Sports boat manufacturers Fletcher recently launched their new F series with the F23, which will be ready for delivery from March 2024.
A completely new design from Fletcher, the F23 will initially launch as a petrol outboard before the brand introduces a fully electric version in autumn 2024. It features a frameless tinted wrap-around windshield with a hinged centre section, which swings open to provide walk-through access to the bow lounge with sunken seating. At the stern, a full-width integrated bathing platform offers a relaxing space, extends the waterline and can act as a platform for waterskis and wakeboards. The F23 is set to reach speeds of 50mph thanks to its 300hp outboard and fibreglass and carbon-fibre sandwich construction.

Ed Ahmed, Chief Product Architect at Fletcher, commented: ‘The F23 not only marks our first new model in 20 years but also highlights a major step in our new direction towards a fully electric offering in 2024.’
Fletcher are also recruiting new staff members to add to their expanding production and design teams at their factory in Hambridge, Somerset. Workers are being recruited for a variety of roles in manufacturing, including laminators, fitters, designers, salespeople and business developers. All vacancies are listed on their website.’
