New Boat Construction

The Gentlemans day launches are a range of day boats that are built to order here at Martham on the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads. They are designed to your specifications to best suit your needs. These are the range of designs we offer:

The Roamer is a competitively price boat with a classic line in appearance and quality. It has outstanding ability and is proving popular in Britain and Europe, as a sturdy and reliable launch. The Roamer has a high quality fibreglass hull and is finished to give the appearance of luxury. The cabin and decking can be made in either wood or fibreglass. The standard Roamer comes complete with a 2 cylinder Vetus 11HP diesel engine, tiller steering, all weather cover and cushions in a material and colour of your choice. If you would prefer the cabin and decks to be made out of wood, we use only prime quality mahogany which is finished with 7 coats of varnish.

The Jaunty 20 has been in service as a day hire boat on the Norfolk Broads since the late 1940’s. Originally constructed from wood, we decided to put into production a craft that had all the appeal of the original Jaunty, but utilised modern GRP build techniques. The standard Jaunty 20 comes with electric motor, twin battery banks, AC charger unit, warps, fender, and canopy. The varnished interior can be complimented with teak floors and/or decks if required. Upholstery can be in PVC or upgraded to leather, or a material/pattern of your choice and the canopy is fitted as standard. The engine can be either electric or diesel. Other upgrades are availiable upon request.

The Venturer is a classic Gentleman Launch which is proving popular both in Britain and Europe. It is a competitively priced craft with a fiberglass hull and is finished in prime mahogany wood to give the appearance of pure elegance.
The standard Venturer comes with either and electric motor or diesel engine, tiller steering and an all weather cover. Other upgrades are available upon request.
