The Inspiration Series
The design and concept of Marina Boats Ltd came from Director / Founder Aidan Pragnell, who specialises in building and maintaining both pleasure craft and houseboats.
Whilst spending time on his own boat he noticed that a large proportion of boats never leave the marina. Most of which were used just as weekend retreats or holiday homes.
Like most boat owners, Aidan started with a small boat and upgraded to larger vessels to maximise living space and comfort onboard, in doing this he found the bigger the boat, the less he used it for boating.
This resulted in the concept of a Marina Boat being developed, which is a boat that spends the majority of its time in a marina as a holiday home or could even be a permanent home. The Marina Boat was designed to boost internal space by having no side decks or bulky sailing / manoeuvring equipment.

Location specific but we have solutions to suit all. Ideally cleverly pumped into mains drainage although if not available we can install a biodigestor that breaks down the waste with a bacterial process and purifies the water to a level which is able to go overboard.
As good practice all boats should come out of the water every year to be jetwashed off and inspected although not necessary. All Marina Boats are anti-foul coated as standard although there are optional extras of copper coat or anti foul Vynal wrap that can warrant the extended time between required lift outs.
Currently they are zero rated for VAT if non-propelled and used as a prime residence. If you choose to go for the propelled version or are using to let out commercially, VAT is payable on the full price.
