BYD (Buckley Yacht Design) appoint Boatwork Ltd as agents for the BTC-22 (Buckley Trail-able Cruiser 22) a 6.8m trailer sailing boat  (Prototype model known as RTC-22).

The BTC 22 is a 6.8M swing or lifting keel sailing boat offering exhilarating sailing that will be trailable and will accommodate 4 berths. A functional day sailer, the retractable keel will allow owners to explore rivers and get close to beaches, a portable toilet and stove means that even longer trips are possible. The functional layout will allow for anything from family cruising to short or single handed sailing but the main selling point, driving this entry level design, is that it will be affordable to buy and own. BYD hope that this affordable sailing boat will help to encourage prospective boat owners to get on the water.

Boatwork Ltd have bases across the UK and as well as catering for boat sales, have access to facilities in several coastal and inland locations for their mobile boatyard services that assist boat owners in the build, restoration, repair and maintenance of traditional and modern craft. The Boatwork Ltd team are qualified, experienced and have a natural passion for what they do.

Jami Buckley from BYD says ““This is the smallest design in our range but doesn’t compromise on quality or our design ethos. Owning a boat can be expensive, so we’ve focused on making the boat affordable and easy to maintain. As the boat is trail-able owners have the option of not having to pay expensive mooring fees.” Jami continues “It’s great to have Boatwork onboard promoting the BTC-22 and also taking care of the commissioning and maintenance for future owners. They have a full calendar planned to showcase the boat at various events up and down the country.”

Mark & Julie Bestford from Boatwork Ltd “We are excited to be involved with this modern versatile sailing craft which is designed and built in the UK. With its adaptability, performance and ease of ownership it will appeal to a wide audience. We deliver our services through a reliable strong work ethic combined with exceptional customer support and we are looking forward to providing the same level of service to both prospective and future owners of the BTC22.”
