Winter is upon us but no let up here at Cambrian Boats.
The last few weeks have seen us preparing boats for delivery to their delighted new owners, an Arvor 190 to its new home in the North of England, a Ranieri Voyager 19 to Cornwall, a Glastron GS279 to Greece and a Brig Navigator 520 to West Wales.
This demonstrates not only the diverse geographical requests we can accommodate but also the varied styles of boats demanded from fishing to sports to leisure craft.
In addition our Technicians have been busy in Swansea Marina preparing and painting a community boat that offers trips along the River Tawe. Cambrian Boats regularly work supporting local organisations such as this as well as first response rescue boats who regularly bring their vessels in for servicing.
During the latter part of the year, invariably two types of thought processes come to the boating population in the UK. There are those who have enjoyed a summer of leisure activities are considering winterising their engines to store up their craft in ready for the following season, and those who will continue to enjoy their boats.
In South Wales, more than most, we encounter temperature changes and varying weather conditions on a regular basis. This means that it is of even greater importance to ensure your boat engine is maintained frequently. Our factory trained technicians and mechanics are ready to prepare your outfit for the cold months as well as diagnosing any faults that potentially could incur problems or added expense at a later date.
Another type of leisure user will be looking forward to period of successful fishing. The British coastal areas are renowned for the varied and plentiful fish stocks and this pastime continues to grow along with the technology modern day craft and electronics offer. Here at Cambrian Boats we have had the pleasure of supplying new and used quality fishing vessels. As a leading main agent for Jeanneau, we offer a range of new Merry Fisher Marlin boats as well as Warrior craft and welcome enquiries on vessels through the entire size range. 2018 has seen used stock come and go with makes such as Arvor, Quicksilver, Explorer, Orkney and Shetland. We can tailor your outfit to be accompanied by the 21st century sophisticated electronics support offered by Lowrance, Garmin or any other manufacturer you have a preference for.
Please see our 'Boats For Sale' section for a full range of current offers as well as 'Services' regarding boat maintenance.
Southampton Boat Show 2018
The 2018 Southampton Boat Show offered a myriad of weather types from blazing sunshine to gale force winds to driving rain. However, the crowds still came to see the all new Jeanneau Merry Fisher 1095 and 605 Marlin exhibited by Cambrian Boats.
The Merry Fisher 1095 is now the flagship of the range, our outfit boasting twin Yamaha FL300BETU outboard engines on this legendary Jeanneau design and build quality boat. Three generous cabins offer luxurious accommodation for families.
The Merry Fisher 605 Marlin is the entry level boat of this type in the range following on from the success of the cruiser version. Innovation is at the heart of this boat and Jeanneau have incorporated a retractable helm allowing piloting from either the deck of the cockpit. The asymmetric wheelhouse gives access to the bow by way of a safe deep walkway to where additional seating can be found. This fast fishing boat is fitted with a Yamaha F115BETX outboard engine.
If you weren't able to view these boats at the show both are available to be seen at our premises now as well as the current range of Jeanneau Merry Fisher Cruiser and Marlin, Cap Camarat and Leader craft.

It's cold outside but Spring is coming
Spring is just around the corner and now is the time to make sure you can get the boat you want, when you want it.
We are now fully moved in a settled at our new site and 2016 was a good year with unit sales increases of 23% on 2105, so the expansion has proved worth it.
For 2017 we have ordered literally truck loads on Jeanneau Merry Fisher, Jeanneau Cap Camarat, lorry loads of Leaders and NC's. Truckloads of BRIGs and trailer fulls of Warriors. Call us to see if what we have will suit you, we're pretty sure it will.
