Operating under lockdown 3 restrictions

Following the latest lockdown announcement on 4th Jan 2021 we are continuing to offer a 'viewings by appointment only' for our residential customers. We are also offering a personalised 'video calling service' which allows us to demonstrate a boat's layout and its features live with Video calling/Facetime technology - it's almost as good as being there in person (click here to see a non-live demo). To arrange either a viewing or a video service please call either our Hanbury Office 01905 953 888 or our Mercia Office 01283 890 888.
