Boat Brands and Companies at Goodwood Festival of Speed

This year a select band of great boating companies are exhibiting at Goodwood Festival of Speed. Below is a summary of some of them.

GO EARTH LTD

Stand 248

Go Earth offers a variety of services to its clients who are considering buying a recreational boat.

These range from an initial (no cost, no obligation, no hassle) advice and consultation right the way through the entire process until the client has taken possession of their new pride and joy. We act for the buyer, not the seller.

Go Earth are known for their expertise and outstanding service to their clients, helping them procure boats or yachts with the minimum of risk, hassle, time and cost.

As regular readers of Boat Trader know (I hope!), Go Earth also contributes a number of knowledgeable articles each month to Boat Trader (and occasionally to other publications). They cover multiple aspects around buying a boat, and are intended to be genuinely helpful to the boat buyer.

As Go Earth has curated a number of boating companies for the festival, they are offering a free advice tent. If you visit their stand (248), they will gladly provide you with a ‘goody bag’ full of useful information from the other boating companies, plus a free copy (subject to availability) of Boat Trader. If you have any queries that other boating companies might be able to assist with, then they will helpfully point you in the right direction.

Go Earth will also be showing its innovative automatic fender system. This system removes the hassle associated with deploying and storing fenders.

Also, there will be some festival only very special deals on Indespension trailers – offering a significant discount. These trailers cover everything from boats to cars (including covered trailers) to motorbikes, and even livestock!

DADS BOATS

Stand 306

Introducing The Pedal Boat. A unique design, 50 years in the making, which allows two people to face each other and both pedal forwards in comfort. Just sit back, sip a drink, chat and take some gentle exercise while enjoying the water.

The Dad’s Boats story

Dad, David to you, built his first pedal boat in his teenage years in the 1950s, a single seater to follow his remote controlled yacht, while keeping his hands free for the controls.

A couple of years later, the next generation of pedal boat started to form in his mind, a more sociable two seater, which allows both passengers to pedal forwards whilst facing each other. ‘Cyclone’ was born and accompanied David on his honeymoon around the Norfolk Broads in the 1960s. David’s children and grandchildren have grown up enjoying these boats for years.

Now it’s your turn as Dad’s Boats has created The Pedal Boat just for you.

Our unique Pedal Boats

Handmade in Norfolk, David’s innovative design creates a very enjoyable and liberating way for two people to spend time on the water together.

Our quality Pedal Boats allow you to sit in comfort and the quiet, smooth mechanism leaves you free to chat, sip a drink, or just sit back and enjoy the scenery.

Our boats are also good for your health providing gentle exercise. You will be surprised at how easy they are to pedal! They are good for the environment too as they have no engine and therefore no emissions and no noise.

The Elite Pedal Boat will be exhibited at the show.
