Barton Marine is proud to support Drascombe by Churchouse Boats, as it celebrates 50 years of business with a drinks party at TheYachtMarket.com Southampton Boat Show, on stand A018 on Friday 15 September from 16:15.
Barton Marine is supporting long-standing, British boatbuilder, Drascombe by Churchouse Boats, as they mark 50 years of business at the show. Dating back to the early 1960s, Founder John Watkinson, built himself a boat for his family, based on the desire for a daysailer capable of being trailed, safe and stable. This, the first Drascombe Lugger, was an immediate success and over the years more models were created: Dabber, Longboat, Coaster and Gig, which are still built by Churchouse Boats today.
Barton Marine has supplied Churchouse Boats for years, currently supplying Barton’s Victory Wooden Blocks to enhance the classic design of these traditional sailing yachts.
Sharon Geary-Harwood owner of Churchouse by Drascombe Boats, comments, “We are thrilled to celebrate 50 years of our fantastic business! Everyone is welcome to attend our drinks party, raise a glass to our incredible history and toast the next 50 years. We thank Barton Marine for their continued support.”
Chief Executive of Barton Marine, Suzanne Blaustone, adds, “We are very proud to be supporting Churchouse by Drascombe Boats as the company celebrates 50 years. It’s a great achievement and testiment to the many years of design, development and innovation within the firm. We wish Sharon and her team the best for the next 50 years!”
