A new finish from NV Equipment

A new material, a more distinctive look, enhanced durability, lower cleaning.  In recent months, NV Equipment has expanded its range of aesthetic finishes to give even more character to its bimini tops and hoods. Enter STAMSKIN: a new material for NV.  By replacing the standard original White PVC finish, Stamskin, made of imitation leather, is perfectly suited to marine requirements and has a supple feel and unrivalled elasticity. In terms of production, the colour of the Stamskin depends on the colour of the acrylic canvas as NV has selected a range of matching tones.  Call us today for a quote for your new canvas.

Sargo visit to Paris!

A new Sargo 31, recently handed over, took part in a Royal Yacht Squadron bi cententary trip to Paris.  They had an amazing time, the Sargo drew lots of admiring looks.  Once out into the English Channel, the owner of the boat in front did have to ask the Sargo skipper to slow down a little due to the chop!  Didn't bother the Sargo... 

Next Sargo on her way

After a manic, Sargo filled Spring the next one is on her way.  This 31 has a dark blue hull and, along with her numerous owner specific modifications, is guaranteed to turn heads in the Solent and beyond.  She's off the France for a trip soon as well.  Why not pop down and take a look at her to she why the Sargo range has won so many awards

And off she goes

Following a packed handover day, the Sargo 31 Minali is off to her new home in Lymington.  She certainly is a fun boat to drive, and we hope Martyn has many happy trips in her, and catches loads of bass!

Twin engine Sargo 31 on sea trials

The first of the new 2015 Sargo 31 has been out on sea trials with the Volvo guys here, and even they were impressed.  Top speed on a slightly choppy day was 41.3 knots, AND quiet AND a smooth ride.  These boats really are built like something you want to throw around!  Fun fun fun
