Bear Grylls Sealegs Rib

We were asked back in February to commission a new boat for Bear which was to be supplied from New Zealand and fitted with a new Yamaha F115 Outboard.

The boat arrived late on in April and after some faff we offloaded the boat from its shipping container, brought it to the yard and fitted her out.

The Sealegs provides a unique solution to Bears problem of getting people and kit on and off St Tudwals West Island as it is equipped with a patented hydraulic three wheel drive system which allows the user to self launch and recover the boat from any suitable launch site.

The boat has been completed and commissioned now so we went out for a watertest on Thursday afternoon and it was a little surreal driving into the water with the boat and just carrying on! We saw some dolphins too which is always a nice sight when you are out boating.

Bear will be down in the near future to take delivery of his new boat and we are sure he'll enjoy the freedom it will afford him and his guests when he is in the area.

Here are a few pictures of how the build happened.

22nd April 2021 - Well that was great. We saw around 40 boats on the water for our first week of Park & Launch in Abersoch. Blue skies were the order of the day and although it was quite chilly on the water it was great to see so many smiling faces return to the yard. We are now working on getting the rest of the boats ready for Mayday weekend, the first Abersoch Banky of the year! Hopefully the weather will play ball.

31st March 2021 - We reckon you'll be boating in Abersoch before too long. We are hoping to open our Park and Launch service in Abersoch on the 12th April 2021......we'll see you there for beers and boating!

 

11th March 2021 - When? Well we'd like to be open again from the 12th April which would be lovely. Whatever happens we will unfortunatley miss Easter 2021 due to lack of guidance from the Welsh First Minister and the stay local message which will be in place in England. We will be getting boats ready for the season over the next month so that as soon as you guys get the green light to be here we will be ready with boats and tractors to get you on the water. In the meantime, stay safe.
