Lymington Boat Club, launched from Lymington Yacht Haven in
early 2019 and provides access to a fleet of boats for an annual fee, is
expanding its fleet to offer even more availability and choice.
Arriving in spring 2020, a brand new Axopar 28 T-Top with
all new features will join the fleet, which already includes a Merry Fisher
695, Scorpion 875 RIB, Gemini 650 RIB and an Axopar 28.
The club offers members unlimited access to all five boats
in the fleet; the chance to enjoy all the fun of boating without the
responsibility of ownership. There’s something for everyone, with friends and
family, and even pets, being welcome aboard the club boats. Members can go fishing,
cruising, head somewhere for lunch or just relax on the water and drop anchor,
with extra toys available to members on request including Stand Up
PaddleBoards, a tender and fishing equipment.
“Year one was very successful for the Club – we’ve been able
to bring new customers into boating, as well as re-engaging previous boat owners”,
says Marina Director Rupert Wagstaff. “Our aim is to offer everything you could
want for a day on the water, on a boat that is fully-serviced, immaculately
maintained and fuelled up ready for members to step on board and go boating”.
“Before choosing our new boat, we surveyed our members to find
out what they most love about boating and which boats they would like to use
more. Fleet versatility and style are our top priorities when selecting a new
boat as we want to ensure our boats are suitable for all the activities that
our members undertake on the water.”
Listening to members’ feedback, Lymington Yacht Haven chose
the Axopar 28 T-Top to offer maximum day-boat usability and the most spacious
configuration for cruising, sun-bathing, water-sports and socialising.
Like the rest of the fleet, it will be coded to MCA safety
standard with lifejackets provided for everyone onboard. The new boat will also
have the added benefits of seating for 8 persons, a dedicated drinks serving
area on the aft deck bar, and an electric windlass.
The boat will be fitted out with a 300HP Suzuki Outboard,
for improved fuel efficiency and performance, and a Multi-Function Display
Screen on the dashboard. The specification includes an upgraded 12” touch
screen Garmin chart plotter, premium lighting package including underwater
lights, fully-integrated Fusion entertainment system, a removable teak table in
the cockpit and most importantly, for all year round enjoyment, a Webasto
For those wanting to join the Lymington Boat Club, they are
offered full training on each boat as well as RYA Level 2 Powerboat training
and certification, if required, as part of their annual membership.
Annual memberships cost £8,000. For more details, visit LymingtonBoatClub.com
or call 01590 677071.
The Lymington Boat Club is the second club launched by Yacht
Havens Group; in early 2018 Plymouth Boat Club launched followed by their
expansion into casual RIB hire in Plymouth in 2020.
