Owner's Comments

We have owned a launch for years, and they have always become the boat that you will never sell. They suit our life style perfectly. Always ready to go, every very simple thing that you need, for that planned or last minute weekend picnic, or summer evening beach barbecue.

The only limitation was the slow speed and the therefore limited exploring range and area.

Enter Trompů.. all the classic good looks, and elegance of a very traditional launch, with very low maintenance needs and burden. AND with range extending pace. It is now very easy to add a lunch at the "Company Shed" further afield than was previously possible

If you want a great launch for picnicking, fishing or leisurely creek crawling, with that extra punch to get you home before the shower (and we are not talking about the Romford Navy) Tromp could be just what you are looking for.

Why is she going? I have too many boats now, and with the summer that we have been enjoying it is a question that I keep asking myself. We have bought a "one off" closed cabin launch with accommodation, as our retirement boat, and I can't justify two.
