Say Hello to Bumblebee our new "BIG" boat
Over the last couple of winter's we have been busy behind the scene's on project “seafari" ! It has been a long long road, we took delivery of the boat in late 2018. We wanted to fit her out ourselves to know the boat inside out. 2019 was the year of the big build, everything on the boat all the way down to the deck was taken out and replaced or re-fitted to our specification’s. As we neared completion ready for a big launch in 2020. The covid-19 pandemic put the whole project on ice. When would we be able to start ? That season came and went in the blink of an eye, we had to keep focus on our core activities in the new socially secure world, putting our passion project on hold for a further year was gutting for us. However we did manage to get her on the water for sea trials, staff training and research ! lots of research think golden sandy beaches, quirky coastal towns and amazing coastline. We also got all the little niggles ironed out, we now have her fully ready and raring to go for 2021.
We can’t wait for the big splash and to get you out on her exploring our magical coastline.
