The North of England’s only specialist sale of Boats and Fishing equipment, to be held by Carlisle-based H&H Auction Rooms, will see a motor cruiser, sailing boat, kayaks, outboard engines and a range of rods and reels go under the hammer. The annual sale, on Saturday 16th March is a highlight of the auction rooms’ calendar and is perfectly timed for the start of the fishing season, or for those looking to enjoy springtime on the water,
With 300 lots registered, there are several boats, and a range of outboard engines, including Mercury, Yahama and Seagull engines. For those looking to take up waterborne fitness there are also a collection of ready-to-paddle kayaks.
It is anticipated that the main star of this sale will be an immaculate 1970’s 21ft motor cruiser with a Volvo Penta engine on its own trailer. This fantastic boat, perfect for someone keen to explore and enjoy the Lake District from the lakes themselves, is expected to achieve in the region of £3k – £4k
For those who follow the wind, sailing boats which feature in this sale include a bilge keel 21ft day boat, a GP14 in timber, currently sat on a trailer, and a 16ft fishing Shetland, with a Mercury 50HP outboard. Dozens of fishing rods, reels, ropes and more equipment than you can shake your shackles at, have also been entered.
The sales were the brain-child of Stephen Farthing Auctioneer and Valuer at H&H Auction Rooms, and in giving information he said:
“We initiated our first boat and fishing auction three years ago as we were aware that there was a growing interest in specialist sales of this nature. Ever since we have received immense support from all of those who live life on or enjoy the water, and I am proud that we are able to offer a platform for these people to both sell and purchase their nautical and fishing equipment.”
“From the outset, all of the sales have seen tremendous boats and fishing equipment sail through the auction rooms and our last sale we saw a sailing dinghy sell for over £1,000. We have some exceptional entries in this sale for those who enjoy sailing or fishing ”
H&H Auction Rooms is one of the longest established auction houses in the North of England and hold a weekly sale of antiques and house furnishings.
