Picture a beautiful traditional day boat in your mind, then look up Swallow Boats on their website www.swallowboats.co.uk, same image? These gorgeous designs are built along the shores of the Teifi estuary in West Wales and owe their styling to traditional craft of the area, but are constructed using the most up to date methods.
Principal shareholder Matt Newland is an avid supporter of Barton Marine products and has chosen many of our sail handling items for the new BayCruiser 20 model, the first of which is to be launched very soon with more firm orders in the pipeline. Matt’s principle was to keep the design as simple and light as possible with the least amount of string and fuss when launching, she even features water ballast for ease of retrieval and manoeuvrability on land. Sail areas are relatively modest as she features a ketch rig, so fittings can be kept simply and lightly loaded.
Be sure to take a look at the Swallow Boats stand at Southampton Boat Show in September, Stand B025. Our photos feature hull #1 awaiting completion and delivery to proud new owner Julian Swindell.
