Welcome to Our Website
It’s been a long time coming but I think that we now have a website that reflects the character and quality of our company. It combines the best of our past with our hopes for the future in a simple but sleek design that exudes classic style and craftsmanship… just like our boats!
Compiling the information for this website has been an education and has reminded us of the rich history and heritage that we have at Landamores. 95 years is a long time to have been building boats and we’ve really enjoyed trawling through the archives to write the history section for our website. Landamores’ early days as a hire fleet operator are reasonably well known on the Norfolk Broads, as is our long relationship with Oyster, but did you know about all the other boats that we have designed and built over the years? There are a lot of them! We’ve built rowing dinghies, motor launches, speed boats, racing dinghies, river cruisers and coastal yachts and cruisers; have a look at our history page to find our more. We’ve already uploaded a lot of information, but we will keep adding to the page to include as much information as possible, we hope that you find it interesting.
One of the primary objectives of revamping our website was to create a suitable platform on which to showcase our boats. We’re really proud of the new range of boats that we are building and can’t wait to get our first Mayfly launched next month, in time for the Beale Park Boat Show. Our first Jersey 36 motor yacht will be ready for launching later in the year too, so watch out for more updates as the builds progress.
If you don’t already know about the Beale Park Boat and Outdoor Show, it is a three day event on the banks of the river Thames known as “Britain’s most relaxed boat show”. It really is a fantastic event with a wide variety of boats available to view, from 53ft vintage motor yachts to small canoes powered by cordless drills! Boatbuilders and craft stalls surrounded the lake, which was a hive of activity every day.
Landamores were at this year’s show in tow with Henley Sales and Charter, our agent, exhibiting a new Mayfly 16 day launch called “Nymph”. This Andrew Wolsteholme design caught many eyes over the course of the show and we are pleased to say that we had a good amount of interest, resulting in a number of boats sold. The electric propulsion was what really attracted people, the silent running of a boat at 4mph was more than enough to convince the public that electric boating is the future, and everyone was very impressed by the compact design of the Mayfly’s Torqeedo pod motor.
We are sure to be back next year with more hand-crafted boats to show off and hope to be able to give everyone an insight into the full range of beautiful launches and tenders available from Landamores.0
