Richardsons 2018

Recommended Posts

Will be on Commander 2 in a few weeks and wondered if Richardsons have now completed their new boat building programme or is anything planned over the winter that will be new and available for hire early 2018.  Any details appreciated.

commander 3 will be at the boat show then another couple of Commodores next year. 

We have a dedicated moulding and building team who operate all year round separate to the hire fleet. 

We have more new boats less than 10 years old than any other operator. 

no plans to stop building.

If only you had two cruisers that could sleep 6 x males in separate bunks, shaft drive with large well decks, all male crew allowed (And dogs) then we could use them on our annual Lads Weeks.  Erm you couldn't see your way to constructing a couple of tupperware Admiral class could you?  Or a 'Sealord' with an aft well?

It doesn't tick the shaft drive box, but Majestic Gem is a good size boat (basically the predecessor to the Jewel of Lights) and is in some ways more spacious as Faircraft weren't bothered about making them look too boxy back then.

When it comes to the hydraulic drive - If you're paying almost £400 less a week (I've just had a quick look), who cares! I know which of the two yards I'd rather hire from, too.
