Broom Boats has partnered with Tyler Wilson and Tingdene Boat Sales to produce an exciting range of narrowboats with a modern twist.
The range will be branded as Tyler Broom and will be marketed and sold by Tingdene Boat Sales.
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.
Tyler Broom narrowboats will provide the very best options, whether considering using the boat for weekends and holidays or as a permanent place to live with an unbeatably relaxed lifestyle and sensible housing costs.
Matthew Harvey, Managing Director of Broom Boats commented: "The Tyler Broom product range marks an exciting new venture for us. By utilising Tyler Wilson's expertise with the steelwork, we can concentrate our core boatbuilding and engineering skills on building a fantastic boat. With interior layouts designed by us in-house and materials hand-picked to create a high quality contemporary finish, we are confident we can bring a fresh approach to narrowboats and the way people use them."
Neil Mallandain, Sales Director of Tingdene Boat Sales added: "We have worked with Broom for many years and are delighted to be collaboratimhg with them on this project. This modern and contemporary twist on the traditional narrowboat offers both individuality and the freedom to explore, coupled with practicality. We are expecting it to be incredibly popular, particularly with those who have never considered a narrowboat top offer anything so stylish."
The first Tyler Broom, a 58ft narrow beam semi-traditional stern model, will be launched at the Crick Boat Show on 26-29 May 2017.
