NEW Boats on Brokerage

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 >>


NEW boats – DALE Classic 35 design advances

A high performance, exquisitely luxurious day boat, the DALE D34 design has advanced and the boat has now been renamed the Classic 35 to fit in with our existing nomenclature. Developed from the hull form of the DALE 23, a boat that quite literally staggered the boating press when it was launched in 2010, the Classic 35 is set to combine the very best of traditional style, the finest materials and the latest technology to give class leading performance and handling.

NEW boats – DALE Nelson 34 now launched

The DALE Nelson 34 is another boat that has been developed from the hull form of the DALE 23 – with the boating press being so effusive about its performance and handling abilities it created a lot of interest with owners who were looking for a larger boat, and so the concept for the DALE Nelson 34 was born. A hardtop version, following the established DALE Classic style will also be available.

First DALE 23 for home waters

When we designed the DALE 23, the open layout and soft riding hull were two key criteria selected with Mediterranean boating in mind. The very first 23 was delivered to Greece in 2010 (the photo shoot was such hard work!) and a further 23 was delivered to Spain in Spring 2011, but we’re delighted that the latest 23, currently in build, is destined for the waters of Pembrokeshire – the very first since its spectacular Southampton 2010 Boat Show debut that will be staying at home.
We promote it as ‘the perfect boat from dawn till dusk’ and that’s just what the owner will be using it for with a mix of gentle cruising and high adrenaline watersports with friends and family.
