Richardsons End Of Season Bargains 2018!

Recommended Posts

Good prices there... The aquafibre looks good deal.

Quick question though Clive, how comes you don't offer private options of the new classes you offer on here? I would have thought the folks on other waterways maybe keen and would commission privately.

Some good value there. A couple of specific questions on the Horizon 35's .Is if feasible to fit a bow thruster to them and is there room in the engine box for an effective soundproofing solution?

I must admit that Distant Horizon looks very appealing, but if you are going to own a boat, you must get your monies worth out of it!

I'd say the AF42's are very good value - Plenty of internal work done and like a lot of the boats there they have been re-engined.

They have sold quick!

Shows just how popular these boats are.

Now if you fancy selling on one of the Alphacraft Highliner 35's, let us have first dibs :default_beerchug:

I did notice how they showed Distant Horizon in it's catalogue form, and perhaps not showing the aged wrinkles it has today!

Didn't stop someone snapping it up very quickly. Think it was the first to sell in a matter of days.

I'll be sad to see Crown Gem 3 611F go as it's one of 'my' boats having been my first solo hire in 2011. Ah, the days when I could hire solo from Richardsons before they shot themselves in the foot! My late dad came aboard for the day so extra happy memories. 

It looks like Crown 1 and 2 might be staying though? My one dislike about that class was the one piece canopy (I would have liked to detach the sides). With the canopy up it felt claustrophobic.

Hi Simon, 

too many boats with canopies would come home with the neatly folded canopy down,  only for us to find out one of the sides were missing!

Hi Clive, 

I can well understand your thoughts on this, we have in the past had to have side or rear sections made for our canopy when owners have lost these overboard (it shouldn't but does happen) the costs for replacements do tend to cost an arm & leg. 

Regards

Alan

I thought such faux pas never happened on syndicate boats. You are shattering my illusions.

Sadly even in syndicate boats accidents do happen, wind and tides have a lot to answer for. Owners do offer to pay for their mistakes and if the costs involved are less than the insurance excess then a token payment is ask for.
