DALE Classic 35 World Debut

The DALE Classic 35 made it’s World Debut at the Southampton Boat Show back September. From the
drawing board of TT Boat Designs, the 35 is the third planing hull to emerge from the DALE yard.
In 2010 we launched the DALE 23, our first fully planing hull. To say it wowed the boating world is an
undersatement - Motor Boat and Yachting magazine likened its cornering abilities to a formula 1 powerboat!So high standards were expected of the Classic 35, and we’re glad to say it has exceeded every expectation – take a look at the video to see just what an accomplished craft this is.

Used boats selling well

It’s been a good year for the DALE Brokerage with an excellent level of sales, particularly in the latter half of the year. Both Nelson 38s and Classic 45s have sold – one 38 selling so quickly we had to withdraw the web listings before we’d got them all complete!
The first 23 to hit the used market also found a new owner very quickly.
If you’re considering the purhase of a used DALE, remember no one knows a pre-owned DALE like the
people who built it.
Buying a boat from the DALE brokerage means you’re buying from the people who know the detailed
history of the boat, in many cases carried out the servicing and maintained it to the same meticulous
standards to which it was originally built. View the boats >>
If you don’t see a the used DALE you’re looking for, please contact us – we’re in regular contact with our owners so we’re generally the first to know when a used boat is coming to the market.

A new force in Commercial Boat Building

Clive Jeffrey of South Catamarans Ltd is a name that needs no introduction to the world of commercial boat building. His boats serving the fishing, pilot, windfarm, ferry and enforcement sectors have a reputation as rugged work horses with impeccable standards of seakeeping – not surprising when you discover that like DALE, his hulls have been created with the expertise of TT Boat Designs.
We are delighted to announce that DALE Nelson Commercial has now started building Clive’s designs with a range of 10–13m catamarans that are the ideal complement to our exsiting range of Nelson mono hull work boats.
Our first ‘cat’ is already in building and following this year’s Seawork show, enquiry levels for further builds are already very strong.
