Attention boating enthusiasts – is this folding boat the half-forgotten answer to the eternal tender problem?

Tenders tend to be be a nuisance as we all know – the nasty rubber things cost a fortune, take ages to inflate, take up a lot of space on board and row like psychopathic milk jugs, and of course a solid tender is a can be a pain to tow.

So some people might like to consider this folding alternative, which I’ve just spotted. Plans can be downloaded at the Svenson website.

Boatbuilder Cem Gür sent use these pictures of the pair of Thomas Gillmer-designed Blue Moons he and colleagues at Classic Boats Turkiye are building, together with some conceptual drawings and some photos of the early build of a 29ft Bristol Channel cutter to plans drawn up by Paul Gartside.

Cem tells me he’s expecting to be able to send photos showing more boat building progress at the end of this month.

Thanks Cem!
