Wide range of boats and berths from Tingdene at BoatLife Birmingham

18 January 2021

Tingdene will debut at the brand new BoatLife Live boat show at the NEC Birmingham on 17-20 February with a boat to suit every taste and purpose from Cranchi, Viking Cruisers, Viking Canal Boats, Banks Martin and Dolfor.

Cranchi Endurance 30Providing pedigree offshore performance but with copious and comfortable accommodation for river and inland cruising too, we'll be showing the Endurance 30 as our representative from the Italian Cranchi range.

The bow area is easy accessible via well protected walkways. The steering position is amidships for easy visibility all around. She is perfect boat for four people to sleep or up to 10 to entertain on with two large lounging areas. The cabin features full headroom and is fitted with a double berth and the dinette forward. A large wet room and an additional double berth aft complete the accommodation.

Best of all, our Endurance 30 is in stock and ready to go.

If your ambitions lie more towards a more traditional form of canal and river cruising or even living aboard, then we have the Viking Canal Boats 70 x 12 06 wide beam. Trust us, this will quite possibly be the largest vessel you'll be able to view at BoatLife Live!

Viking Canal Boats 70 x 12 06Viking Canal Boats specialises in the construction of steel narrowboats and widebeam boats to customers' bespoke preferences, at very high quality.

The example we will be showing (right) has a two-cabin layout, wet room, large saloon and spacious galley. It is specified with a full range of galley equipment including a dishwasher, flatscreen TV, double sofa bed and armchair in the lounge with bunk beds in the second cabin, perfect for children of any generation.

Powered by a 75hp diesel engine, with manoeuvrability assisted by a bowthruster and with electrical needs catered for by a high quality Victron system, our show boat is ready either for your summer cruising adventures or exciting lifestyle change to living afloat.

As a bonus, the 70 12 06's dimensions allow for exemption from VAT should it be purchased as a sole place of residence.

Banks Martin 30Similarly named but from the a company that is synonymous with building GRP motorboats for the inland waterways, Viking Cruisers have introduced thousands of families and their friends to boating. At Birmingham we'll be showing the four berth Viking 24. As a Viking specialist we offer these boats in the Highline specification as standard. This provides everything needed for the first time or experienced boat owner. Again the 24 is in stock for immediately delivery.

If you prefer motoryacht-style finishes in a larger inland cruiser format then we will be pleased to show you around the Banks Martin Beaulieu 30 (pictured left), one of the latest additions to the Tingdene Boat Sales family. Built just down the road from the NEC in Kidderminster, the 30 appears much bigger than its length suggests. Spacious open plan, airy accommodation will appeal to many, while the distinctive straight stem of the bow and clean lines will catch the attention of other waterways users. The Beaulieu has a low-wash semi-displacement hull, and a choice of inboard or outboard power.

Finally we're pleased to be displaying an example of another Midlands-built creation. The Dolfor 500 is a practical pocket open deck boat equally capable of inland or coastal use. We've recently put one into service as a hire boat at Walton Marina and invite you to take a look at this flexible 16-footer.
