Dan Posted October 9, 2009 Share Posted October 9, 2009 Whatho Folks! Recently got hold of the new 2010 Blakes brochure and thought it would be interesting to see what everyone thought. It looks quite an improvement, with many of the grainy, old pictures replaced with recent, digital ones that are much larger and clearer. There's also a mass of interior pictures for the large fleets, but the smaller fleets dont seem to be as well represented on that for some reason. As ever, it seems quite catalogue like in its layout - it doesn't seem like much design has gone into the layout (3 boats per page in a list type format etc), but there are some nice larger shots of the area inbetween etc, and overall it's much better, quite good really and now gives you, in most cases enough informayion & confidence to make a selection. Good to see Blakes stepping up their effort I thought. I was suprised that given the success of the 2009 season that there seemed a shortage of brand new boats for 2010. Interestingly Barnes Brinkcraft appear to have bought a batch of 29ft dual steer Connoisseur FB models, have upgraded them slightly and are running them as "Brinks Jazz class" Also good to see DRL Marine featured, after just being on the website this year due to forming their fleet after the brochure had been done. Interestingly, the European fleets seem to have disappeared - so I guess that must be a seperate brochure now? What does everyone else make of theirs?
