New Boats
Seventh Solent Sunbeam
Friday, 25 July 2014 00:00
solent sunbeamThe resurgence in interest in classic boat racing in the past decade has not only led to a widespread rise in restoration projects, but it has gone one step further in the case of the Solent Sunbeam Class, dismissing fears of negative economic trends.

Haines Boatyard, Itchenor, has just completed a seventh brand new Solent Sunbeam, one of a batch that has been built in the last four years. The evolution of the GRP version of the classic Solent Sunbeam, whose lines were first drawn in 1922, has been driven by the need to offer aspiring owners a wider choice of hull types. These now include traditional wood, epoxy treated wood and GRP. GRP boats can be bought for around £64,000, VAT paid, less than half the cost of a new wooden hulled version.

When Misty, sail number V67, was launched towards the end of June, she was the latest of an influx of new boats, owners and crews transforming the Solent Sunbeam fleet. Two more hulls, which are moulded by Mark Downer’s company AM Structures at Sandown, IOW, are about to be fitted out by Haines.
