely successful E26 Classic and E26 Rider.
In collaboration with this change, long-standing Cranchi partner, Abersoch Land & Sea, will continue as a dealer of the brand from its key location for North West boating in Pwllheli, North Wales. This strengthens the number of UK sites where Cranchi enjoys experienced representation to 13 locations, 10 of them Tingdene Boat Sales’ own offices across England.
This event has been growing for several years now and 2019 looks to be the biggest yet, with a great selection of boats and exhibitors afloat and shore. Based at Poole Quay Boat Haven, right alongside the harbour's historic quarter, the show also features a lot of entertainment, including parachute displays, fireworks and RNLI demonstrations. On the Sunday you'll also be able to view competitors from the Poole Bay 100 Powerboat Racing fleet.
Perfectly proportioned for Fenland waters, the Tingdene Boats Widebeam 66 10ft 4in is designed to be equally suitable for short stay, holiday and liveaboard use. Built to Colecraft's usual high standards, with input on the design from Tingdene's highly experienced team, the 66 10ft 4in drew much praise from visitors at Crick who were particularly taken by the expansive interior with its light and modern finishes, as well as the sociable outdoor areas fore and aft.
The Crick Boat Show is the busiest event of its type on the canal network, with more than 27,000 visitors attending in 2019. A packed line-up of exhibitors and features means there's plenty to see for your Bank Holiday weekend visit and the site is easily accessible by road, just a few miles off the M1 in Northamptonshire.
Visitors to the show will be able to view boats and accessories as well as sampling a range of family adventure activities showcasing the Lake District, including cycling, kayaking and stand up paddleboarding. Space has also been doubled to accommodate more marine exhibitors.
Adding to its already impressive line-up of 10 sales offices, Cranchi UK distributor Tingdene Boat Sales has appointed Southampton Waters Yacht Sales to cover the South Coast from Weymouth to Eastbourne and South West UK Marine (SWUK) to manage Devon, Cornwall and the Channel Islands.
