Following on from the success of the launch of the Haines 26, orders continue to keep coming in.

The latest model from the factory has just been handed over to her delighted new owners on the Southern Broads. As with all of these boats they are fully customisable and this one has incorporated a supremely attractive colour scheme including lime green blinds which complement the light oak timber finish beautifully.

Congratulations to her proud new owners. We can’t wait to see her out on the river!

Crewsaver has launched a new lifejacket designed specifically for children.

The launch of the Euro 100N is an ‘all-rounder’ suitable for for inshore use including sailing, powerboating, kayaking and swimming.

It has 100N of buoyancy and is designed to be a comfortable fit with buoyant super soft foam.

The jacket is available in four sizes each with dual crotch straps and waist adjusters to provide a suitable fit with easy donning. The vibrant yellow colour combined with reflective tape provides onboard and in-water visibility.

Crewsaver’s children’s lifejacket range also includes the revamped Supersafe 150N foam lifejacket. It has been designed for ocean sailing with an increased buoyancy for quicker spin times, increased collar stability and greater mouth freeboard.

The jacket has a built-in safety harness and accommodates the use of a safety line.

The entry level Spiral 100N is available in yellow and orange and is suitable for inshore use including surface watersports and swimming.

For older children, there is the Crewfit 150N junior lifejacket, an automatic gas lifejacket incorporating Fusion 3D technology
