We have owned "Boto" for 8 years and we have found her to be a wonderful family boat.
Her large deep cockpit has been a huge bonus with the family and for entertaining, and with the new upgraded engine she’s perfect for both river and coastal cruising.
We’ve cruised her mainly locally with regular beach and fishing trips around the Dartmouth/ Salcombe areas and thoroughly enjoyed our sailing in her, now looking to up-size.
HISTORY/ADDITIONAL COMMENTS :
Featured in Classic Boat Magazine in 1989, and described by the late Commodore of the Totnes Boating Association as ‘the most beautiful and practical boat for the Dart bar none’. She has been lovingly maintained for the past 8 years by her present owner, who has had her stripped back to bare wood for the finest varnish and coach-deck finish during that time, including 6 coats of exterior varnish and 3 coats of deck paint last summer.
If you are looking for the perfect family boat to potter up and down the river to the pubs and restaurants in; do fishing trips out to the skerries; anchor and swim off the small beaches out of Dartmouth; sail to Blackpool Sands or Brixham and beyond; and sail on river and sea, you need look no further. A ‘Boto’ is an Amazonian river dolphin. She has a 7 ft 6” beam, and draws just 30 inches – ideal for getting up the creeks at low tide when desired. Boto has a large cockpit (much larger and more accommodating than a shrimper) which can comfortably fit a large family, and a two berth cabin – with a boom-tent the present owner slept as a family of five on her when their children were small.
